Arts & Drafts Returns to The Brewerie by Alex Bieler

For the past eight years, The Brewerie has played host to numerous creative individuals to provide them a spotlight in the community through Arts & Drafts. From Sept. 4 to 6, the biannual, multi-day event returns to provide locals a chance to indulge in visual and aural treats, as well as enjoying a few craft brews along the way.

“Arts & Drafts is the epitome of the Erie art and music scene,” says bartender Justin Tapper, who’s also the music coordinator of the festival. “We don’t take commission from the artists and try to give it all back to them. It’s what Erie’s scene is all about – getting together to support one another to help people grow and get their names out there.”

Roughly 30 different artists will be on display at The Brewerie over the course of the weekend, presenting displays of visual arts, from paintings to sculptures, that can be purchased or simply perused by event goers each day from noon to midnight. A list of 14 different bands will also perform, with shows starting at 6:30 p.m. each day, including bands like The Mighty Sea in the tap room and East Ave. trackside.

While you’re enjoying all of the art on Brewerie premises, don’t forget to cool down with some tasty beers brewed also on premise. Entrance is free before 8 p.m. and a donation of $3 is required afterwards, but it’s a small price to pay for a convenient congregation of some of Erie’s finest creative minds. – Alex Bieler
