It’s not summer until there’s barbecue and binge drinking, and Jungle Jim’s is providing more than 350 different beers from more than 100 breweries — national and international — at its ninth annual International Beer Fest. If you don’t know any beers besides Nati Light, there will be experts on hand to expand your beer knowledge beyond the clearance cooler at Speedway.
At least try a Bonus Brew: Jungle Jim’s selection of highly rated and rare beers. In the event that you do make a regrettable decision, the charity auction will provide a perfect opportunity to set your karma straight. Attendants will learn about beers and breweries from around the world (and enjoy a free picnic-style meal with a barbecue sandwich), so set your short-term memory to steel-trap status.
7-10 p.m. June 13-14. $45; $15 non-drinker. The Oscar Event Center at Jungle Jim’s, 5440 Dixie Highway, Fairfield, junglejims.com
