Monday, April 22, 2013’s Lowdown

Wait, so this is Earth Day?

While most Earth Day event planners jump the gun to encourage maximum weekender participation, Fortuna’s Eel River Brewery chose to exhibit patience and wait ‘til Monday, which is actually Earth Day. (Sounds crazy, I know. Look it up.)

ERB — which prides itself on being the nation’s first certified craft brewery — hosts an Earth Day Festival in their beer garden featuring music by the Compost Mountain Boys, a bike show courtesy of Henderson Center Bicycle, eco-savvy business booths and obligatory, groovy tie dye shirt making materials. 

Also, beer.
