Editor’s Picks: Summit County’s best bets for the weekend

It's time to have a little Summit County pride with three of our local breweries recently winning medals at the latest North American Brewers' Association Awards.

Pug Ryan's Brewery in Dillon cleaned up with three medals for their canned lagers, including a gold in the "Bohemian-Style Pilsner" for the Peacemaker Pilsner, silver in the "Munich-Style Dark" for the Deadeye Dunkel and bronze in the "Helles Bock/Maibock" for Hideout Helles. Over in Frisco, Backcountry Brewery won a gold in the "Robust Porter" category for the Peak One Porter. In Silverthorne, The Bakers' Brewery scored a silver in the "Beligian-Style Pale Ale" for the Belgian Rebellion. There might be a little friendly rivalry between the Summit breweries, but the camaraderie these brewers share is admirable, and they are also some of the friendliest folks out there. So the next time you see your favorite local brewer, give 'em a pat on the back — or buy them a brew.

'SCIENCE, ADVENTURE, & FUN'

The artists of the co-op gallery Arts Alive in Breckenridge put on a fundraiser once a year for a local nonprofit. This year, the gallery chose Keystone Science School, an organization that teaches scientific principles and leadership skills to young people, teachers and community members through engaging hands-on field experiences. The artists took photographs from the school and created their own artwork from their perceptions of the images. The event on June 11 will help raise money for KSS, and 15 percent of all art sales on that day will go to KSS. The reception will include dishes with an "around-the-world" theme. Tickets can be purchased in advance at keystonescienceschool.com or at the door for $25.
