Tuesday, 5–9 p.m.; Carmine’s on Penn, 92 S. Pennsylvania St.; prices vary

Kyle’s Brew Fest: Taste the finest beer from 30 craft breweries and take in a show from Kyle Hollingsworth Band to support Conscious Alliance, which provides emergency food relief and empowerment programs for youth to impoverished communities across the U.S. Be one of the first 1,000 ticket holders, and you could take home a commemorative drinking glass; if you miss out on that perk, bid on autographed memorabilia from Colorado’s own String Cheese Incident in the silent auction.
