Friends of Downtown is proud to present the 2nd Annual Beers Across the Wabash. Join us for a fantastic afternoon of sampling craft brews from 25-30 of Indiana's finest small breweries. The event will be held on the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge spanning the Wabash River between Lafayette and West Lafayette- probably the most scenic beer festival location in all of the Midwest! In addition to delicious beers, admission includes a commemorative sample cup and live entertainment by Woodstove Flapjacks and others throughout the afternoon. Look for homebrewing information and demonstrations from Tippecanoe Homebrewers Circle and Homebrewing Organization of Purdue Students. On-site foodservice will also be available for purchase from D&R Catering; Outpost Catering by Sgt. Prestons and The Lafayette Optimist Club.
