There'll be good beer at New Albany's Riverfront Independence Day Celebration on Sunday, July 3.

In a tradition started by former mayor Doug England, the city of New Albany celebrates Independence Day on July 3, not July 4, with a concert and fireworks at the Riverfront Amphitheater.

I mention this not because I'm particularly patriotic in any conventional sense, but because you deserve to know what sort of beer to expect.

The news is good.

All of New Albany's breweries will be present and pouring (Donum Dei, Floyd County Brewing Company and NABC). Big Four Burgers + Beer (the beer garden permittee) has the mass market concession, and wine will be served by River City Winery.

Here's the link.

Riverfront Independence Day Celebration

The Riverfront Independence Day Celebration will be on Sunday, July 3 at the scenic Riverfront Amphitheater. The event begins at 6pm. This year's lineup includes the local favorite country music act Wildwood and the always entertaining Louisville Crashers. So grab a lawn chair or a blanket and come join us for a wonderful night of family-fun along the Ohio River.

Now that I'm no longer involved with NABC, perhaps city employees will switch back to real beer from their preferred Bud Light.
