Conner Prairie Horizon Council Hosts Craft Beer Event

If you’re a beer fan, and don’t drink beers that are found on race cars, then you may want to visit
Conner Prairie’s History on Tap, their first-ever craft beer event for beer enthusiasts and newbies. The event, which is presented by their Horizon Council (the young professionals group), will feature tastings of both local and historical brews, brewing demonstrations, and an evening adventure through 1836 Prairietown.

Conner Prairie Horizon Council's first-ever craft beer event

For a $25 ticket, you will get to enjoy:

  • Beer tastings from local breweries including Bier Brewery, Flat 12, Fountain Square Brewery, Sun King, Three Pints Brewpub and Upland
  • Presentation by Douglas Wissing, author of “One Pint at a Time: A Traveler’s Guide to Indiana’s Breweries”
  • Craft brewing demonstrations by Tuxedo Park Brewers
  • An evening adventure through 1836 Prairietown
  • Sunset flights on 1859 Balloon Voyage (weather permitting, additional cost)

You will also be able to enjoy a short beer that was made onsite by Conner Prairie’s costumed interpreters in Prairietown. You will be able to visit the Golden Eagle Inn to see how they made beer 186 years ago, and even taste a sample of their efforts.

History on Tap will be held June 15 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person, $12 for designated drivers and can be purchased at their Eventbrite page (I buy tickets like this all the time; it’s totally safe and extremely convenient).

And if you want to save 20% off your ticket, go to the Conner Prairie Horizon Council’s Facebook Page and “like” it to receive the discount.

This event is for adults ages 21 and older, and you’ll have to show your driver’s license or other proof of age.
