Drink Indiana Beer. Support Indiana Brewers
Bloomington Craft Beer Festival and the Novel Coronavirus
The Brewers of Indiana Guild has been carefully monitoring the developing situation around the Novel Coronavirus as it relates to Bloomington Craft Beer Festival. We have been following the recommendations and developmentments of the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and state and local governments.
With the most recent developments over the last 24 hours we have made the difficult decision to cancel Bloomington Craft Beer Festival, scheduled for Saturday, April 11th. Although we are saddened by this decision we have decided that this action is in the best interest of our attendees, members, employees and the craft beer community. We are disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to celebrate Indiana Craft Beer with all the amazing fans and family in Bloomington.
Ticket holders will receive an email with refund information within the next couple of days.
While it is heartbreaking to miss the event, the safety and health of our fans, friends, families and community is our primary concern. We hope to be able to see all of you at the 25th Anniversary of Indiana Microbrewers Festival, July 25th. Until then we will do our best to continue to support our members and community through this challenging experience.

The Brewers of Indiana Guild, our member Breweries and Producer Partners believe in building community one pint, or tasting glass, at a time. We routinely partner with our local community to give back and to support other not-for-profit and volunteer organizations. Even small actions may have a big impact! $1 from every Bloomington Craft Beer Festival ticket sold is donated to our local charity partner, Lotus Education & Arts Foundation.
