The ground rules are simple. Bring a session beer and a special beer accompanied by the artisan who created it. Brewers, their beers, good music and folks who care. Learn more at

Carrie Rodriguez is a prodigious fiddler, a soulful singer, and a probing songwriter. “I have to say I am very impressed,” said Lucinda Williams, speaking of Carrie in the New York Times. “She’s got something unique in her voice that’s very subtle and a little smoky and sweet. She’s got a refreshingly spunky attitude to go along
with it. I detect a certain wisdom in her, and yet a sense of wonder as well.”
She’s worked with Rickie Lee Jones, John Prine, Mary Gauthier, Alejandro
Escovedo, and Bill Frisell, and appeared on A Prairie Home Companion,
Mountain Stage, and Austin City Limits. Her music is emotional,
direct, and full of spirit. Carrie is a one-of-a-kind, natural talent. Come see
why she’s exploding on the national scene. This will be a seated show.
