‘Hop’ to it Friday; Spring Street shops to host beer tasting event, by David A. Mann (News and Tribune).
Jeffersonville’s Main Street Inc. is betting that sips of suds will bring shoppers to Spring Street.
The organization’s inaugural “Hops & Shops” — a beer-tasting event — is scheduled between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Friday. Several regional brewers will set up tasting areas inside Spring Street shops. A few area wineries also are participating.
Residents pay $15 in advance or $20 the day of the event to register, get a wristband that identifies them as being more than 21 years old and can visit each shop for a sample. The cost covers all drinks and appetizers that will be served. Live music will be played at several spots along the street.

This is a great idea, with participating breweries to include Upland Brewing Co., Bluegrass Brewing Co., Cumberland Brewing Co. and my own New Albanian Brewing Co. Follow the link to read the whole article.
