Join the Cultivators of Waterfront Botanical Gardens for the First Annual Homebrew Fair on September 19, 2017 from noon-3:00 PM at the future site of the Waterfront Botanical Gardens (corner of Frankfort Ave. and River Road). Sign-up to participate in the contest, and join us to learn about the craft!

 Cultivators of Waterfront Botanical Gardens is a body of young individuals who actively participate in the development of the Waterfront Botanical Gardens by creating and promoting programming for the public. The First Annual Homebrew Fair is a major fundraiser for the Cultivators toward the Gardens’ campaign, and this year is the first year for this ultimate event!

 The Homebrew Fair is an opportunity for us to come together and share our passion for beer while creating an environment for learning and discussing the craftsmanship. Along with a homebrew competition that Waterfront Botanical Garden members can participate in at the Homebrew Fair, we will have speakers sharing their stories as it relates to beer. Our line-up consists of: Kevin Gibson (author of Louisville Beer: Derby City History on Draft), Brent Burchett (Director, Division of Value-Added Plant Production- hops pilot farming program) and a Homebrew-Making Class with John Ronayne of Brewgrass Homebrew Supply. We’ll also have vendors, in the likes of Elixir Kombucha and Butchertown Pizza! So, bring your thirst to the Homebrew Fair at Waterfront Botanical Gardens, and celebrate beer with the Cultivators!

About Waterfront Botanical Gardens:

The Waterfront Botanical Gardens was started by Botanica, an umbrella organization for the local gardening community that was started in 1993 to help enlighten, entertain, and educate the community about the botanical world. In 2001, Botanica learned that it was the beneficiary of a trust established by member Helen Harrigan, a local gardener with a desire to see a botanical garden and conservatory built in Louisville. Helen’s gift reshaped the focus of our organization, and we set about our work to create what will become Louisville’s Waterfront Botanical Gardens.
