On Saturday Uppercut Boxing Gym will be hosting a beer tasting, art show, and fundraiser called Posters and Pints at 6 PM featuring some of the best beer and artwork in town. The cost will be $20 to enter (beer samples included) with a portion going to Art Buddies, a group committed to mentoring urban youth. Artists such as Jawsh Lemke of Surly Darkness fame, CHUX, Adam Turman, David Witt and many others will be selling limited edition posters here as well for $30 a piece.
Some of the breweries that will be pouring 3 oz samples (included in your $20 ticket price) will be Surly, Steel Toe, Dangerous Man, 612 Brew, Lake Monster, Fulton, Indeed, Summit, Lift Bridge, Tin Whiskers, Boom Island, and Day Block. Check out the program listing all the beers available here.
Food trucks will also be present with a lineup of Nate Dogs, Borough, Aki’s Bakery, and Gastro Truck. Food of course will be sold separately and is not included in the ticket price.
If you plan to buy tickets the day of the event they are only accepting plastic. Plan ahead and grab your tickets here if you don't like lines.
