CANvitational, Golden Corks and a Masquerade Ball Contest

A few new and exciting events and offers came through my inbox recently that I thought were well worth passing along. Wish I had more free time to check them out myself.

Sun King Brewery, the first brewing in Indianapolis in fifty years, is hosting the inaugural CANvitational on September 28th. This is the first canned craft beer festival to be presented in the Midwest.  More than 30 craft breweries from 16 states will be participating in this street fest, which will also have food trucks lining Georgia Street.

Wine lovers should check out the Golden Cork Contest Keel and Curley Winery is having to celebrate their 10th anniversary, which coincides with their millionth bottle. In the spirit of Willie Wonka’s Golden Ticket, customers will be looking for golden corks.

If you find a golden cork in any of the bottles from Keel and Curley, you will gather with other winners at the winery on October 10, 2013. There will then be a competition for a grand prize trip to San Francisco and Napa Valley that will include a steam train tour of California wineries.

Keel and Curley, the second largest winery in Florida, has more information on the contest on their website.

One of my favorite wineries in California’s Sonoma region has what looks like a fun event coming up, The Masquerade Ball at Francis Ford Coppola Winery. The October 26th event has been dubbed “Sleepy Hollow meets Gatsby.” There will be a DJ, costume contest, themed lounge and even a fortune teller. Most of all, there will be plenty of Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection Wines.
The Ball is for those 21 and over and will be held in Coppola’s Barrel Room. You can purchase advance tickets before they sell out at
