Are good beer brewers also good at other things? Assembling cabinets? Teaching the violin? Making love? What about pumpkin carving? We’ll find out about the pumpkin carving tonight as brewers from 612BREW, Fair State, Sociable Cider Werks, and Tin Whiskers face off at Common Roots Cafe. The competition is of course an excuse for you to drink some homegrown beers, and if you bring in a non-perishable food item for Second Harvest Heartland and get $1 off your first beer. 5:30 PM. Free.—Arnold Tolt
