Does anybody know if anything is going on Wednesday night as in the past as a beer tapping / beer garden event? We really enjoy getting into town early and hanging out in the beer garden to start the event.
It doesn't look like there is any "official beer of GenCon 2021" that I found.
Are the food trucks going to be present this year too? Thats one of my favorite parts of the trip!
Genevieve, a Belgian-style Amber ale from Sun King Brewery returns this year as the official beer of Gen Con, per their Facebook post from early July. They say there will be a Block Party this year, but I haven’t seen details.
Plenty of discussion about food trucks in the Travel Housing and Dining subforum.
The Genevieve was pretty good. But there will be a lot of Oktoberfest styles out by mid-September. I am down with those.
And if we are talking about beer (and food), I went to Goodwood (where The RAM used to be) for Pop Con. It was very similar.
Sun King released their Oktoberfest last Friday
I volunteer to consume all expired beer if need be....
I hereby grant a +6 to Brewski's CON
Where is this beer garden at?
In past years it was located on Georgia street across Capitol street outside the ICC's east entrance. That's where all the food trucks were located. Not sure if it will be the same this year, but likely.
Thank you for the info
