Event Details

Voted Evansville's Best Brew Festival by Evansville Living Magazine, Brewfest 2021 is an event you do not want to miss! Thousands of festival patrons will have the opportunity to taste over 300 craft beers, wines, and liquors. Patrons can also enjoy tastings from 20+ local food vendors and live music. This all happens on Historic Bosse Field, home of the Racine Bells, featured in the 1992 film A League of Their Own! Built in 1915, it is the third-oldest ballpark still in regular use in the United States, surpassed only by Fenway Park (1912) and Wrigley Field (1914).

All proceeds from the 17th Annual Brewfest event go to benefit SWIRCA & More, a non-profit organization that dedicates itself to helping individuals maintain their independence in the face of disabilities and aging. Must be 21+ to attend event with valid ID. No ID, No Entry. SWIRCA supports responsible drinking and safe driving only, so please plan ahead to take advantage of the free and discounted safe rides that will be available after the event. As this event is a fundraiser for SWIRCA & More, tickets are nonrefundable. This is a rain or shine event. New this year: Make sure to design and bring your own pretzel necklaces to wear and eat at the event. Please visit www.swirca.org/brewfest to see a full list of event vendors.

Since COVID-19 is still a fluid situation and issues could arise at any moment, SWIRCA & More will continue to carefully monitor the developments of the pandemic as we move closer to the event date. We will also be working closely with state and local officials and vendors to ensure all safety guidelines and procedures set by the federal, state, and local governments are fully administered. The health and safety of all attendees is of the highest priority, therefore due to COVID-19, SWIRCA Brewfest will be initiating safety protocols to help reduce the risk for vendors, volunteers, and patrons attending the event. To review these safety protocols, please visit the SWIRCA Brewfest webpage at www.swirca.org/brewfest. All participants attending the SWIRCA Brewfest event on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at Bosse Field do so at their own risk. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present, especially public places where close contact is possible. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and patrons with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. We ask that you please be considerate of your fellow patrons and stay at home if you feel sick or have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher the day of the event. By participating in the SWIRCA Brewfest event on Saturday, October 16, 2021, patrons voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 or otherwise. In the event that state and local governments find it necessary to close the State of Indiana again due to the rise in infections due to the pandemic, the SWIRCA Brewfest will be postponed or cancelled.
