Keg Cowboy, the Lexington bar that boasts “no crap on tap,” is hosting its first craft beer festival.
Keg Fest will be Saturday, Nov. 18, rain or shine, at the Icehouse Amphitheater in Lexington.
The event features food trucks, live music and beer from at least 20 breweries.
Also performing will be the Kenny George Band, a “ragtag” group from Aiken who cite Americana, outlaw country and country-rock crossover as their inspiration. (They say the South Carolina Music Guide named them one of five Artists to Watch last year.)
Country not your thing? Don’t worry. DJ Rell rounds out the performer list.
