After its opening last week, the HighSide Brewing Company will be celebrating all weekend long at the corner of Summit Boulevard and Main Street in Frisco with a charitable drive, a lineup of special events and contests.

To kick things off, Summit County’s newest brewery will be offering people the opportunity to donate to its Food-Bank Fiesta at 5 p.m. today, and donations of non-perishable food items will come with a free Habanero Lager beer.

“The food bank in Dillon is starving for some serious carbs in their pantry,” according to the brewery. “So bring in some non-perishable pasta or other tasty carb meals and get ready to toot your gluten-horn with a free beer in the taproom.”

Also today, at 5:30 p.m. HighSide will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony with cake at 5:30 p.m. Friday, and 30 minutes later, head brewer Dave Simmons and Jon Zatkoff are scheduled to participate in a Q&A.

People may also donate rafting photos to be hung in the Tap Room. Beyond that, HighSide is holding a weekend-long photo contest and will be awarding the people who turn in the best shots in a number of different categories, including most creative, best dog with beer, best smile, best gratuitous use of HighSide’s logo in a photo, best photo bomb, and best rabbit ears. To enter, people must post their shots on Instagram, using the hashtag, #highsidebrewing. Winners will receive free beer and swag.

To close out tonight, Frisco Funk Collective Band will play from 8-10:30 p.m.

On Saturday, HighSide will be having a three-time raffle, and people will get one ticket with each beer purchase. Also, Ken Lee Music Bluegrass Band will have a jam session from 7-9 p.m.

On Sunday, there will be another three-time raffle and the band Dream Feed will have its Jam session from 7-10 p.m.
