Craft Beer Throwdown

This fundraiser and craft beer showdown pits local breweries against each other to find the best new brew in a city full of great new brews. With your $20 ticket, you’re giving money to the Coalition for the Homeless, and you get back a pint glass to sample each competing beer. (Instant karma?) You’ll also get to vote for your favorite sip. Competitors are Gravely Brewing Co. (last year’s victor), Falls City Brewing Co., Goodwood Brewing Co., Against the Grain Brewery, Holsopple Brewing, Mile Wide Beer Co. and Akasha Brewing Co. The evening includes vintage groove pop from Louisville’s Frederick the Younger, yard games, a bourbon pull, a silent auction and dinner and dessert from Moe-licious BBQ and The Comfy Cow.
