The fun

We are excited to provide guests with fantastic entertainment, games, photo booth, dancing, delicious food and brewing seminars!


SEMINARS

The seminars this year will be a little different than in years past. We'll be focusing on fermented foods and how their complex flavors pair with our favorite fermented beverage. We'll discuss the process of the food fermentations and the microbes involved and how the different flavors are produced as a result of the fermentations. Then we'll provide tasting samples of the food paired with selected Ivory Tower beer samples for a symphony of sumptuous flavors.

Stay tuned for the specific fermented foods that will be showcased in each seminar!

Naked gods

Naked Gods are a five piece rock and roll band hailing from Boone. As a unit the band combines the influences of big, noisy guitar indie rock, abstract bass warbling, frenzied drum bursts & vocals capturing the sensitivity & sentimentality of youth lost & found, delivered with swagger by one of the burliest guys you’ve ever seen. 

The band includes Chris Hutelmyer, Brian Knox, Seth Sullivan, and Derek Wildcat.

The band has been on a musical journey for years now, tirelessly experimenting with song craft, structures, textures, moods & home recording techniques, all the while garnering a growing reputation for their wild stage shows in & around the region.
