by Anna Veltri , Emmetsburg News

KEMB Radio's second annual Keep 'Em Brewing will be held on Saturday, August 12 at Soper Park from 5-10:30 p.m. This Beerfest is a fundraiser to support Emmetsburg's local radio station, KEMB.

Events will start at 5 p.m. with a people's choice beer tasting. There is no admission charge to the event, but to participate in the beer tasting, there is a $10 fee for the tasting glass.

At the tasting event, home-brewers serve their beer for judging. The winner of the "People's Choice" competition will win a $250 prize and an etched growler. The home-brewers participating are not just local, there are entries from across the nation.

Other attractions at Keep 'Em Brewing will include a Beer Garden. At the Beer Garden, all beers will be $4.00. Doll Distributing as well as West O will be providing some of their craft beers for the Beer Garden. Doll Distributing is even providing a brand-new beer that was just released on August 1. Smirnoff Ice will also be available for those that do not drink beer.

Great food will be served at the event; the Palo Alto Cattlemen will be grilling and providing hamburgers for a burger bar. The burger bar will include all your favorite burger toppings for $5. The Cattlemen will also be providing delicious ribeye sandwiches for a cost of $10.

From 5-10:30 p.m. there will be live entertainment. Back by popular request, the Beller'd Yellers will be performing their mix of bluegrass, country, and covers. The Beller'd Yellers are a band from Minneapolis with a local tie to Emmetsburg.
