The Deer Park Irish Pub will be hosting its fourth annual Craft Beer Festival, Saturday, October 5th, 1 to 5 p.m. The festival has been organized to provide a forum for nationally-known craft brewers to celebrate their art and tradition with local beer enthusiasts, says Deer Park Pub owner Tony Henry.
"We'll be building on the success of our first three craft beer festivals," Henry says. "Only at our annual craft beer festival will Fort Wayne have so many of the country's finest craft beers tapped in one place, at one time," Henry says. "Craft beer connoisseurs will enjoy four hours of beer tasting from a selection of more than 50 craft and home brews... they'll think they have died and gone to beer heaven."
In addition to the barrels of craft beers, Riegel's Pipe & Tobacco will be hosting a cigar table featuring fine, imported cigars.
Admission to the event is $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Henry said proceeds from the festival will go to the Jerome & Marganelle Henry Foundation for Neighborhood Health Clinics. The foundation helps provide health care to the working poor.
Music will be provided by five bands each providing 1 hour of music covering an assortment of genres.
