Bank Street Brewhouse receives DNA Pillar Award.

I'd like to thank Develop New Albany, our city's non-profit Indiana Main Street organization, for awarding Bank Street Brewhouse a Pillar Award at the annual DNA meeting on Thursday night.

Horizon Award: This category recognizes a new or emerging in existence for five years or less. The award went to the Bank Street Brewhouse.

NABC's original location on the New Albany's north side was determined by chance and serendipity. Bank Street Brewhouse's site downtown was picked because it is downtown, in large measure stemming from ideas and principles that we share with DNA and the Main Street ethos. In my mind, we're using the city as the city was intended, and helping to revitalize it according to urban realities.

The beer and food are the most important aspects, but the street address is a close third.
