bluesbrewsNo doubt: Great beer compliments great music. Unfortunately, too many sound-and-suds fests forget good taste when it comes to the tunes. Not the case with Blues and Brews a street fair held on tree-lined South Pearl Street.

The all-day concert features finely selected blues acts, including John Lee Hooker Jr. and Henry Butler, and beer from home-state favorites, like Left Hand, Great Divide, and New Belgium breweries.

Sat, July 11. Noon-10 p.m.
