  • 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 24-25, Julius M. Kleiner Park, 1900 N. Records Ave., Meridian. $35 per day or $60 for two-day pass, at the gate. 888-7668, barleybros.net.

Hops and barley will be the guests of honor this weekend at Meridian’s Julius M. Kleiner Park. The Barley Bros. Traveling Beer Show — aka the Treasure Valley’s largest annual brew festival — will take over the grassy gathering place. Two important words here: Pace yourself. It’s an all-you-can-drink affair after you pay $35 for a wristband, and some of these beers are no joke when it comes to alcohol potency. In addition to around a trillion flavors and styles of craft brew, festivalgoers will enjoy live music, home brewing demonstrations, delectable food and, of course, chatty company.
