Shop local, drink local

If you must shop on so called Black Friday, please do so with beer in hand. At Excelsior Brewing’s Chriskindlmarkt, a traditional German holiday market, there will be beautiful things for sale, food to keep you going, music and that aforementioned beer. Market going on all weekend.

More shopping, with beer

Dangerous Man and Fair State are getting in on the artisan market trend and are hosting Gumball Collective, an artist consignment shop featuring Midwest handmade items. Gumball Collective will take over the two breweries on Friday and Saturday.

You need more beer
