BIG Winterfest news ... the show is this Saturday, January 26.

With Winterfest coming this Saturday, here are a few items of importance passed along to us by the executive director of the Brewers of Indiana Guild. My personal favorite is the Online Program link. You can view NABC's lineup here, as well.


Fine Dining, Craft Beer and Jazz!
The Jazz Kitchen is hosting a beer dinner on Thursday, January 24, featuring North Coast Beer. $35 includes a 4-course dinner, beer and gratuity. What a deal! Reservations and info here.

Looking for a place to stay this weekend?
Indy Hostel says they are closest to the State Fairgrounds. For me, "Hostel" brings to mind bunk beds and cots in the attic, but this looks pretty nice (also promises a good deal!). For more info -- Indy Hostel link.

Brewing LEGEND Jack McAuliffe at Winterfest!
Back in the 1970s, Jack McAuliffe opened the first US microbrewery. New Albion Brewing sold hand-crafted beer that sold for the exorbitant price of $1.10 per bottle! Boston Beer Co. has collaborated with Jack to brew a limited-edition New Albion Ale, Jack will be at Winterfest for the first Indiana tapping of this iconic beer. We'll toast Jack as the VIP hour winds down, around 3:45. Listen for the announcement.

Winterfest tickets are really, truly sold out. Sold out in record time two weeks ago. But tickets just went on sale for the Bloomington Craft Beer Festival. B-Fest is 12 weeks away, on April 13. Spread the word on tickets. Here's the link
