TACOMA PREFUNK SUNDAY, JULY 30 2017: Fort George Sucker Punch and world music

PREFUNK: Kettle souring involves cooking the grist, but then allowing it to cool in the brew kettle where lactobacillus, bacteria found in foods such as yogurt, cheese and sauerkraut, is introduced. After one to two days, the mash becomes sour and then the brewing process is restarted with enough heat to kill the bacteria, but leave a distinctive acidic tartness. Fort George Brewery perfected the process with its Sucker Punch Kettle Sour. It’s a thirst quenching sour with an in-your-face lemon-lime zestiness. Made with non-intrusive hops and malts, this tart drink screams summer. Peaks and Pints Has a Sucker Punch waiting for you. Peaks and Pints, Tacoma

3-11 P.M. REGGAE ON THE WAY: Contrary to what the heat might have you hallucinating, unfortunately, we do not live in the tropics; but with the Clear Choice and Airport Tavern’s Reggae on The Way, you can at least pretend for a little while. Kick back and relax at this block party style festival and enjoy the smooth vibrations of Common Kings, Anuhea, Ballyhoo!, Tribal Theory, Stay Grounded, Positive Rising, Ethan Tucker and others, so get those heads a-bobbin’. 54th and South Tacoma Way, Tacoma
