A STEIN IS BORN
BEER BASH: An attendee at Lebanon's first Augtoberfest pours a stein of People's Brewing Co. ale Saturday. About 800 people came out to downtown Lebanon for food and beer from People's, which plans to open a taproom in Lebanon, and from Noble Order Brewing in Zionsville, said Casey Samson, president of event organizer The Heart of Lebanon. The large crowd nearly lead to near catastrophe when the event ran out of beer. While People's headed back to their brewery in Lafayette to get more kegs, event participants including Arni's, Greek's Pizzeria and the Boone County Jail Distillery leant some of their beer for purchase, Samson said.
The Heart of Lebanon intends to bring the event back next year, Samson said, though this time with more taps and more food.
"We're going to do nothing but improve," he said.
