Weekend Warrior: April 5-7

Beer, music and... fitness?


It's that time of the week again – when you start to ask yourself, "what am I going to do this weekend?" Sometimes our brains don't have enough power left to even begin to think about making plans.

Well, that's where we come in. Here's a bit of what's going on the next few days that can help turn you into a proper Weekend Warrior.

Friday - Double Mountain Tap Takeover & Tasting

Saturday - Sway Wild

  • Laura Totten
The duo of Mandy Fer and Dave McGraw are back with a new name, Sway Wild! Their latest release, "Off-Grid Lo-Fi" was recorded completely with solar and wind powered electricity on an off-grid island in Washington state. This is a night of Americana you won't want to miss. Opening the night is Benji Nagel and Brent Alan.
