Beer loves unite: Brewfest Fort Wayne is your destination March 9th. According to their website, Brewfest Fort Wayne is an annual beer tasting and silent auction event founded in 2008. It features breweries, restaurants, and distributors who come together to offer a wide variety of craft beers from around Indiana and the region. Admission is $25 in advance, $30 at the door and includes unlimited sampling, souvenir glass, sandwiches and snacks, music, silent auction and tours of the Fort Wayne Masonic Temple, 216 E. Washington Blvd., a building on the National Register of Historic Buildings. Portions of proceeds will be donated for the preservation of this historical building. Unbeknownst to most, the facility is available for rental. Rentals are vital to supporters' ongoing efforts of building preservation and allows them to make many important facility upgrades.
Local and regional breweries, restaurants, vendors, and distributors will be on site to provide the hoppy goodness. That includes the Trion Tavern, the DashIn, Mad Anthony Brewing Company, and Brewer's Art Supply, to name a few. Tickets are on sale at the Freemason’s Hall, the Dash-In and Brewer’s Art Supply.
