Ardent Craft Ales will headline at Hogtober

The born-on-Jefferson Avenue Ardent Craft Ales, in partnership with Brown Distributing, will be the headliner and only beer served at this year’s Hogtober at Libby Hill.

Ardent will feature six beers at the festival, including their new core ale, The Common; a fall brew, Sweet Potato & Sage Saison; and a single batch “The One” Pumpkin Ale (as in “one and done”). Their popular Honey Ginger, IPA, and Saison will also be on tap.

As a neat Jefferson Avenue crossover, the guys at Ardent just brewed a batch of “a subtly smoked Rauchbier” with Chris Davis from Alamo BBQ. Beer Advocate describes Rauchbier as “an old German beer style, its origins go back to the 1500’s […] It’s typically of dark colour and has similarities of the Oktoberfestbier. Green malts are literally dried over an open fire of beech wood, imparting a unique smokiness (“rauch” is German for smoke), the usage of which produces beers of an acquired taste.”

So could someone confirm – craft beer is the only beer being served? Nothing else? Thanks.

Just out of curiosity (and given my experiences with too many other local events): Will there be anything liquid for kids and non-drinking adults?

It strikes me that too many events in recent years make too big a deal about which beers and other forms of booze are being served. Yeah, that’s great free promotion for the brewers, but it’s kinda sad to see little kids dragged along and then given nothing (or a warm bottle of water) while their parents swill away. On what planet is this a friendly neighborhood event?
