While it may not seem like it some days, Spring is getting here, if ever so slowly. After a Winter of cabin fever, we're ready for the Spring's first big party- Brews & BBQ 2018 at the Ives Concert Park.

The 5th annual Brews & BBQ will be from 3-9 PM on Saturday, May 12th at the Ives Concert Park. Headlining the event are two amazing musicians. Doyle Bramhall II has worked with Eric Clapton, Roger Waters, Elton John, Tesedchi Trucks Band and many others. He also had a band called Arc Angels with Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon from Stevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble.

Amy Helm is no stranger to the Brews & BBQ stage. She headlined our first-ever Brews & BBQ 5 years ago and we're thrilled to have her back. Amy is of course the daughter of legendary Band drummer/vocalist Levon Helm, and an amazing musician and singer in her own right. She released her first album, Didn't It Rain, in 2015.

In addition to the great music, we'll have lots of BBQ from many great area restaurants and a cool selection of craft beers from New Belgium and other fine breweries. Tickets are just $15 in advance, and we'll throw the first brew in with your advance ticket. Get them here.
