Did you ever have a day where everything went basically right? Saturday I visited four places and they were all open, hospitable and doing well. Madison – Riverfest book signing for HoosierBeer Derrick Morris and I went down to Madison and spent three hours signing books in the beer tent. Heavy rains but nothing got wet. Lots of people at the festival despite the rain. Village Lights Bookstore handled everything well, as did the organizers. There was an article in the Madison Courier about the three books VL was promoting over the weekend (thanks). At the fest, people had their choice of Great Crescent, New Albanian, Power House, Sun King or Upland. Tastes and glasses were available by a ticket system. Not the cheapest way but a good way to control sales in a mixed-age crowd. Got a look through Just Brew It’s window in downtown Madison but they were closed. Oh, and there’s a Art Music and Homebrew Party in Brown County on July 27th. Seymour – Twisted Crew Twisted Crew can be found on the west side of Seymour. It’s a production brewery with a friendly tasting room and growlers to go. Bedford – Salt Creek Brewery A roadhouse plain and simple. But with a bunch of tanks downstairs behind the bar where they can be viewed. Built in an old garage (what was a garage doing in that neck of the woods anyway. Take Old 37 south from 37 south of Harrodsburg or north of Bedford. Look for Needmore on maps. Good luck. There are plenty of locals and lots of events and bands. So many they have overflow parking up the hill. Bloomington – Last stop, the Bloomington Brewing production brewery and catering kitchen on the west side of town. Here’s Jeff Mease and Nick Banks. Can an Indiana Beer Trail be far behind?
