Stones Throw Brewery is excited to invite the entire community to their Kill the Keg, Plant a Tree Block Party on Friday, April 28, 2017. Different beer options from an assortment of Bellingham craft breweries will be on tap, with a trophy and bragging rights going to the Bellingham brewery whose keg blows empty first.

As always with Stones Throw Brewery block parties, admission to the block party is free and family-friendly. The first 100 people to purchase a beer at the competition will also receive a free potted tree sapling to take home and plant, in honor of Earth Day on April 22.
Live music for the event will begin at 5:00 p.m. Friday night, and will go until 8:30 p.m., with Ron Hardesty and The Devilly Brothers the two acts set for the festivities.
