Whitewater, cold beer

Temperatures in the mid- to upper 80s and a 10 percent chance of rain? Looks like a shot at a decent Saturday coming up. If our story on an all-beer menu for Father's Day put you in the brew mood, remember that Saturday is the Brew Stash Bash at the U.S. National Whitewater Center.

That would be an all-day festival with a trail race, live music and craft beer sampling from more than 20 local and national breweries. The 6K Brew Dash begins at 11 a.m. Preregistration is $27 and ends at midnight tonight. Preregistration gets you a slot in the race and a commemorative pint glass.

The actual beer event and festival starts at 1 p.m. on Belmont Abbey Island. Beer tickets are four for $5 and each one gets a 4-ounce sample. Sampling ends at 6 p.m.
