Horse Thief Hollow: Summer Swelter

July 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Horse Thief Hollow to Celebrate Summer Swelter 

July brings barbecues and sidewalk games, and you can enjoy the best of both at Horse Thief Hollow’s Summer Swelter on July 13. The award-winning brewery and restaurant will combine its popular summer street party with a bean bags tournament this year. As always, the event will raise money for charity, and this year’s recipient is Gigi’s Playhouse. 

Visit the parking lot at 10426 S. Western Ave. starting at noon to watch teams compete in the cornhole tournament, with a prize of $500 going to the winning team. Horse Thief Hollow craft brews will be flowing, including the debut of two sour beers from new head brewer Jake Nelson. 

“It’ll be a sour Summer Swelter this year, to reflect Jake’s brewing expertise, and we’re really excited to showcase his talents,” said Horse Thief’s Neil Byers. One of the sour beers will be a mango goze, Byers said, and the other may be infused with habañero chile 

The Hawaiian themed menu will feature a pineapple BBQ pig roast with Hawaiian potato salad and vegetarian poke bowls, available at 6:00 pm.  

At 7:00 pm, blues sensation Larry McCray will perform on Horse Thief’s outdoor stage, courtesy of State Farm’s John Harrell, the event’s music sponsor. For details, visit www.horsethiefbrewing.com
