Indiana Microbrewers Festival 2023

JULY 22, 2023


Beer enthusiasts from all over gather for the one-day Indiana Microbrewers Festival, in support of Indiana local breweries and charity organizations.

At the 26th annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival more than 30 breweries congregate in downtown Indianapolis for a day of beer tasting, lawn games, live music and backyard barbecue camaraderie. The festival will take place at the White River State Park and attendees will find more than 100 craft beers, ciders and meads, along with giant jenga, corn hole and keg toss. Discounted tickets are available for designated drivers, for those who plan to sip away for hours.

The 2023 vendor list has not yet been finalized for the Indiana Microbrewers Festival, but if it’s like previous years, it’s expected to include plenty of vegan, fast food and gourmet options. (Past vendors have included That Vegan Joint, Gomez BBQ Hot Box Pizza, Boozie Bundts and Smoking Goose Meatery.)

Proceeds from this year’s festival will support the Little Red Door Cancer Agency, as well as the Guild’s mission of representing Indiana breweries’ legal and educational initiatives.
