Here's a health tip: Avoid corporate compost and favor the homegrown, backyard variety. It's easy to quality control the ingredients when they come out of your own kitchen and the process can even be fun. In fact, it might save your life. According to a 2015 study at the University of Strathclyde Glasgow, more than 50 percent of the 22 U.K. brands of commercial compost tested were found to contain the deadly legionella bacteria. So stay healthy and brew your own. Or just sidestep the matter entirely and grab a brew with The Compost Mountain Boys when they play a lively, free bluegrass set at the Mad River Brewery Tasting Room this evening at 6 p.m.
Also tonight at 9:30 p.m., it's a free show at The Jam with local bands Dimboi, Ms. God and Frog making their debuts, featuring the talented Kyra Teevan on drums. Pints are half off so get beery and make merry.
