Tickets are on sale now for the 2nd Annual Bloomington Craft Beer Festival on Saturday June 9th. The Brewer’s Guild of Indiana have organized over 100 craft beers for sampling at the Historic Woolery Stone Mill. Tickets range from $30 advance tickets, $40 at the gate, and $50 for VIP tickets (limited to E-Ticket purchases). Parking at the mill is limited and costs $10, but a free shuttle service will be provided from designated pick-up and drop-off locations.
Thinking of taking a road trip and hitting up a few breweries along the way? Use the Brewer’s Guild of Indiana’s My Tour web application. The app allows you to add locations based off of the brewery name or a beer that brewery makes. It creates a customized map with brewery addresses and phone numbers to help you visualize your trip!
I’ve been scouring the Brewers of Indiana Guild page for more information on which brewers are participating in Winterfest 2012 with no luck. Thankfully Hoosier Beer Geek got a hold of the layout for this weekend. This year looks pretty solid! There will be some relatively new faces in the crowd with Black Swan, Triton, and Thr3e Wise Men joining the list. Can’t wait to see what Founders, Bier, and Three Floyds bring to the table. Great Fermentations has a booth, and there will also be an area setup for Homebrewer’s Clubs. Looks like a great line-up. BIMPers of the World UNITE!
This year Winterfest 2012 offers over a 150 beers from 50+ breweries. If you’re looking to try staple brews from some of America’s top breweries, or sample something unique and hard to find, this is the place to be. Some breweries that turned my head last year were Founders, Dark Horse, and Bier Brewery. Hope to see you guys there!
