Craft beer lovers came in costume to the Brewers of Indiana Guild‘s new fall fundraiser, Broad Ripple Beer Fest, on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at Opti-Park on the north side of Indianapolis in the Broad Ripple neighborhood, home of Indiana’s oldest brewery, Broad Ripple Brewpub.
1,000+ attendees enjoyed trick-or-treating with complimentary 6-pack coolers, and 45+ Hoosier breweries and guests served hundreds of beers in 3 oz. samples in tasters provided by HopCat.
Drinking for good
Thanks to attendees, we were able to donate $3,375 to our charity partner, Asante Children’s Theatre. The Guild gives $3 from every ticket sold to fest charity partners.
Through “Drinko,” ring toss, and keg toss games, an additional $640 was raised for the nonprofit organizations Optimist Club – Friend of Youth, Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault, Alternatives, and Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
