There's a lot more than three reasons to cross the river this weekend - if you are a lover of the libations, that is. You see, this Saturday, Indiana is host to an alcoholic's wonderland. One could make a driving tour of it. Just be sure to find a designated driver. And a time machine or some sort of teleporter wouldn't hurt, either. These events are all on Saturday and all looks spectacular.
1. Start off in Clarksville, Indiana for the Keg Liquors Fest of Ale (3-7pm). Don't be put off by the fact that this event is put on by a Keg Liquors, or that it's happening in the wasteland that is Clarksville. Even wastelands can have their moment of glory, and I suspect that this one is it. Over 150 craft and import beers, and even four wine distributors? That is all kinds of win.
2. Head up north to Bloomington, Indiana for Radfest. Oh yes. The Upland Brewing Company hosts this annual celebration of beers and "mind blowing music." (5-11pm)
3. But if beer's not your thing, many local wineries will be up north in Indianapolis for Vintage Indiana. From 11am-7pm in Military Park, wine will flow, music will play, and food will abound. Local artists will display there wares, and various groups will be giving demonstrations. You can also pick up your new passport for another round of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail.
So many choices. What to do, what to do? Now where did I park that teleporter?
