    The second year of the Tailspin Ale Fest will be held on two nights in 2015. On Friday, February 20, starting at 7pm, there will be a Barrel Roll Experience which is completely new at the venue this year. It promises to be "a fun filled evening mingling with Brewers and Brewery Reps, while enjoying limited Barrel Aged Beers, Bourbons and Craft Cocktails with food and entertainment included. A True VIP experience for all in this limited attendance event. Tickets include samplings of Barrel Aged Beers, Bourbons and Cocktails, plus local food and entertainment. Designated driver tickets available too."

    The traditional Tailspin Ale Fest will return in its second year on Saturday, February 21. After much success from last year, this year's "Winter Warmer" will be a one of a kind experience for beer lovers and connoisseurs in Louisville. The festival will feature live music entertainment, mingling with a special Kentucky heritage section, and a biplane display with the historic hangar at Bowman Filed as the backdrop. All paid attendees will receive a souvenir tasting glass. Food served by local food trucks will be available for purchase. Those who purchase VIP tickets can arrive an hour early, and will also receive a one year subscription to DRAFT Magazine, a food voucher, and a Tailspin Ale Fest souvenir. The event is from 3pm-7pm (VIP entrance at 2pm). Last year the event sold out.

    Featuring more than 150 craft beers and the following breweries from around the country:


    Tin Man

    West Sixth
