Although not one of biggest or best known names in the local beer scene, Venn Brewing consistently impresses us with their diverse-but-dialed-in portfolio of beers—and the routinely bustling atmosphere or their 46th st station. That kind of combo would make a one year anniversary party tough to do in the winter, so Venn has opted to celebrate early summer for their 1.5 year anniversary this weekend with beer specials, music from heiruspecs, Sarah White, Pleezer and others, live shirt printing from Shameless, and a special bottle release of the new imperial sour, COSMOSIS: CLUSTERF*RU!T. Saturday, June 15th, Noon-Midnight. Free. —Art Humes
