Soaking up Ales for Arts

Ales for Arts V, a fundraiser for Churchill Arts Council’s 2014-2015 programs, will be held in the Lariat Courtyard tomorrow afternoon from 3-7 p.m.

Admission to the event is free and for just $25 you can get unlimited beer tastings. Participating brewers and breweries include Great Basin, Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada as well as local beer makers such as Bunejug Brewing (Ed Rybold, Gary Wick and Harve Smith) and Barry Cochran who will offer up an Alpha Crux, IPA and a Vanilla Porter.

Also available for purchase — for the non-beer drinkers out there — will be a craft cocktail and wine along with an array of sausages, salads and snacks.

Music for the event will be provided by Old River Road featuring Dineen Little. For more info, call the Churchill Arts Council at 775-423-1440.
