Memorial Day weekend is celebrated as a day of remembrance for all of the soldiers that have lost their lives protecting our great country. Many of us show our respects in various ways, but ultimately we also like to celebrate our freedom by taking a three day weekend. There are many events occurring this weekend, especially in the brewery world.
The weather should be nice for barbecuing and enjoying the outdoors. It is a great time to raise a glass in honor of all American heroes this weekend. Here are some noteworthy events happening this weekend. Even if you don’t attend one of these events, it is a great time to visit a local brewery or find someplace new.
