8th Wonder 4th Annual Celebr8ion of Beer

This weekend might be one of the busiest of the year with the rodeo, Saint Patrick’s Day, and March Madness. The main attraction on Saturday, March 18th, is on the Eastside, where 8th Wonder Brewery will be holding their annual brewed-up music festival for their 4th anniversary.

We chatted with 8th Wonder president and co-founder Ryan Soroka ahead of the celebration and he gave us a little insight into what to expect at the party. First, the beer: they’re releasing Coltsch Forty5, IP8 (an IPA dry-hopped with Citra and Cascade), and re-releasing BrewGK, a candy apple ale collaboration with Bun B.

Soroka said 8th Wonder has added capacity recently, both to keep up with local demand and to make room for seasonals and one-offs.

On the music side, Soroka said they worked closely with Mark Austin, who books and manages a number of local and regional artists. The headliners are Dumpstaphunk, the most recent band featuring the legendary Neville brothers, and Austin’s weirdly wonderful White Denim.

“We’re always excited to celebrate with our friends, family, and fans,” Soroka said.

8th Wonder has put on a hell of a party year after year. I encourage everyone to head out to EaDo and enjoy a few beers with them.

There are still a few tickets available:
