Noblesville Rotary Club 7th Annual BrewBQ 

Noblesville, Indiana — “We’re excited to formally announce the 7th annual Noblesville BrewBQ to be held on Saturday, August 19th at Federal Hill Commons!  This is a fun charitable event that allows the community to come together to support a great cause, while also sharing their love of BBQ and beer,” said Carrie Dixon, President of the Noblesville Rotary Club.

The Purpose:  This is not just a fun event for the community to enjoy the outdoors and music.  Proceeds go to supporting local students who attend Ivy Tech Noblesville Campus with scholarship funds.  There are not many scholarships available to students in technical fields of study.  We are passionate about providing opportunities in these fields especially with Noblesville’s focus on economic development.  “We are so thankful for our partnership with the Noblesville Rotary and grateful for their support. The BrewBQ is a great event to support their efforts of providing scholarships for local students to attend IVY Tech. We are thankful for the long-standing relationship that the Noblesville Rotary has experienced with IVY Tech and look forward to many continued years,” said Stacy Atkinson, Chancellor for Ivy Tech Hamilton County.

Details:  The BrewBQ holds a BBQ tasting contest with an opportunity for attendees to taste some of the best BBQ around. The contest will feature an immense array of unique recipes, from BBQ’ers across Noblesville and Indiana alike. Music throughout the evening will be from local bands with returning Headliner- That’s What She Said from 7-9:30PM.    Beer will be on tap from several local vendors.  The Bier Brewery will be back this year and has won multiple medals at prestigious brewing competitions, including The Indiana Brewers’ Cup, the Great American Beer Festival, and the World Beer Cup.

We are excited to announce that Primeval Brewing in Noblesville is a new addition to the event this year!  “We love being part of the community and are super excited to be able to serve beer this year at the Rotary Clubs’s BrewBQ!  Beer and barbeque pair so well together that this will be a wonderful combination to bring together,” said Primeval Owner Tim Palmer.  Another return for Upland Brewery with brews so good they ran out and had to run for more!  For those who enjoy wine, Spencer Farms Winery will be returning this year. 

Sponsorships: “The entire Associated Drywall Partner’s crew is proud to support Noblesville Rotary and this year’s BrewBQ event!   Great Music, mouthwatering BBQ and craft beer, what could be better on an Indiana summer evening?” said Joe Carnavale with Associated Drywall Partners – Co-Title Sponsor.  The UPS Store returns as the other Co-Title Sponsor!  Other committed sponsors include Onieal and Associates Financial, Meyer-Najem Construction, USI Consultants, Porter Roofing and Restoration, Talk To Tucker – Andy Liechty & Associates, Bell Techlogix and more. We are still accepting sponsorships and are a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
