UPDATE: We have just posted the beer list for Tailspin Ale Fest.
STOP THE PRESSES! Louisville’s newest beer festival is coming February 22, 2014 to Bowman Field. The Tailspin Ale Fest is the dream of our pal, Tisha Gainey and Trevor Cravens, President of DRAFT Magazine. LouisvilleBeer.com is super stoked about being a sponsor of another great beer festival here in Louisville.
Tisha Gainey tells us:
“This has been one of my visions/dreams to host my own beer festival with all the great people I’ve met in the industry over the past 7 years in my beer related career. I’ve thought about Bowman Field being the perfect location and now it’s coming true. I met Trevor, President of Draft Magazine, a couple years ago at the Louisville Beer Store and ever since have continually ran into him and have developed a business relationship. Trevor/DRAFT has been great partners in my daily career, so I’m very excited to be working with them and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as our Charity. CFF has an overwhelming volunteer base as well as their local office being Craft Beer Enthusiasts. Together we’re pulling together to make this one great festival!”
