Nearly ever summer weekend seems to bring another beer festival.
The Bourbon Theater in Lincoln will host a beer fest on Saturday. But this particular festival is a bit different in that it will feature beers from local breweries. Those participating are Modern Monks, Zipline Brewing, Blue Blood Brewing, Ploughshare Brewing and Empyrean Brewing Co., and they’ll offer samples of fruit beers, sour beers, barrel-aged beers and various other beers not yet available to the public.
In addition, a screening of a documentary about Michael Jackson (the pioneer in the craft brewing movement, not the pop singer) will take place at 2 p.m. Jackson died of Parkinson’s disease in 2007; part of the proceeds from the event will support the Parkinson’s Foundation.
The festival will take place from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday at the Bourbon Theatre, 1415 O St. Admission is $20 in advance or $25 at the door.
