Vintage Market, sour beer and a benefit for a fallen friend

Good morning! I've been biking all over the east side for the Thunder Road Marathon. You can follow my fun. In the meantime, here's a little something to plan the rest of your day.

An Acquired Taste - I haven't gotten into the sour beers yet. I tend to lean toward the nutty brown ales. I'm going to try again at Sour Beerfest: Release the Funk 2, 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., Neighborhood Theatre, 511 E. 36th St. More than two dozen breweries are expected to participate. Get tickets here.

BBQ and Quilts - Find an assortment of vintage collectibles and eat delicious pimento cheese, BBQ and more at  2014 Vintage Charlotte Winter Market. Vendors include Ferris Wheel Vintage, the Big White Cat and Olive You More among others. At least seven food trucks including Bleu Barn Bistro, Ooo Wee BBQ and Central Coffee and more. More info.
