Beer tasting will be added to Jeffersonville’s barbecue festival this summer, by David A. Mann (News and Tribune)
The city of Jeffersonville just released its schedule for RiverStage — the floating Ohio River venue off Riverside Drive — and 2011’s Smokin’ on the River event is being dubbed a “Barbecue, Blues and Brew Festival.”
The new title is being used as this year’s event will feature a local beer tasting tent, confirmed Sara Schutz, assistant superintendent of special events and RiverStage for the Parks and Recreation Department.
Six local breweries — including New Albanian Brewing Co. and Bluegrass Brewing Co. — are expected to offer two brews each for the tent. Part of the fun will be pairing different beers with the varying takes on barbecue at the event, Schutz said.

Calendar check: "Barbecue, Blues and Brew" in Jeffersonville on June 17 and 18, 2011.
The newly dubbed event takes place on Friday/Saturday, June 17 & 18. I'm working with BBC and World Class Beverages; with luck, there'll be a way to get other Southern Indiana breweries involved.
