Deer Park Irish Pub to Host 8th Annual Craft Beer Festival Saturday, September 30, 2017 1 – 5 pm Deer Park Irish Pub Spring St. and Leesburg Rd. ($25 advance/$35 Day of Event) Proceeds go to Miss Virginia’s Food Pantry FORT WAYNE, IN – September 30, 2017 – The Deer Park Irish Pub will be hosting its eighth annual Craft Beer Festival, Saturday, September 30, 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 seven 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 100 craft and home brews… they’ll think they have died and gone to beer heaven.”
Among the dozens of well-known micro-brews in attendance will be Fort Wayne's Newest brewery Hop River, as well as, Mad Anthony's, Rhinegeist, Taxman, and many more...Henry says. This year, it appears, many Home Brewers from Fort Wayne's MASH club are coming out of their garages to bring their very own hand crafted beers.
There will also be fresh burgers, 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 and over, but pets are welcome to accompany their owners. 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.”
