Widmer Brothers Arts & DraughtsWidmer Brother Brewing’s Arts & Draughts will celebrate the 78th anniversary of repeal of Prohibition with a special event celebrating a new look and new releases from the Brewery as well as the craft of local beer, food, and artistry.

The evening will include handcrafted Widmer Brothers brews uniquely paired with savory appetizers, live music by Sneakin’ Out, and artists on site including lightbox artists David Klein and Nick Woolley, photographer Squid Vicious, glass-blowing duo Justin Parker and Andi Kovel from Esque Studio, and more.
