Mark your calendars: NABC's Fringe Fest to provide downtown counterpoint to Harvest Homecoming, Oct. 9-11.

As the New Albanian Brewing Company continues to work toward the opening of its second location at 415 Bank Street in downtown New Albany (open winter ‘08/’09), we’re planning outdoor fun to coincide with the city’s annual Harvest Homecoming celebration: NABC’s Fringe Fest 2008: Harvest Culture on the Skids, showcasing craft beer, food, music, art and film from Thursday, October 9 through Saturday, October 11.

The goal of this first annual Fringe Fest is to create a cultural counterpoint to Harvest Homecoming and provide unique music, interesting exhibits, captivating films, and – most importantly – good beer. Fringe Fest embraces everything creative and original, and welcomes anything outside of the social “norm”.

This year’s line-up includes the Louisville Film Society, the Derby City Roller Girls, and solo performers and bands from Indianapolis, Louisville, and New Albany. Other attractions being planned are a weekend-long art exhibit in the future Bank Street Brewhouse taproom, a beer bus shuttle from Louisville, Beer 101 class with publican Roger A. Baylor, a beer and cheese tasting with Capriole Farms, and a tattoo exhibit.
