What is it with June beer festivals in this area?
June 2 saw Fest of Ale and Tap ‘N’ Run, and now, on the 22nd, the Louisville Independent Business Alliance (LIBA) will host the its fourth-annual Louisville Brewfest, only this time it’ll be at Louisville Slugger Field, 401 E. Main St., rather than the Mellwood Arts Center, which it quickly outgrew.
According to a news release, the event is presented by Kentucky Proud and will run from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The event will feature beers from the following breweries:
- Against the Grain
- Apocalypse Brew Works
- BBC Tap Room
- Bluegrass Brewing Company
- Cumberland Brewery
- Falls City Beer
- Kentucky Ale
- The New Albanian Brewing Company
Some breweries plan to introduce new brews at the event—cool!
Attendees can also enjoy giveaways, a silent auction and live music from local bands Supertruck, Flyswatters and more.
Admission is free, but attendees must be 21 and older to purchase a $2 souvenir cup and enjoy the beer and wine. Safe rides home will be provided by City Scoot after 8 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased at the door for $1 each, redeemable for food and beer (i.e. 3 tickets = 1 full beer or wine). LIBA will also unveil and distribute the new 2012 Summer Directory at the event, which is full of information and coupons that encourage consumers to buy local.
“This event allows us to celebrate the things that make Louisville unique, and our local breweries and wineries are a big part of that,” LIBA president Summer Auerbach said in the release. “You can’t find these businesses anywhere else in the world, and sharing a locally made drink with friends is an excellent way to build community.”
