The Best Little Beer Fest You've Never Heard About
August 13, 2010 - 12:44 AMOkay, maybe you have been to this one, but last year was my first time and I was totally blown away. Until last year, I had never even heard about this festival and it is awesome.
This Saturday the Porterhouse Pub in Mount Vernon will celebrate its 8th Annual Porterhouse Charity Brewfest to benefit the historic Lincoln Theater. The event features great craft beer and world-class music, mostly blues. They shut down the entire street in front of the Porterhouse and put on one helluva show.
Last year, this was a great event. In fact, I was surprised that I had never heard about it. Kind of freaked me out, actually. I mean, great beer and great music? What's not to love? Below, you'll find all the details for this years festival.
Here's our video from last year's festival.
Here are all the details from the Porterhouse website.
2:00 pm Saturday August 14th between 1st and Main On Gates Street will be shut down and set up for great brews, raffle prizes, live bands, and dancing to raise funds for the Lincoln Theatre. Breweries from the north west region and the west coast will be bringing their best craft beers for your enjoyment along with some great local music.
This years musical lineup includes:
The Bill Mattocks Band, high energy first rate contemporary blues and blues-based rock.
Tim Halpin and the Better Half, "Funk-infused Rock-N-Roll" style
and last but not least
The Red Hot Blues Sisters, internationally recognized Blues/folk sound
Tickets can be purchased at the Pub or Lincoln Theatre for
$20 in advance, or $24 @ the gates.
Each ticket provides 5 (4oz.) Pours and entrance to the festivities. Please remember this event is strictly 21 and over.
All proceeds will go to help keep the Lincoln Theatre a cornerstone of local culture and history. So come down and celebrate summer with us for a noble cause with craft brews, great music, and good times!
