Sample local libations at Hops, Shops, & Chardonnay this Friday [Food & Drink]


“Eat local!” is a common rallying cry these days among food enthusiasts and environmentalists alike. Also becoming popular is the natural progression of this idea: drink local! Beverage connoisseurs are doubtless familiar with the regional beer offerings, but may not be as knowledgeable about the growing prominence of locally produced wines.

In order to showcase our regions finest wine and beer selections, Jeffersonville Main Street Inc. presents Hops, Shops, & Chardonnay this upcoming Friday, the 21st. For a $15 ticket, attendees can stroll through Jeffersonville’s business district sampling libations from:
Al’s Cut Rate Liquors
Bluegrass Brewing Company
New Albanian Brewing Company
Chateau de Pique Winery
Grateful Goat Winery
Indian Creek Winery
The Ridge Winery
Turtle Creek Winery

Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Hops, Shops, & Chardonnay website, or attendees may pay upon arrival at the registration tent, which will be at Glossbrenner Garden, on the corner of Spring Street and Chestnut Street. This event takes place from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
