The Brewfest tradition returns! Beaver Dam, Kentucky is hosting Brews & Balloons with a day of beer tasting, food, entertainment, and hot air balloon rides. These are all ingredients for an awesome party.

Paul Sandefur, Mayor of Beaver Dam, stated, “We’ve wanted to host a Hot Air Balloon Glow for some time now. Pairing the Balloon Fest in the evening with our Brewfest during the day makes for an exciting day of Brews, Balloons, Food, and Fun for everyone in Beaver Dam. We’ll have fantastic LIVE bands on a stage in the park, Breweries and Food Trucks from around the region, Hot Air Balloons and rides, and of course, the Balloon Glow at Dusk. This is going to be simply spectacular. We hope folks from throughout our region join us. Parking is FREE, and we have plenty of room. We want to do something big like this every year.”
