Star City Brewing Company decided to spread out its five-year anniversary party over four days, which will encompass special tappings, free music and, yes, pie, from Wednesday, Nov. 14 through Saturday, Nov. 17 at the brewery at 319 S. 2nd St. in Miamisburg.

“The idea started with tapping our barrel-aged beers and bringing back the meads for the anniversary weekend,” Justin Kohnen, co-founder of Star City, said in a release. “But thinking about all of the great things that have helped to make Star City what it is over these five years later, we quickly started filling up the week by roping in friends.”
