The Inland Northwest has shown no sign that there’s such a thing as “too many beer festivals,” so welcome a new one to the scene Saturday: the Downtown Coeur d’Alene Brew Fest. It’s a six-hour celebration of 30 Idaho and regional beers and ciders taking place at McEuen Park, and besides the obvious tasting of delicious adult beverages, there will be several food trucks on hand, as well as music from the Sara Brown Band and Native Sun Band. Best of all, there will still be plenty of day left when the fest is over — to either continue the party or catch a nap after all the day drinking.
Sat, July 1 from 1-7 pm • $25 (includes six pours); free for designated drivers • McEuen Park • 420 E. Front Ave, CdA • bit.ly/2rHKQlM
