(Updated 07/24 ... additions in green ... and to Karl, yes, I'm checking into it)
It’s never too early to begin planning our annual draft festivals, so here are the lists so far for the next three big events. These beers either have been ordered or already are in stock.
Of course, there’ll be many more before we’re through … but after all, the foraging has only just begun.
Lupulin Land Harvest Hop Festival 2006
We’ll be exceeding OSHA’s legal limits on IBU’s per square foot of floor space when Lupulin Land 2006 begins on Friday, October 13. It is our fifth harvest hop celebration, and a good occasion for Kentuckiana’s hopheads to unite over a pint or two of America’s most bitter beer. Residents of New Albany should note that the Harvest Homecoming Parade takes place on the previous Saturday (October 7), and Booth Days run from the 12th through the 15th.
