Still not convinced to attend Horse Thief’s parking lot party TOMORROW, July 22, 5:00-10:30 pm? A la Mr. Letterman, here are our Summer Swelter Top 10 reasons to join us.

1. Beer

We’re tapping our signature brew for this event–Summer Swelter, a lemon radler. Plus Baderbrau and Blue Island Beer Company will be pouring with us!

2. Food

Neil’s making gourmet hot dogs. Dig this: house made frankfurter with house made mustard; Korean duck with spicy slaw; and South African lamb with yogurt and cucumber.

3. Patriotism

We kick off at 5:00 pm with pipes, drums, and a color guard paying special tribute to Conner T. Lowry and all fallen service men and women.

4. Honoring Service Members

All current and former members of the Armed Forces are invited to wear their uniforms and participate in our ceremony at 5:00 pm. Members in uniform will receive a complimentary ticket for beer or food.

Funds raised from Summer Swelter will benefit the Conner T. Lowry Memorial Fund and veterans organizations.

6. Music

The Pack Drumline and Dance Crew performs at around 6:00, blending rhythm, dance, and melody in an electrifying performance.

7. Beer Themed Vendors

Our first-ever artisanal popup vendors market features amazing beer-themed artwork, jewelry, and handmade products. See beer barrels, caps, and labels turned into jewelry and functional art!

8. Wearable Art

As in, the aforementioned beer-themed jewelry. Plus, resident artist Cathy Sorich will lend her abundant talents, offering face and body art to our guests. You know you want some!
