Rock'n Brews & BBQ

Boise Spectrum, Sept. 8


If you like beer, barbeque or rock music—or, like most Idahoans, all three—then oh boy, do we have news for you. The Rock'n Brews & BBQ competition is back in town for its third year, ready for a day of pitting the region's top meat masters against each other for the title of State BBQ Champion and a shot at the Jack Daniels National Competition in Tennessee. Even better, all of that smoked and grilled deliciousness from more than 25 barbeque teams will be backed up by a beer tasting of local brews from more than a dozen Idaho breweries from noon to 5 p.m. Tickets to the tasting cost $25 in advance or $30 at the door, but access to the rest of the festivities, including concerts by The Voltz and The Weary Times, is free. Grab a couple of buddies or bring the whole family.
