If you're in town for the UM commencement ceremonies the weekend of May 4th, then you might as well take a stroll over to Caras Park while you're there - that's where this year's Garden City Brewfest is going down. I can't think of a better way to celebrate graduating college than with a beer festival, so this is definitely worth checking out.

Here's the details you'll need to know, courtesy of their Facebook Event Page:

"Garden City BrewFest is free for anyone to attend and enjoy! $20 to taste brews (includes one 7-ounce commemorative glass & five beer tokens; additional tokens are 2 for $3). Now in its 27th year, Garden City BrewFest is the official kickoff to the warm-weather season. All are welcome to enjoy an afternoon in the Heart of Missoula.

It’s UM Commencement Weekend, so stop by to celebrate!

Enjoy over 70 beers, including Big Sky Brewing's Spiked Seltzer, plus a wine/mimosa bar or get yourself some food by visiting one of the local food trucks.

Beer list: Coming soon!
Food trucks: Big Dipper Ice Cream, El Cazador, Dobi's Teriyaki, Clove Cart Pizza, Sentinel Kiwanis Club of Missoula

We'll have Rotgut Whines, Good Old Fashioned & Moneypenny-Missoula,MT with the jams all afternoon!"
