Mark your calendars, beer lovers, an annual tradition is returning to Bismarck. The Downtowners of Bismarck and McQuade Distributing are bringing back Beer and Boutiques, an event that promotes local businesses and beer as part of Downtowners Crazy Days.

The event is set for August 1 between 4:30-8:30 p.m. After purchasing their tickets, participants will receive "Crazy Cash" which can redeemed for beer tastings at 20 participating downtown businesses. In addition to beer sampling and the opportunity to chat with beer experts, each location will have prizes, as well as any deals they choose to run during the event. A grand prize will be up for grabs for participants who visit all 20 locations during the event.

Proceeds from the event will support the Downtown Bismarck Community Foundation 501c3 and the Bismarck Cancer Center 501c3 nonprofits. Earlybird tickcets are $40 or you can purchase a $50 ticket and donate an additional $10 to the Bismarck Cancer Center.
