As far as planning a roll out goes, you can’t get much luckier than Surly throwing a party for their new Heat Slayer beer on a weekend full of 100 degree days. The brewery will transform their beer garden into a tribute to the city of Cologne (the inspiration for the new kölsch) with all-you-can-eat German food (including much-needed frozen pops), a commemorative glass, and a continual cooling flow of the Heat Slayer. Hopefully by the time your read this there’s still some tickets left. Sunday, 1-5 PM. $30.Art Humes
