Beer, wine and music festival news from French Lick.

If you’re reading this from afar, there’ll be something vaguely giggly about French Lick, Indiana. Sports fans will remember the small town as the home of the “Hick from French Lick”, hall-of-fame hoopster Larry Bird.

In olden times, circa America's puritanical Prohibition era, French Lick was a renowned regional center for, err, passive resistance to the homegrown Ayatollahs. The grand buildings of the resort slowly deteriorated, but recently the state approved a gaming license, and a massive renovation project ensued. The result is the French Lick Resort Casino, and the pretext for this digression:

Upland Brewing Company and French Lick Resort Casino have paired up to present the first annual “Great Licks Craft Beer, Wine & Music Festival” from noon – 11pm on Friday & Saturday, May 11-12, 2007.

You’ll find complete details at the French Lick Casino & Resort web site.
