It was our first time seeing the Magic Beans who were unbelievable. They did a bluegrass rendition of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Tuesday’s Gone!!! During the show we had many a guests including Todd Thibault, Todd Usry and Matt Eldridge from Breck. They gave us the lowdown on 24 years and the plans moving forward into their new brewery on South Santa Fe.
