On this week's Edge of Indy, we're talking to Union Jack Pub as they prepare for their 5th Annual Pumpkin, Cider, and Fall Beer Festival - Plus the Indianapolis Zoo is in the studio to talk about Zoo Boo and what we can expect this fall!
Jay Wetzel, the owner of the Union Jack Pub, is busy planning the 5th Annual Pumpkin, Cider, and Fall Beer Festival but he was able to take a couple minutes out of his schedule to sit down with Erin and Brittany.
There are a lot of cool things happening at this year's event, including keg tosses, pumpkin painting, pumpkin smashing and more! Plus there is a home brew competition where the best pumpkin home brew wins a $100 gift certificate.
Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door. To see a list of breweries and purchase tickets, you can do that here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/5th-annual-pumpkin-cider-and-fall-beer-festival-tickets-36523498768
