Interested in learning how to brew beer and want to jump straight to all-grain brewing? Or have you been making beer with extract and/or partial mash techniques and want to switch to all-grain? Join us for one of our Intro to All-Grain Brewing classes, where we’ll lead you through the all-grain process as well as highlight the differences between extract (including partial mashes) and all-grain brewing. All of this will be accomplished while making a batch of our favorite ale on the Grainfather, an all in one brewing system. All attendees will receive 10% off of their first purchase of all-grain equipment (some exclusions apply).

John McKay Band & The Symbols @ Dickens Opera House
May 26 @ 8:00 pm
John McKay Band & The Symbols @ Dickens Opera House | Longmont | Colorado | United States

Doors at 7pm, Show at 8pm! Tickets: $10

In 1998 John McKay recorded his debut CD, entitled Wiley Cotton, which is dedicated to his father. The CD is an acoustic-electric blend of eleven of his original songs. IT showcases a range of bluesy folk and soulful rhythm n’ Blues. Some of the musicians that appear on the CD include Johns brother Bill McKay on piano and organ, Derek Trucks, members of Runaway Truck Ramp, Dave Watts from the Motet, Edwin Hurwitz from Shakedown Street and Mark Vann from Leftover Salmon. Throughout all the years of performing, John continues to play with his brother Bill. This unique duo of guitar and keys delivers a smooth vocal harmony above rich and tight musical arrangements. A musical portrait of Americana/Blues and Folk/Rock that has been developed over a 30 year span is hard to match.

The Symbols are a popular female-fronted blues/funk/rock trio from Fort Collins, Colorado. Formed in 2011 by guitarist Jasco (former guitar player for Grammy-nominated Blinddog Smokin’) and vocalist/songwriter/ bassist Mer Sal, The Symbols are centered around a dynamic musical and life partnership. They write their own music, in addition to writing arrangements of known tunes, to be different sounds and styles than they were intended. Their unique sound, charisma, and songs are winning hearts through theaters and festivals across the country.
