No sooner does Craft Beer Week end, than the 7th Annual Brewfest begins Friday, Sept. 25, 4-10 p.m. at Slugger Field, 401 E. Main St. The event, sponsored by Louisville Independent Business Alliance (LIBA),  will feature independent local and regional beer, wine and bourbon, as well as food vendors and a silent auction.

But, if you go to the Brewfest web page,   you will see all the other cool stuff going on, such as pre-party specials at all BoomBozz Pizza & Taphouse locations, Manny & Merle’s & Joella’s Hot Chicken, offered on Tuesday, Sept. 22; the news that Mayor Fischer and Ben Sollee worked with Goodwood Brewing and Apocalypse Brew Works respectively, to concoct personal beer statements (an Irish stout from Hizzoner, and an Oktoberfest from Sollee); info about the Brewseum, a self-directed journey through the history of craft beer in Louisville located on the Overlook Deck within the ballpark.
