The historic Indiana Beach Boardwalk Resort, in partnership with Indiana On Tap, is excited to present the inaugural 'Hops & Coaster Drops' Craft Beer, Wine & Spirits Festival on Sat, Sept. 11th from 2pm - 6pm (with an immediate after-party taking place until 11pm). This massive event will take place within the Indiana Beach Amusement Park on beautiful Lake Shafer in Monticello, Indiana. This is the first known craft beer, wine & spirits festival to take place in a major Amusement Park in the world! Come make history with us!
This inaugural event will feature UNLIMITED SAMPLES from a staggering 65+ breweries, distilleries & wineries placed throughout the amusement park. The event will also include incredible live music and access to rides and games throughout the park! (The park will be closed to the public so that event attendees can enjoy the sampling AND the rides and games with no long lines and no stress)! Food will be available for purchase from multiple locations throughout the park.
Gates will open for the event at 2pm with rides, games, food and merchandise immediately available. The 'tasting event' will take place from 2pm - 6pm throughout the park. (You can enjoy your samples WHILE also taking breaks to enjoy the rides and entertainment). The park will remain open after the tasting event ends for an official after party, where attendees can continue to enjoy the rides, games and entertainment until 8pm. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. LIVE MUSIC will take place from 7pm - 11pm in the Sky Bar featuring the wildly popular Mr. Funnyman band--the ultimate variety band from the Chicagoland area.
The new Indiana Beach is not your father's Indiana Beach. There are new rides and attractions for 2021, including Flying Bob's, (brought back after several years absence), the Sea Warrior that first made its debut in Melrose Park, IL, and the highly-touted Triple Looping Coaster (which was the world's first triple loop coaster and is anticipated to be ready by the event).
Tickets are now on sale with an opportunity to save BIG by buying online, in advance.
