We hope to see you at TFN11: Tailgate for Something on Saturday, October 4, from 11 a.m. to ??? at Black Acre Brewing Company's new production facility at the Coal Factory on Bonna Avenue in Irvington. More details here.
- Weather. We all know that the weather in Indiana is unpredictable. Therefore, regardless of Saturday's weather forecast, we recommend that you bring a canopy if you have one in case the weather decides not to cooperate. The current forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the high 40s and a 10% chance of rain.
- Victuals (i.e., Don't be a freeloader). We don't have many rules for this thing, but one rule we expect everyone to follow is this: Please bring beer and food to share. The beer and food don't have to be anything super-rare or of gourmet quality. Just bring something tasty. Don't be a freeloader.
- Courtesy. Please pick up your trash before you leave. Our friends at Black Acre are doing us a big favor by letting us hold TFN11 at their place. Therefore, please return their kindness by not leaving a mess behind. Bring trash bags with you and clean up before you leave. Don't make our Native American friend cry.
- Pace yourself and hydrate. TFN11 will be similar to a beer festival in that there will be a whole lot of beer to sample. Some of that beer will pack a nice wallop. So pace yourself. We urge you to bring festival tasting glasses if you have them so you can go with small pours rather than overindulging. And bring water with you. A good rule of thumb is to drink equal amounts of water and beer. So if you do a 4 ounce sample of beer, you should drink 4 ounces of water. Yes, you'll have to pee a lot, but bathrooms will be provided on site, so that will not be a problem.
We hope that you'll come out and enjoy a day of beer-sharing and food-sharing with us!
