Louisville: Tailspin Ale

Tailspin Ale Fest organizers returned once again to present the best beer fest of the season on a sunny, warm February day – Tailpsin 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 were available for consumption. People got to “Mug” it up at Magnolia Photo Booth and “Tapped” into tunes provided by Hot Brown Smackdown and Hot Iron Skillet plus DJ Jamar Mack had the crowd grooving and dancing! Guests viewed vintage airplanes on display with pin-up girls & fly boys and dined large with some of Louisville’s finest food trucks.

With over 150 beers available onsite, attendees got 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.

Event Co-Creator and Organizer, Tisha Gainey states, “We were 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 were 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 provided a platform to introduce the latest and greatest from the world of craft beer to Louisville.”
