Along with live music, The Bash includes "up to four hours of craft beer tastings featuring over 100 craft beers, including some of the best local favorites," and the debut of Rancid's beer, Ska Brewing’s Brewstomper Golden Ale. "I’m looking forward to playing with some of my favorite bands in the world," Tim Armstrong says. "Pennywise, Suicidal Tendencies, L7, and more. We look forward to seeing everyone out at The Bash!"
