NABC Gold and the annals of the parade.
This Saturday, October 6, is the annual Harvest Homecoming Parade in downtown New Albany.
Pictured above is a scene from the 2009 parade, when NABC had its fire truck float. Note the absence of the steeple on St. Mary's. It was being restored post-hurricane, and the church being made ready for an exterior refitting when the parade passed it that year.
Because the parade's traditional final turn is from Spring Street onto Bank Street, you can see the whole show at Bank Street Brewhouse with a Progressive Pint in hand. BSB will open at 11:00 a.m., and while the parade begins at noon, it takes a while for it to reach our craft beer reviewing stand.
Although it has been on tap for a few weeks, NABC Gold’s official unveiling is on Saturday. To celebrate, there’ll be $3 pints of Gold all day long. NABC Gold is the latest addition to our Session Series (4.2%), and brewed in the style of American blonde ale.
Hoosier Daddy Crimson & Cream Ale will be on tap, too; in fact, we intend to continue brewing it through next spring. Finally, the annual parade party at the 1117 East Spring Street Neighborhood Associations is once again on. Stay tuned for further details.
