450 North Brewing Corn Maze Beer Fest: A One Of A Kind Event


Craft beer festivals aren’t anything new. They happen just about every week in every large city. But every once in a while, there is a beer fest that makes me wonder why I didn’t think of that first. This is one of those kind of events. The 450 North Brewing Corn Maze Beer Fest is something you’ve got to check out.


Who is 450 North Brewing?

450 North Corn Maze Beer FestA good place to start is to learn about the brewery. 450 North Brewing has been around since 2012.

They operate a 10 barrel brew system and have 20 beers on tap in their taproom. You can look forward to canned beer releases from them too. Recently, they’ve been making some amazing New England IPAs. Follow me on Instagram to see more and read my thoughts.

In addition, they have a restaurant in the taproom that features brick oven pizza and other options to keep your appetite satisfied while checking out their beer, cider and wine selections.

Being in Columbus, Indiana, they service the local area and distribute their beer to select retailers in the area. If you get the chance, visit them.

450 North Brewing Corn Maze Beer Fest

450 North Corn Maze Beer FestIf visiting the brewery and restaurant wasn’t justification enough to go check out 450 North Brewing, their Corn Maze Beer Fest is. This is literally a one of a kind event so don’t go looking for another event quite like this because you won’t find it. It’s on September 23rd so make sure you read to the end and find out how you can get tickets today.

The 450 North Brewing Corn Maze Beer Fest takes place in a custom made corn maze that is spread over 5 acres. Within the maze, you will find your way to stations pouring craft beer from over 40 breweries. That’s a lot of beer so you will want to upgrade to a VIP pass and get a full 5 hours to enjoy this event. More on the ticket options and beer later.

VIP gets into the maze at noon while General Admission starts at 1:30. Either way; you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the beer and socialize with other craft beer fans.

And the fun doesn’t end after the maze is over. From 5pm – 9pm, there will be live music and food trucks to keep the event going. And of course, more craft beer.

Even More Beer

To make things even better, they are releasing two beers for this event and one comes with the price of your General Admission (GA) or VIP Ticket.

Sundown

450 North SundownSo the people at 450 North Brewing are not only great brewers but they also love their customers. As part of your GA or VIP ticket, you will get a Crowler (32oz can) of a one time release beer to take home with you. It is called Sundown and is an Imperial Oktoberfest beer. Weighing in at 8%, this will be the type of beer that I will want to crack open on a fall night outside by a fire. And not to mention that the car artwork is amazing.

Maze Haze

As mentioned above, 450 North has made a name for themselves recently with their NE IPA releases. These 16oz cans have had artwork that is just as good as the liquid inside. I’ve been fortunate to get most of them and can tell you they are worthy of the hype.

Continuing this trend, they are releasing one for that weekend called Maze Haze. The full details aren’t available yet but this corn maze themed beer will be a must for those that are attending the corn maze.
