Noblesville Brewfest & Wine Garden chair Greg Baker views the addition of partner/sponsor Mr. G’s Liquors as a giant boost.
Noblesville residents Myron Glover and Bryan Glover own Mr. G’s Liquors.
“Their contacts and knowledge of the beer and wine industry have already enhanced this year’s event,” Baker said. “We hope his synergistic alliance continues for years to come. Our patrons will see a product offering that surpasses all previous Brewfests.”
The ninth annual event is scheduled from 3 to 7 p.m. Sept. 22 at Forest Park’s Shelter 1 area. The fundraiser, whose premier sponsor is the Noblesville Township Trustee’s Office, benefits Forest Park Aquatic Center.
“This is one of the older beer-tasting events in central Indiana,” said Baker, a member of the Noblesville Adult Swimming Team Inc., based in Forest Park.
The band will be Indianapolis-based Poparazzi, a high-energy group with two female lead singers, Baker said.
The band will play from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.
There are eight new brewers, Half Moon, Moontown, Pax Verum, Field Brewing, Mashcraft, Granite City, Thr3e Wise Men and Primeval, to bring the total to 21, including Ash & Elm, a craft cider company.
Republic National Distributing Center is a new wine supplier.
“They’ll be there with about 60 different wines,” Baker said.
Celtic Pretzel, Noblesville, is a new food vendor.
Baker said the group’s mission is to raise as much money as it can. He said with the summer so short now with students going back to school earlier, the pool isn’t able to pay for itself.
“We need to have outside fundraising sources,” he said.
Baker said the Brewfest has continued to grow each year.
“We’re almost at capacity with 1,500 people in the venue,” Baker said. “We could add another 100 or 200, but we’re about as big as we can get for our current location. We haven’t found anywhere bigger to hold it.”
Four tents and Shelter 1 are available if it rains.
Tickets can be purchased at Mr. G’s in Noblesville, Forest Park Pool Office or online. Admission is $40 in advance and $50 on the day of the event.
