Get ready beer fans. It’s time to get your tickets for the 14th Annual Keg Liquor Fest of Ale, at the New Albany Riverfront Amphitheater (201 E. Water St.) on Saturday June 1, 2019 from 3 to 7 p.m. This fun fest benefits Crusade for Children and  raised over $17,000 last year. Pick up your tickets for $40 to $45 in advance or $55 at the gate day of event if available. (Designated drivers are free.) Advance tickets are available online or at Keg Liquors, 617 E. Lewis & Clark Pkwy. in Clarksville or 4304 Charlestown Rd. in New Albany.

This grassroots fun fest promotes independent breweries and businesses, offering over 250 amazing craft and import ales for sample, plus wine, ciders and hard sodas. Todd Antz,  founder of the festival, grew up watching his father and other fire fighters all over the area helping raise funds for the Crusade. With that inspiration, The Keg Liquors Fest of Ale was created as a fundraiser and has raised over $100,000 to date. The Keg Fest of Ale will also be running donations through the New Albany Fire Department.
