Welcome to the 3rd Annual Bloomington Craft Beer Week! There are many things going on this week, but the first thing we want to cover is the Bloomington Craft Beer Festival.

When: Saturday, April 13 4-7 pm
Where: Woolery Mill, 2200 Tapp Rd, Bloomington, IN 47403
Cost: General Admission – $35 in advance, $45 at the door
VIP – $50 available online only here.

Three years ago, the Brewers of Indiana Guild, along with support with Bloomington breweries, Upland Brewing Co and Bloomington Brewing Co, started the Bloomington Craft Beer Fest. The intent was to make available festivals at different times of the year, and in different parts of the state, in order to spread the good word of local craft beer to folks who couldn’t make it to Indianapolis for the Microbrewers’ Festival in July or Winterfest in January. We are now celebrating our third year at the Woolery Mill, an old mill that has become a rustic yet comfortable backdrop for this festival.

This festival is for beer enthusiasts of all levels, and we’re happy to enjoy not only the company of our fellow Hoosier breweries, but also our craft brewing friends from other states. Woolery Mill provides not only a great backdrop of enjoying local brews, local musicians, and local foods, but if the weather turns, the majority of the event is inside the mostly enclosed building.

This year also marks the first ever Bloomington Craft Beer Week: a glorious pre-party celebration the week prior to the festival, April 6 – April 13. We’ll be hitting the town, so keep your eyes peeled for the Upland crew to be visiting a bar near you.

Stay tuned at our website, our Facebook page, and our Twitter feed for details on our various Craft Beer Week events, details on beers we’re tapping at the festival, and other surprises we have in store for you. Hope to see you there!
