Celebrate the solstice at Boatyard
Winter Solstice celebration at Boatyard Brewery.

At sunset on Dec. 21, candles will light Boatyard Brewing Co. for its Winter Solstice Celebration, when you can raise a glass to toast either the longest night of the year or the fact that the days will only get longer from then on out.

The brewery is located at 432 E. Paterson St., and the event runs from 5–11 p.m. Admission is free, but the beer is not.
