Check out the Beer Fest tonight at Mellwood Arts Center. Here are the details:
There’s a free brewfest on Friday, and it’s for a good cause. The Louisville Independent Business Alliance (LIBA) is hosting its second annual brewfest this year at the Mellwood Arts Center. If you attended last year’s fest at the Clifton Center, you might remember a much too crowded house and beer taps that were empty after an hour. The organizers assure me that this year they’ve worked out all the kinks and believe the larger space at Mellwood will keep all the thirsty attendees happy and content. The brewfest is free, but you have to purchase $1 beer sampling tickets at the door. There will also be food and wine … and live music from Midnite Sons, Hand Brigade, Dallas Alice and The Ladybirds. Participating brewers include Bluegrass Brewing Co., BBC Taproom, Cumberland Brews, New Albanian Brewing Company, Browning’s, Falls City Beer, Kentucky Ale and Riverbend Winery. The beer pours from 4-10 p.m., and for more info, go to www.keeplouisvilleweird.com/beer.
