AURORA – This June, music and brews will come together in a weekendlong celebration of summer during the Two Brothers Brewing Company’s 2014 Two Brothers Summer Festival.

Formerly known as the Two Brothers Hop Juice Festival, the three-day event will take place Friday, June 20, through Sunday, June 22, at Two Brothers Roundhouse, 205 N. Broadway Aurora. Festival hours will be 5 to 11 p.m. June 20; noon to 11 p.m. June 21; and noon to 6 p.m. June 22.

Grammy-winning rock group Los Lobos and singer/song-writer Justin Townes Earle will headline the summer music fest.

Earle and Edward David Anderson will perform June 20; Los Lobos, Cornmeal, Autumn Defence, Kwame Bediako and Kevin Presbrey & the Midwest will perform June 21; and Ralph’s World will perform June 22, with a second act that has yet to be announced.
