The party to celebrate Bristol Brewing Co.'s 20th anniversary rolls on with a pretty awesome event tomorrow betwen 2 and 7 p.m.: Field Day. Rain or shine, folks will find beer pong, strong-arm stein and whatever "beersbee" is. (My favorite sport already, I can tell.)

"Next weekend Bristol will host a Growl Fest, an all new event that features collectors edition subarus from Heuberger Motors," reads a release. "Other events leading into fall include the picking of pumpkins at Venetucci Farm, the release of Venetucci Pumpkin Ale and the Release of the seasonal favorite, Winter Warlock."

And if you miss tomorrow's beer-tastic time, then find the inaugural Bines & Brews Hopfest at Limbach Park in Monument between 1 and 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20.

"Brewers competing for the 'Top Hop Award' traveling trophy must use Cascade hops organically grown in Monument at The Twisted Bine, where they were harvested in late August," reads a statement from the organization. "Grown on bines nearly 18 feet tall, the wet hops are delivered fresh from the field, yielding a more dynamic flavor. Shortly thereafter, brewers host hop-picking parties, as the hops must be individually picked from the bines, while still fresh."

350 tickets at $30 each will be sold. Participating breweries include Red Leg, Smiling Toad, Nano 108, Pikes Peak Brewing, Fieldhouse, Lofty and more.
