Sustainable Brewery Tour: Rising Silo

We’ll take a behind the scenes tour and learn about all of the decision making that goes in to creating some of Blacksburg’s favorite brews. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase. Feel free to hang out after the brew tour and enjoy the sounds of local favorite Clover Hollow.
Time: 5-6 p.m.
The Last Plastic Straw Campaign
Every day in the U.S., people use 500 million straws a day – enough to circle to planet more than two-and-a-half times! Straws are now one of the top 10 marine debris items found on our beaches. And by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
Throughout the week we will be celebrating businesses who have pledged to lessen their straw use in 2018 and announcing new establishments that join us in ‘The Last Plastic Straw Blacksburg Restaurant Campaign’ to reduce community and global straw use.
