Lawrence Beer Company has planned an all-ages street party to celebrate its fifth anniversary in East Lawrence.

It’s also “a celebration of all that we as a community have made it through during the last couple years,” Matt Williams, president and co-founder of LBC, said in a news release. “It was important to us that we provide a free, all ages event to thank our friends, neighbors, and everyone who has been so unbelievably supportive throughout the pandemic and really since we opened in 2017.”


Events will start at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 3 in the 800 block of Pennsylvania Street, which will be closed to traffic.

First up is a street yoga session from VIBE. It is free, but please register at this link and bring your own mat.

The restaurant will open with full service at 11 a.m. Starting at 4 p.m., they’ll transition to a “shortened party food menu that combines some current offerings and favorites from the past (kimchi fries and walking tacos, anyone?)”

“The event will also include prizes, multiple beer releases, and limited edition merch from Lawrence Beer Co.,” according to the news release. And local vendors on-site will include G’s Jamaican Cuisine, Kona Ice, and Happy Hatters Custom Hats.

From 2 to 5 p.m., Sunflower Outdoor & Bike Shop will host a disc golf challenge.

Live music will start at 6:30 p.m. Kansas City indie rock band Hembree will headline the event, with support from Lucas Parker Band + Jessica Paige, of Lawrence.

“All we ever wanted to be was a community focused neighborhood brewpub, and we wouldn’t still be here if it weren’t for the support we’ve received from the community over the past five years,” Williams said. “After not being able to throw a street party since 2019, this a chance for everyone to let loose and celebrate being part of the LBC family.”
