Gravity Head (Feb. 24 to mid-March)
New Albanian Brewing Co.’s publican, Roger Baylor, assembles the finest list of high-alcohol beers from around the globe. Drink responsibly — or at least save a few dollars for a taxi. 
 
Rocky’s Sub Pub’s Craft Beer Extravaganza (April 21)  
This family-friendly fifth-annual event doubles as a great place to view Thunder Over Louisville. Getting buzzed while military aircrafts buzz overhead is a far cry from smuggling hooch onto the Great Lawn. 
 
While primarily a festival showcasing Southern Indiana wines, this Memorial Day weekend party in historic Corydon, Ind., also features plenty of local beers.
 
Buy Local First Fair (May 20)
All-you-can-drink stoneware mug filled with local potables at the Water Tower. 
 
This seventh-annual benefit for the Crusade for Children features more than 40 breweries and three craft-beer distributors at St. Anthony’s of Padua Church in Clarksville, Ind. 
Louisville Independent Business Alliance Brewfest (June)  Keeping Louisville weird with thousands of people…and a few kegs. You do the math. 
 
Brew at the Zoo (August 25)
Lagers, porters and stouts — oh, my! This event gives the animals a chance to watch people doing silly things. 
 
German-American Club Oktoberfest (September 21 & 22)  
The prices are the only things not authentic about this Camp Taylor landmark’s Oktoberfest. Pitchers of German beer flow for less than $10. P.S.: Eat the sauerkraut balls and thank us later.
 
NuLu Fest (September 22)
Craft beer. Live music. Enough details?
 
Highlands Beer Festival
(December 1)
Held during Bardstown Road Aglow, you can go inside the craft-beer movement while staying inside ValuMarket in the Mid City Mall. It is December, for crying out loud.
 
Louisville Craft Beer Week 
(Date to be determined)  Celebrate the craft-beer movement with tastings, pairings and beer dinners throughout the area.
