Microbrew Festival 

When: Sat., Aug. 13, 3-9 p.m. 2011
Kansas City's chapter of the Italian-American service organization UNICO (unity, neighborliness, integrity, charity, opportunity) was chartered in 1949, and its motto remains "service above self." One of its fundraisers is the Microbrew Festival, a summertime beer-tasting extravaganza at Zona Rosa (8640 North Dixson Avenue). "The money raised helps fund our scholarship program, which awards over $50,000 each year," says Michael Mange, the chapter's president. "With the brewfest being our second-largest fundraiser, behind Festa Italiana, it is a very important event, which allows us to give away the number of scholarships we do." Help fund a college education by chugging some beer from 3 to 9 p.m. Twenty-three brewers — including Broadway Brewery, O'Fallon, Boulevard and Granite City — pour 4-ounce draws of their handcrafted goodness. Tickets cost $20 in advance or $25 at the gate; each comes with a sampling glass. The soundtrack: local AC/DC tribute band KC/DC. Call 816-587-8180 for tickets.
