The Southern Indiana Craft Beer Showcase is what we're calling NABC's Louisville Craft Beer Event on Saturday, September 22. The fundamental idea is to feature Southern Indiana craft beers, as well as craft ciders, meads and wines. In a few instances, we've looked past Southern Indiana in sourcing, but all the beer, ciders, meads and wine on hand will be from independent, artisanal producers.
The showcase will take place at Lloyd’s Landing, Bank Street Brewhouse’s new beer garden at 415 Bank Street, which currently is under conception and construction, but usable. Participating breweries, cideries, meaderies and wineries are selecting one or two examples of their craft, which will be available on a "cash bar" basis as full-size pours. There is no admission fee. The day is intended to be educational and informal, and in addition to the showcase, there'll be the 1st Annual New Albany Indie Fest. The Indie Fest will feature local artists, food and exhibitors, and the music stage will be positioned opposite Lloyd's Landing, providing day-long serenades.
Distilled spirits will also be on hand: Menu and details for the Willett Bourbon Tasting and Bourbon Dinner at Bank Street Brewhouse on Saturday, September 22. Bank Street Brewhouse will be open for dining on the 22nd, subject to available seats.
