Mark Your Calendars for Valpo Brewfest on September 30th

Another fun annual event hits Valparaiso at the end of the month – the yearly Valpo Brewfest. On Saturday, September 30th from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Valparaiso natives as well as visitors from all over Indiana will head to Central Park Plaza. This event is one of the most highly anticipated in Valparaiso, and brings people together for a chance to try new craft beers, meet new people and enjoy a day of community fun.

This event is a craft beer fan’s mecca, with a chance to check out a wide range of craft beer. This year, there is expected to be more than 200 styles of beers to sample. In addition to beer sampling, there will be live entertainment, food, and much more to enjoy.

Brewfest offers beer from America’s top craft brewers, as well as plenty of local beers to try. One of the best parts of the annual Brewfest is that you can help select the local craft beer of the year. Those in attendance get to make their opinion known by voting for the favorite Indiana craft beer. This leads to the crowning of the coveted “HOOSIER BREW” award to the craft beer that receives the most votes.
