No tricks here, just a preview of the annual Hendricks County Hoppy Halloween event that is sure to be a real treat - again this year in Plainfield, Indiana. I featured this event in a Weekend Primer last year and have written a couple of posts on the event's awesome host, Brew Link Brewing.  

Hoppy Halloween BeerBrew Link Brewing and Indiana On Tap will again bring this Halloween-themed adult event to Hendricks County on Oct. 19 at the IndyWest Harley Davidson, 6201 Cambridge Way, Plainfield. While the impressive selection of 25 Indiana craft breweries, wineries and distilleries that are participating in the event are reason enough to grab a bundle of tickets, this festival is also teeming with food, fun and entertainment.

You'll find the best food truck eats, a build-your-own s'mores station, games, raffles, a costume contest and live entertainment. Word is a Zombie Flash Mob is likely, again this year. Who says Halloween is just for kids?

If you are familiar with the unique brews the masterminds of Brew Link Brewery create, you know that each and every release is much anticipated.

As if I haven't outlined enough reasons to attend this festive, tasty event, I should also mention that all attendees will have an opportunity to purchase their Just One S'More Imperial Milk Stout, which is described as a graham cracker, marshmallow and chocolate craft beer concoction. This limited edition treat will be restricted to just one 4-pack per attendee.

So, call your friends, dig out your best costume and prepare yourself for one of Hendricks County's most festive Halloween events. But this one is for the adults.
