BENEFIT: Drink up: April Brews Day benefits Max Higbee Center

Join local and regional brewers from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Saturday, April 25, at Depot Market Square, at Railroad Avenue and Maple Street, as they share their micro-brews in a benefit for Max Higbee Center, a nonprofit agency that provides recreational opportunities for teens and adults with developmental disabilities.

For $40, VIP ticket holders are admitted one hour early, with shorter lines and smaller crowds, plus pretzels, a collectible tasting glass, and seven tasting tickets. General admission ticket holders, who pay $20, receive a collectible tasting cup, pretzels, and five tasting tickets.

Everyone must buy a ticket to attend, whether or not they drink beer, but tickets can also be used for non-alcoholic beverages and for food.

Vendors will include StrEAT Food, Kurly Fries, Barebones BBQ, El Capitan, Goat Mountain Pizza, and Food Haus, and there will be gluten-free ciders, root beer, Kombucha, lemonade, and more. Each food vendor is required to have at least one gluten-free and vegan option.
