Tailspin Ale Fest 2019


This year’s Tailspin Alefest was bigger and better than ever.  over 4000 people enjoyed more than 180 craft beers from around the country! Check out this list! If you went home jonesing for a craft beer, it was your own fault!

The day was a bit cool at 45 degrees or so, but the sun was out and everyone seemed pretty comfortable. After all, It IS called “Louisville’s Winter Warmer”. There were 5 huge tents set up for the vendors, entertainment and displays. Tents were heated and all in all it was like a tailgating party, but YOUR team didn’t lose and there was more beer!

A special shout out to “Flying Axes” who had the good taste and wisdom to combine ax throwing with all this beer drinking. See our previous feature on Flying Axes HERE!

The event was held at Bowman field as usual, at the Louisville Executive Aviation Hangar just off Cannons Lane. It’s a great setup with plenty of parking and transportation from around the grounds to the festival site.

If you missed it, make plans to attend next year. It is the perfect cure for cabin fever this time of year!
