Bardstown Craft Beer Festival
Next Generation Nelson County presents the 4th Annual Craft Beer Festival, 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Bardstown Farmer's Market Pavilion. Join beer lovers for a tasting of more than 50 domestic and imported craft beers, including seasonal brews and rare releases selected by the breweries that will be featured at the event.
Attendees will receive a commemorative pilsner tasting glass and can dine on local foods from Bardstown's highly regarded Harrison-Smith House as well as food trucks - a new element to this year's festival. The headlining entertainment is the Hogslop String Band, a Nashville-based old-time string band featuring five energetic young musicians from Georgia, Tennessee, California and North Carolina.
The festival has expanded the number of draft trailers in attendance to offer more selections on tap. Also new is the presence of several craft brewers who will join the lineup of local breweries from all over Kentucky.
Tickets: $40/person; $35/person advance purchase tickets. New this year is a special designated driver ticket for $20/person. The festival takes place rain or shine - but tents and the pavilion will keep everyone dry.
