Four Awesome Food Events, June 30-July 3: Land of the Cheese, Home of the Donut/Beer Pairing

Legal Draft Beer Company's taproom isn't open yet, but don't let that stop you from trying out Arlington's newest brewery. As their name implies, Legal Draft takes a decidedly magisterial approach to brewing with beer names like Accused Amber Lager, Presumed Innocent IPA and Hung Jury Hefeweizen. Try Legal's five flagship beers at their release party at LUCK. Just don't forget your DD, lest you acquaint yourself with the law in an entirely different manner.
