The String Cheese Incident's Kyle Hollingsworth is touring to push his new solo release, Then There's Now, but the keyboardist/songwriter isn't just an expert musician. He's also a home brewer, and is teaming up with local breweries along his route for Kyle's Beer Tour.
Although the tour won't hit Colorado until December, on November 11 you can watch a live Brew Tour Webcast (at www.magichat.net/drinkme) from the Magic Hat Brewery in Burlington, Vermont, where the Kyle Hollingsworth Band will be playing at Club Metronome. Then on November 14, the Brew Tour stops at the Khyber in Philadelphia, where Hollingsworth and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery will host a tasting before that evening's show.
On December 12, the Kyle Hollingsworth Band will finally hit Colorado, and Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver. Then on December 13, the Brew Tour will land at the New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins for "Holiday Folly for Charity," a benefit for the Food Bank of Larimer County that features "an intimate performance" by the Kyle Hollingsworth Band. Tickets start at $45, and VIP level includes a tour of the brewery with Hollingsworth.
