For the third year in a row, the best craft breweries in the state of Indiana will present their beer for a summer tasting.
The Fishers On Tap-Summer event, which is a fundraiser presented by the Fishers Rotary Club, will take place Saturday, June 13th from 4 to 8 p.m. at the City of Fishers Amphitheater. Event proceeds are given back to local service agencies and support organizations to help local youth and their families.
Nineteen local craft brewers will be at this event, including Sun King, Tow Yard, Outliers and several others. Harmony Wine will provide wine for the non-beer crowd.
Attendees can also sample appetizers from area restaurants like Peterson’s, Red Sake Japanese Bistro, Ruth’s Chris Steak House and Eddie Merlot’s. Live music by Phoebe and the Mojo Makers will also be provided.
Ticket prices start at $20 for a designated driver or wine-only drinkers, and then goes up to $40 for general admission. VIP tickets are $60, and people with VIP tickets get to go in for an hour before the main event starts. The VIP event starts at 4 p.m. and runs until 5 p.m., and then people with general admission tickets can go in at 5 p.m. Those with designated driver tickets will not be served alcohol, but are allowed to enjoy the food and music provided. A photo ID is required and attendees must be 21 or over.
Fishers Rotary Club Membership Chair Bill Jerrow is proud to be a part of hosting this event.
“It’s a great blend of us trying to do the right thing and good things for people that need help in the community, supporting a great growing Indiana business, or market, I guess, or industry, and then getting all of the nice feedback from not only the guests, but the brewers who say ‘It’s a great event, best event we go to each year, can’t wait for next year’; so, we just feel like we’ve hit the right note all around in all three areas,” Jerrow said.
