Locally-owned The Brewers Tap Room features the best of purely independent San Diego craft beer—now they are venturing into the world of fine art as well. The Encinitas taproom held its first-ever art show with 8:61 PM art collective on April 6 featuring the photographs of local artists Luke Duncan,Garret Hill and Ian White.

The event had the taproom at max capacity and many of the pieces were sold. The photographs will remain up on display and the next art show is planned for May 4.
