This Saturday marks the return of Insight Brewing’s epic beer party. Try their grapefruit-tinged IPA Crazy Taxi, the super hoppy Dankbot, or the summertime delight Crazy Aunt, a gin-and-tonic-inspired ale (think shandy with a kick of lime). Starting at 2:30 p.m., a new cask will be tapped every hour until they’re gone. This party will also see the release of Jupiter’s Shield, a special brew made with sage and juniper and aged in a blackberry whiskey barrel. Order a glass for $6 or take it home by the bottle for $15. The party will be both inside and out, with live music from the likes of folk artist Preston Gunderson, the bluesy Darners, and Pleezer, a Weezer tribute band. To keep guests sated, food trucks Red Cow, O’Neills Cheese Curds, and Del Sur Empanadas will be stopping by. Other entertainment includes fire dancers, games, and a dunk tank.
