Beer-drinking backyard bashers, prepare to be bummed: There will be no Backyard Bash at Summit Brewery this year.

Summit in St. Paul has decided to take a year off from the popular Backyard Bash celebration. Citing a busy year of expansion and remodeling, the brewery felt it best to allocate its resources toward the business needs instead of throwing a 28th anniversary party. Business over partying? What fresh hell is this?
