Mayflower excitedly opens up the whole brewery for this community-wide event, which is free to attend.

Full band shows throughout the day will feature 90s rock and more with Mini Yellow Witches from 1-4 pm and soulful pop/rock & roll with Gracie Grace and All the Goodboys from 5-8 pm. Jeff Hilliard, a favorite among the local music scene, is no stranger to a solo gig in the Mayflower taproom. But on the 27th, he’s excited to play alongside his bandmates, Mini Yellow Witches. “We love playing at Mayflower. The staff, the people who go there, and just the overall atmosphere of the brewery are very comfortable. One of our first shows as a band was there and we always eagerly look forward to playing at Mayflower. The overall experience is friendly and fun! How could you not love a place with dogs and families all having a blast?! We are so pumped to be rockin’ the cans out of Mayflower on the 27th!” says Jeff.
