Harvest Homecoming begins in earnest this week, and of course there’ll be much talk about the annual “swill walk” on Friday. Following is a typically hurried and inexact guide to establishments downtown that will be staging special events during the annual inundation — and some that will be sticking to the program as usual. What they have in common (we hope) is the availability of better beer — or in the winery’s case, vino.

NABC Bank Street Brewhouse: Our Fringe Fest (episode six) through Saturday, with food, beer, and music. Look for the release of Hoosier Daddy and the annual fresh-hopped Wet Knobs Harvest Hop Ale.
Wick’s Pizza: Music under the big top in the parking lot. NABC’s draft truck, Rosa L. Stumblebus, will aid in the dispensing of beer at the Wick’s fete. Black & Blue Grass and Naughty Girl will be pouring from Rosa, while inside the bricks and mortar, Strassen Bräu.
Feast BBQ: Ryan sez, “Happy Harvest Homecoming. Join us for better sandwiches than you’ll find from a both and more craft beer choices.”
Habana Blues Tapas Restaurant: Leo says that Habana Blues will be introducing its new Kentucky Mojito.
The Exchange pub + kitchen: “Harvest Homecoming is finally here, and to celebrate we’re throwing an outdoor party (Octobierfest) on Friday and Saturday in the parking lot of The Exchange pub + kitchen, featuring live music, beer, wine, spirits, amazing food, and a few other special things we’ll be announcing this week. Tell your friends and help spread the word.”
Cafe 27 American Bistro: The Parking Lot Party … “All harvest long we will be partying it up, serving great food and spirits inside and outside in the tent with great live entertainment … Please check out our schedule of events.”
The Irish Exit and Dillinger’s: HarvestPalooza … no details yet.
The Warehouse Hookah Bar & Cafe: Business as usual.
River City Winery: Gary Humphrey says business as usual at the winery as Harvest Homecoming takes on a very personal meaning for him because it’s grape-picking time.
La Bocca … “We have a tent in front of the restaurant and we turn the actual restaurant into a bar all weekend.”
