Seventh-annual B'Arc & Brew Craft Beer Festival

Saturday, Sept. 22, Highlands Hollow Brewhouse

by

The Arc knows the fastest way to Boisean's hearts (and their wallets) is through the pooches they call family—which is probably why the B'Arc & Brew Craft Beer Festival, billed as Southwest Idaho's largest dog-friendly suds fest, is back and barking. While most events give people permission to bring their dogs, B'Arc & Brew instead invites the canines to shepard their humans along for local beer drinking, a costume contest and "Mutt Strut" dog parade, silent auction bidding, Highlands Hollow food and vendors catering to a pup's every need. The fest includes sets by eight local bands, among them Deviant Kin, Bread & Circus, and Knew Normal. To top it off, each $20 entry fee includes a free taster mug and eight beer tickets, and proceeds benefit The Arc.
