Deer Park Irish Pub to host 9th annual Craft Beer Festival

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Sept, 2019 – The Deer Park Irish Pub will be hosting its ninth annual Craft Beer Festival, Saturday, October 12th, 1 to 5 p.m. The festival has been organized to provide a forum for nationally-known craft brewers to celebrate their art and tradition with local beer enthusiasts, says Deer Park Pub owner Tony Henry.
“We’ll be building on the success of our first eight craft beer festivals,” Henry says. “Only at our annual craft beer festival will Fort Wayne have so many of the country’s finest craft beers tapped in one place, at one time,” Henry says. “Craft beer connoisseurs will enjoy four hours of beer tasting from a selection of more than 50 craft and home brews… they’ll think they have died and gone to beer heaven.”

Among the dozens of well-known (if not aptly named) micro-brewers on tap will be “Bottle Logic,” “Bare Hands,” “Windmill Brewing,” and “450 North,” Henry says. There will be dozens of microbreweries represented including Bell’s Brewery of Kalamazoo, MI.; Bloomington, Indiana’s Upland Brewery; Sierra Nevada Brewery of Chico, California, and many more. This year, it appears, many Home Brewers from the Huntington Beer Collective and other groups are coming out of their garages to bring their hand craft beers.

There will also be fresh, German brats and signature Bush’s® baked beans available for purchase.
In addition, Riegel’s Pipe & Tobacco will be hosting a cigar table featuring fine, imported cigars.

“After all,” Henry quips, “what better way to complement a fine craft beer than with a good imported
cigar?”

Admission to the event is $25 in advance or $35 at the door. Those in attendance must be 21. Henry said proceeds from the festival will go to the Miss. Virginia Food Pantry. The pantry provides food for the working poor and unemployed.
Music will be provided by “Swimming Into View .”
Tickets are available at the Deer Park Irish Pub, or online.
