The Suburbs have been rocking since the 70s and they are bringing their high energy set to Summit Brewing’s Backyard Bash celebration — set to take place on Saturday, September 12 from noon to 7 p.m. This will be the fourth time the brewery has hosted the bash after a one year hiatus last year.
Tickets will cost $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Half of the proceeds will go to the Minnesota Music Coalition which supports up and coming independent artists. Summit has raised over $40,000 for the organization through 3 years of hosting this event.
Summit founder Mark Stutrud is excited to bring back the bash. “We’re very excited for the return of the Backyard Bash,” says Stutrud. “What better way to celebrate 29 years of making craft beer in Minnesota than to have the classic Minnesota band The Suburbs headline our party? This event is our way of thanking all of the Summit fans and to raise awareness for the Minnesota Music Coalition. Come raise a pint with us!”
The beer itself will look familiar along with some special cask releases and food trucks will be slinging delicious eats for hungry folks. Others bands performing include Gramma's Boyfriend, Toki Wright with DJ Willie Shu and Lydia Liza. Black Market Brass Hotpants Djs and Al Church will also make appearences.
