Before we get into the future, we should acknowledge that Lost Signal Brewing Company has released a new beer this week, Beach Party IPA, and they are having fun stuff all week, like Luau Rib Tacos special that runs until the 10th. Beach Party IPA is a pineapple and coconut IPA, which sounds like it would be mighty tasty with some tacos.

  • Hold Fast Brewing Company will host Sarah Loethen from 7-9 PM this Friday night.
  • Tie & Timber – SGF favorite Jimmy Rea will play starting at 7:30 PM. Jimmy is multi-talented and puts on a super fun show.
  • Mother’s Brewing Backyard – Alyssa Galvan plays from 6-8 PM. She’s a 15 year old singer/songwriter from SWMO, and the word is she’s got serious talent.

  • Lost signal Brewing Company is having a beach party on Saturday. Games, food specials, beer, and live music from Deja Crew starting at 6:30 PM.

  • Hold Fast has Isaac Kenneth Saturday from 7-9 PM.

Further out, but on the radar:

The 8th Annual Tour De Crawdad is in Mother’s Backyard on April 17th. This is an annual charity bike ride that benefits Champions Committed to Kids. You can go for a 25, 40, or 60 mile ride or you can just come hang out and eat crawfish cooked by The Cajun Cooker. If you’re not big on shellfish, you can always have a hamburger, too.

Tie & Timber Beer Company 3rd Anniversary Shebang! is on May 1st starting at noon. Acts include the Shandies, MarleyGrass, Rea, Moore, Newman, and The Hook Knives. They’ll also be releasing several beers that day. Stay tuned.
