If you are purchasing tickets at the event, please note that we cannot take credit cards at the festival. You can always stop by the store the day of the event and pay with a credit card there.
What about designated drivers? Designated drivers are highly encouraged. They get into the festival for free, but do not get to sample any of the beer or wine at the event. If you need a taxi, go to any of the volunteers at the event and we will call a taxi for you.
How much can I drink at the festival? This is NOT a “drink as much as you can in 4 hours” event. Anyone who appears to be intoxicated will be denied additional samples and may be deemed to be in violation of public intoxication statutes. Enjoy what you wish, but please be responsible.
How long is the festival? The festival runs from 3pm to 7pm. Our permit does not allow any pouring after 7pm. Please do not beg, plead, coax, implore, beseech, wheedle, or cajole for more beer.
Do you need volunteers? Every festival needs knowledgeable volunteers for setup, pouring, silent auction, etc. Please contact us at 812-283-3988 to volunteer.
What about children or animals? The event is for 21 and older, so please leave your children at home. Please also leave your pets at home. A beer festival is no place for Fido!
Will there be food available? The St. Anthony's Mens Group will be on hand selling food and soft drinks (and water). All proceeds from their sales goes to the St. Anthony's scholarship fund.
Where can I get the program? This year we've decided to go online with the Fest of Ale program. In the past, we've thrown away 80%-90% of the programs left behind after the Fest, and rather than waste a lot of natural resources on paper programs, we've partnered with the developers of Findmytap.
Their app has a Beer Festival section that allows us to put more information on your phone than we ever could on the printed version. Go to the App Store for iPhones, or Google Play for Android phones and download the free app. At the bottom of the main screen, click on Beer Festivals, then Click on the Fest of Ale Button, and there is your online program.
