Kelsey Creek Brewing in K’ville is gonna have a busy week, starting today, Tuesday from 3 to 6:00 when Buskin’ for Brewskis throws out some tunes while the excellent handcrafted beers, ales and seltzers magically pour into glasses – the perfect symbiosis… It’s always a fun party on Tuesday afternoon… Then on Friday everybody’s favorite psychoramic band, Groovy Judy will remind all of you that the ‘60s actually did happen, (please stay away from the brown acid), starting at 4:00.
