Beer releases are like block parties with souvenirs. This weekend, Insight is bringing back its popular Doe Eyes saison, a late-summer seasonal that’s brewed with, on average, a pound of cherries per pint. They’ll sell limited supplies of the beer in take-home bottles, and other fruited beers will be on tap throughout the day, including Strawberry Wit, Peach DankBot, Oaked Doe Eyes, Raspberry Hell Chicken, and Grapefruit Trollway. Meanwhile, the ’90s will come to life via five different themed cover bands: Trompe Le Monde (Pixies), Fistful of Datas (’90s alternative), Pleezer (Weezer), Alive (Pearl Jam), and Lithium (Nirvana). Hit up eBay for a vintage Lollapalooza shirt and come get in line for six distinct fruit-forward beers. A portion of the $2 entry fee goes toward educational nonprofit Sunny Day Earth Solutions.
