Highlights of the additions and features from last year’s festival:

  • More space, more restrooms and a couple HUMONGOUS Tent in front of the hangar, PLUS OTHER TENTS with more fun!
  • NEW for 2019 – Louisville’s HOP CAT is brewing up something special and will be a feature at Tailspin Ale Fest. We hear they’re bringing some bites too!
  • VIP’s received a different tasting glass than General Admission for the 5 Year Anniversary. This is the same for 2019.
  • VIP’s received a Boulevard Brewing Company Tailspin Ale Fest 12 Pack Cooler bag as their gift. 2019 We’ll keep you extra warm with a scarf from Bell’s Brewery and Tailspin Ale Fest.
  • Drake’s Silent Disco! People danced like no one was watching or LISTENING! We can’t promise the Nappy Roots will make an impromptu appearance again to perform along with the DJ, but you never know…. Also located in the Silent Disco was four featured brews handpicked by Drake’s.
  • The Bourbon Barrel Beer Bar was a popular spot. For 2019 it has a dedicated tent, with 10 taps flowing at all times and a cue line for quick service.
  • Cider and Sour Bar will be back again! Pucker up!
  • LAGERS Homebrew Pro-Am competition brought us “Gimme S’more” a marshmellow dunkelweizen.  The Official Tailspin Ale was brewed in partnership with Apocalypse Beer Works. For 2019,  we have “Coocoo for Coconuts!” who’s nuts for Coconut and Chocolate?!
