Topeka put on its first craft brewery festival

KSAL StaffJune 29, 2013

Beer enthusiasts attending Topeka’s first craft brewery festival had pales, wheats, lagers and fruity seasonal brews to pick from.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that about 900 people turned out Saturday to sample 122 beers from 38 American craft brewers.

Downtown Topeka Inc. president and CEO Vince Frye said the event was so successful, that the organization already has decided to hold another.

The organization came up with the idea of putting on a craft brewery festival while attending a chamber of commerce retreat in Colorado. Frye says Downtown Topeka Inc. has been working to set up the festival since the start of the year.

Frye says that most of the beers offered were carried in Topeka stores, and those who weren’t, are trying to get picked up.
