Beer and music fest

It’s the middle of summer. It’s hot. The kids are already driving you nuts. No better time to drink some great beer for a good cause. Aviator Brewing Company in Fuquay-Varina, N.C. is holding a Music Fest and Gulf Oil Spill Fundraiser on Saturday, July 17. Two local bands will perform. New beers will be on tap, including a special black Belgian India Pale Ale named Black Horizon that will be sold to raise money for the Florida Aquarium’s clean-up efforts. And – everyone cross their fingers – the day also might be a celebration that the gusher is finally capped. The event will run from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the brewery, 209 Technology Park Lane, Fuquay-Varina, N.C. 27526. For more information, visit here.

Rumor has it that Aviator will begin bottling its beer soon. That means I won’t have to drink an entire growler when I open it (it’s a shame to waste beer).
