 Brewfest Pre Party!
All BoomBozz Pizza & Taphouse locations,
Manny & Merle's & Joella's Hot Chicken.
Tuesday, 9/22/15

Enjoy $2 Goodwood pints and your chance to win 2 Brewfest packages (including admission, 20 food tickets and 2 commemorative pint glasses) at each location!

Be sure to visit the Brewseum at the Brewfest. It's a self-directed journey through the history of craft beer in Louisville, supported by demos and a ‘how-to’ area. See the impact that local beer has had on the Louisville community over the years. The Brewseum will be located on the Overlook Deck within the ballpark.

Make Your Mark At Brewfest

We'll be making a local beer/wine/bourbon art piece, and we need your help. Come to the Keep Louisville Weird booth and glue bottle caps and other items (that we'll provide) on this weird tribute to our locals.
