- $10 for entry to Two Brothers summer beer festival for two on Saturday, June 21 ($20 value)
Two Brothers Summer Festival
Though the Two Brothers Summer Festival might seem like an excuse to celebrate the warm weather, it also serves a second, noble purpose. Devised by the brewery's founders, the Ebel brothers, this week-long event supports the local and regional community, philanthropic programs, and a growing number of charities. Over the past 17 years, the company has been supporting children's charities, such as granting wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
On Saturday, bands take to the stage at Two Brothers Roundhouse as part of a lineup that includes the group Los Lobos, Cornmeal, and Chicago indie-rock duo Autumn Defense. Activities for kids, including a show from performer Ralph's World, ensure that even the youngest visitors aren't left out. One of the weekend's other big events is a homebrewing competition. The winner's recipe will be brewed at Two Brothers.
