Untapped Blues & Brews is an annual event in Tri-Cities that features the best regional beer and great live music to the Benton Country Fairgrounds the second weekend in May.

It's been five years since I've been there and am looking forward to going again. Here's what it was like when I was there.

What was, once, a one-day event now spans two days. It kicks off May 9 with Blues on the Columbia River at Clover Island. Then it's off to the fairgrounds with live music all day, some great food and, of course, beer -- lots of it! You can try beer from all over the region. Many of these breweries will brew something special just for this event so it'd be worth your while to check it out.
