The Montana Brewers Association is holding its annual Solstice Rendezvous on Friday in Billings, the group’s first festival in town in three years.  There’s a VIP hour at 4 p.m. at the Billings Depot, followed by general admission from 5 to 9 p.m.  The event features Montana-made beers from across the state, including several of the 36 brews that won medals at the North American Beer Awards this month.
Twenty-three breweries statewide will be at the festival, including Canyon Creek, Uberbrew, Thirsty Street of Billings and Red Lodge Ales.  Musical entertainment will be provided by the John Floridis Trio and Shakewell, a Missoula-based band
