Indiana craft beer lineup and beer events for the RiverRoots Music & Folk Arts Festival in Madison, May 15 & 16.

Yesterday's post detailing NABC's lineup is here.

And so it's time again for RiverRoots, the annual music and folk arts festival held on the banks of the Ohio in Madison. In 2015, the tenth edition of RiverRoots takes place on Friday and Saturday nights, May 15 and 16.

NABC (and Upland) have been selling beer at RiverRoots since the beginning, and in reent years, we've been joined by various of our Hoosier brewing colleagues. For the second year in 2015, the RiverRoots craft beer tent is being sponsored in part by the Brewers of Indiana Guild.

American Craft Beer Week coincides with RiverRoots week, and so on May 12, 13 and 14, three Madison restaurants are staging special pre-RiverRoots beer tasting with participating Indiana craft brewers. See the illustration above for details.

It’s a wonderful tradition to have Hoosier-brewed beers paired with equally great music, and each year, RiverRoots offers a pleasing festival ethos of localism. It’s a testament to the vision of the fest’s founder, the late John Walburn.
