Weekend Tap Update: Live Music + Craft Beer = One Great Weekend.

Who doesn’t like a little entertainment with their local and regionally brewed beer, or perhaps it’s the other way around, depending on your priorities.  No matter, craft beer pairs well with any good time, and this weekend will feature plenty of chances to take in all of the above.  Leading off the weekend tonight at Martin’s in downtown Roanoke, South Carolina based band Dangermuffin will be playing alongside a Starr Hill (Crozet, Va) tap takeover event.  Tickets for Nelson County’s upcoming Lockn’ (formerly Interlocken) multi day music festival will also be given away.  Prior to the show, the band will also be at a meet and greet event at Ripple, just a few blocks away from Martin’s.  According to Ripple’s facebook page, they will also have a Starr Hill tasting as well.  Do yourself a favor – if you’re interested in kicking off your weekend with a blast, love great live music and great craft beer, start off at Ripple (event from 7 to 8pm) and then make your way over to Martin’s for the show a bit later on.

Not that you need any additional reason to spend some in Grandin Village, since many of the restaurants there not only offer great food but plenty of craft beer, but the latest edition of their Grandin “Chillage” is also happening tonight, with area favorites Tobacco Apache and Electric Chameleon providing the music and plenty of Parkway Brewing beers on hand.   Before (or after,, or both) Chillage, make your way over to Local Roots Restaurant, which has just added Parkway’s Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged Dubbel.  It comes with a complimentary glass from the brewery.  Just a note, plenty of interesting German imported beer will be upcoming at Local Roots as well, just in time for Oktoberfest.

Looking ahead, several other events are coming up fast.  On September 10th, the folks from Wine Gourmet will be hosting a beer tasting dinner featuring Unibroue, at 1906 Ale House.  Also, Jack Brown’s in downtown has a couple of steal the pint nights coming up, the first on September 10 featuring Lost Rhino and the next on the 16th featuring Richmond’s own Legend Brewing.
