The City of Rushville will host the 2nd Annual Libations by the Levee from 4 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, at the Riverside Park Amphitheater (100 W. Water Street).
The city partnered with Indiana On Tap to make the event possible. Indiana On Tap is a craft beer media, marketing and events company.
“Last year’s event was considered largely successful,” Indiana On Tap Founder and Managing Partner Justin Knepp said. “The Riverside Park is a perfect venue for an event like this. We are really looking forward to it.”
More than 20 breweries, wineries and distilleries will set up booths for event goers to sample their products. Those who attend will have access to unlimited samples of craft beer, wine and spirits.
