Craft beer breweries throughout the area came together Saturday, Oct. 19, to support local parks at the third annual “Pours for Parks” craft beer tasting.

Funds from the event, held at the Founders Community Center in Frankfort, will benefit Operation Playground, a Frankfort-based nonprofit organization founded in 2010 that creates various park projects in the community.
