Tailspin Ale Fest organizers return once again to present Louisville's best beer fest of the season - Tailspin Ale Fest, February 20, 2016 at Bowman Field in the WWII Era Hangar at Louisville Executive Aviation. Over 50 breweries and a special Kentucky heritage section of Kentucky brews will be available for consumption. View vintage airplanes on display with pin-up girls & fly boys and dine large with some of Louisville's finest food trucks. Magnolia Photo Booth and live music provide ample fun and entertainment.

With over 150 beers available onsite, make sure to sample some great brews from featured breweries: Rhinegeist, Tin Man Brewing Company, New Belgium, Sweetwater Brewing, Founders Brewing and heading up the Kentucky Heritage section, West Sixth Brewing. 
Try Tailspin Ale Fest’s Official Pro-Am Winning Ale – “Mexican Radio,” a collaboration between the LAGERS Homebrew Club & Apocalypse Beer Works.

Event Co-Creator and Organizer, Tisha Gainey states, “We are excited for Tailspin's third anniversary at the historic Bowman Field, bringing our craft beer celebration to the forefront of Louisville's social scene, at least for a day.  It is rewarding to continue our partnership with Liquor Barn and expand on the fundraising efforts for Dare to Care Food Bank.  We are also excited that our event continues to create new opportunities for furthering our fundraising with community partners like the Yum! Brands Foundation and Middleton Reutlinger. Tailspin also provides a platform to introduce the latest and greatest from the world of craft beer to Louisville.  Look for all your favorite highlights and beers at the event - and a few surprises as well - as we strive to make Tailspin better every year.”

Sponsor Liquor Barn is presenting everyone in attendance a souvenir take-home growler at the end of the fest.
