There’s a lot to do on a June day, my friends. We’d love to list your events. Please submit them on the form on this website or email [email protected]

** Celebrate the second anniversary of Southern Fields Brewing in Campbellton, Fla. on June 11. Danny Aller, co-founder of the Tallahassee Beer Society, offers all the details of the celebration and the brewery in his column in the Tallahassee Democrat. In case you haven’t heard of Campbellton, the brewery “is located in a bit of a no-man’s land 75 miles west of Tallahassee off Highway 231.” The brewery was created in a restored 120-year-old bank building. Very cool! Time for a road trip. The anniversary party will include Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Kendell Marvel, several new beers and a big announcement.
