While the delta variant’s mucking up many of of our indoor entertainment plans, here’s an event for those still navigating outdoor gatherings. Stone’s Throw Brewing celebrates eight years of brewing beer with its annual Block on Rock festival Sat., July 31, 4-10 p.m., a brewery birthday bash benefiting Preserve Arkansas.

General admission is $3 advance and $5 on the day of the event. On stage are Cora McCullen (5 p.m.), Brian Nahlen (5:45 p.m.) and the Big Dam Horns (6:45 p.m.), and there’s an afterparty at Fassler Hall (10 p.m.) The first 250 in the gate get a custom commemorative pint glass koozie. VIP tickets ($70-$80) cover all your beer/cider for the day, hors d’oeuvres from Distant Relatives Cuisine, access to an indoor bar & restrooms, and a Block on Rock goodie bag.
