BBC's Hop & Harvest Festival coming on Saturday, September 26.

Saturday, September 26 is the second annual Hop & Harvest Festival at Bluegrass Brewing Company at 3929 Shelbyville Road, Louisville. Starting time is 5:00 p.m., and the Courier's Steve Coomes previews the event here.

The festival is designed to showcase locally grown hops (BBC's owners, the Hagans, grow hops at their Indiana farm), and to support local farmers. Accordingly, there'll be a farmer's market in the BBC parking lot featuring local beef, chicken, produce, flowers, jams, jellies, houseplants, live on-site blanket weaving, and more.

There'll be Louisville metro beer from both BBC breweries, Browning's, Cumberland and New Albanian, and wine from unidentified area wineries. Music begin at 7:00 p.m. with Stonewheel, and admission is free, although BBC is asking for a donation of three cans of food to help Kentucky Harvest.

Questions? Ask Melissa.
