It’s early August…and you’re ready for the fun. Well good, because we’ve got this! From the nation’s coolest beer events, to movies, music and cutting edge TV – we’ve got you covered. Plus we’ve another weekend beer pick for you, because we know you’ll be drinking.
Music / Music / Music / Beer / Music (San Francisco, CA) – There’s no bigger, or better, musical gathering happening anywhere in the face of the planet this weekend than the Outside Lands 2018. This year’s festival, which is returning to Golden Gate Park for its 11th outing is three days (August 10th-12th) of cutting-edge music and a diverse array of artists such as The Weeknd, Beck , Janet Jackson and Florence + The Machine.
Beer / Beer / Music / Beer – And while you’re at Outside Lands, stop by the festival’s Beer Lands outpost to celebrate Northern California’s powerful craft beer culture with an amazing collection of beer from 25 SERIOUS breweries, hailing from San Francisco, Oakland, Fort Bragg, Sonoma and Anderson Valley.
On The Big Screen – This weekend’s big movie opening and we mean big as in BIG, not big as in “it’s a big deal” because it probably isn’t…but it does feature a GIGANTIC shark. Styled after those classic cheesy B-movies from the 50’s and 60’s that are so bad that they become fun, The Meg stars Jason Stratham as a deep sea rescue diver battling an unstoppable threat… a 75-foot-long pre-historic shark known as the Megalodon.
Serious Beer Midwestern Style (Madison, WI) – The Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild will be hosting the 31st edition of the Great Taste of the Midwest this Saturday August 11th at Olin Park, overlooking Lake Monona and you don’t want to miss it. One of the nation’s premier beer festivals this year’s beerganza will feature an astounding 1400+ beers from the region’s most dynamic brewers this year, so be smart and pace yourself.
