SWIRCA & More BrewFest

Every year SWIRCA hosts BrewFest, it's an annual fundraiser for SWIRCA so it's a great way to get out and enjoy some brews, while also supporting a good cause. SWIRCA's mission is:

Enhancing opportunities for independent living and a better quality of life for those who are aging, people living with disabilities, and caregivers in Southwestern Indiana.

BrewFest is one of my favorite annual events because it's so much fun. There are dozens of breweries, wineries, and distilleries that set up and let you sample what they have. You get a commemorative glass that you take around and samples are poured into it.  It's a great way to try out several regional ales and wines all in one place.


BrewFest 2023 Date & Location

Last year BrewFest had a new location on the lawn of the West Franklin Street library, and this year will be no different.  The 19th annual SWIRCA & More BrewFest will take place on September 16th from 6 PM to 9 PM.

I was a little apprehensive in 2022 about the new location, I wasn't sure how it would work out logistically, but they really pulled it off! The setup was really nice because it spread the booths out enough that you could find less crowded areas to start your tastings.  There also was plenty of space to sit down and eat, and there were several food trucks there to choose from.


Tickets for BrewFest 2023 are on sale now through the SWIRCA website.
