(McCordsville), Books & Brews (Indianapolis), Salt Creek Brewery (Bedford), Powerhouse Brewing Co. (Columbus), and more! Each brewery is bringing three or more of their best beverages for attendees to sample. Additionally, representatives from many of the breweries will be on hand to meet their fans.

Bands providing entertainment are Alex Williams (from Williams and Co) and James Kramer. These two acts will be sure to keep the audience entertained while they sample beer and enjoy food throughout the evening.

The General Admission offering ($10) includes admission and unlimited samples from brewers. Food, dessert, soft drinks, and a VIP upgrade are available for an additional cost at the event center. Attendees must be 21 years of age or older to attend.
