If Pioneer Day is not your thing and "Beer and Pie Day" festivities are too small, I have a great alternative for you.
The 3rd Annual Evanston Brew Fest is happening on Pioneer Day Weekend and will offer Utah's counter culture victims an opportunity to celebrate our own brand of Pioneers; Craft Brewers.
This is a great town to hold a beerfest. It's proximity to the Wasatch Front provides a quick & easy drive, the city has plenty of lodging, the town is full of bars and most importantly it doesn't have Utah's bullshit beer restrictions. You could actually get a high abv Utah beer on tap! Wahoo! Not to mention other great regional craft beers to sample. We'll keep you up to date on all the particulars, who's going to be pouring etc, but for now just mark Saturday, July 23, 2011 on your calendar.
The Fest runs from 1:00 pm until 10:00 PM on Main Street in Downtown Evanston. Microbrews from 1:00 - 6:00 pm and then street party until 10:00 PM!
