The Mississippi Street Fair and a pair of Bastille Day festivals would be plenty for a normal weekend, but this is not a normal weekend.
This is going to be a hell of a weekend.
Like your beers tart? The Belmont Station is kicking off Puckerfest, a Celebration of Sour Beers at 6pm on Friday, July 10. Double Mountain brewer Matt Swihart will be tapping kegs of his Devils Kriek (made with Bing Cherries) and Rainier Kriek (Rainier Cherries). The cherries are from his own orchard and he will have some of the fresh fruit available to taste with the beers. Watch the Belmont Station website for additional sour beer events – the fest runs until the 16th.
Friday the Timbers travel to Texas for the first time since 2003, where they’ll be facing the expansion Austin Aztex.
The match will be broadcast at 5:30pm on USLLive, and will be shown at the following local venues:
- Rogue Distillery & Public House (1339 NW Flanders)
- All Ages: Beulahland (118 NE 28th Ave)
- Cheerful Bullpen (1730 SW Taylor)
- St. John’s Theater & Pub (8203 N. Ivanhoe St)
For more information, changed venues, and new venues visit this thread on the Soccer City USA Message Board.
In the evening Saturday, July 11th (after the Timbers match or the Mississippi Street Fair!) head over to It’s A Beautiful Pizza (3342 SE Belmont) for the latest Hall of Records sponsored Wax Broker Riot, a social, collective environment to listen and discover both new and old vinyl.
This edition of the riot will be taking place on the back patio. Enjoy the summer evening while you dig for records (mainly soul, funk, jazz and breaks from the 60s and 70s) and enjoy a beer. The party is true to the (eventual) Hall of Records store concept: blending records with beer.
