On Tap: 19th Annual Garden City Brewfest , Sat. May 7

Next to Grizzly football games, few events in Missoula attract as big a crowd as the annual Garden City Brewfest.  This year the Missoula Downtown Association’s event takes place Saturday May 7, 2011 from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Caras Park.  Sixty or so beers will be available for your tasting pleasure. Tickets are $10 which include a tasting glass and two drink tokens. (Note:  The Missoula Downtown Association’s website says tickets are $7, but everything else I’ve seen says $10.)  Additional tokens are $1 each.

Live music will be provided by The Big Sky Mudflaps, Kung Fu Kongress and Secret Powers. Food will be available from the Sentinel Kiwanis, El Cazador, Sichuan BBQ, Isla’s Lemonade, The Grille and IZA Asian Restaurant. With the rainy, cold spring Missoula has struggled through, we’re due for some bright, warm sunshine, right? For more information, see the Missoula Downtown Association’s website or their event on facebook.
