A new festival planned for this fall will bring 25 craft breweries to northern Bartholomew County. 450 North Brewing Company and Indiana On Tap, the state’s craft brewing organization, are organizing the Corn Maze Beer Festival on October 1st.

You will be able to navigate through a corn maze behind Simmons Winery, with beer stations scattered throughout the inside of the maze serving free samples of craft beers, according to the brewery. There will also be food trucks and other activities.

The festival will be from 1 to 5 p.m. and there will be shuttle service available to the festival and special rates at local hotels. Michael Brookbank, organizer of the festival, says that the corn maze will also be open to the public after the festival.
