Indie food & drink during Harvest Homecoming: Donum Dei Brewery and Wick’s Pizza Parlor.


Harvest Homecoming’s annual occupation of downtown New Albany is almost here, and in 2016, “booth days” take place from October 6 – 9 (Thursday through Sunday). We’re here to have a look at what’s taking place behind the booths, where our independent local businesses operate throughout the year.

Previously we’ve charted the progress of renovations at the old Abe’s Rental building (140 E. Main Street). The current rumor has it eventually becoming a bakery, and more strides have been made since August, when this was posted:

RENOVATION UPDATE: You know, that building where Abe’s Rental used to be (140 E Main St).

In the completed patio setting shown above, Donum Dei Brewery (3211 Grant Line Road; behind El Nopal) will be staging a beer garden during Harvest Homecoming booth days.

We will be having a Harvest Homecoming Beer Garden! Come and relax and have a couple of pints.

The locations is 140 E. Main. The garden will be on the patio behind the building.

Hours will be:

Thursday October 6, 11-10
Friday October 7, 11-11
Saturday October 8, 11-11
Sunday October 9, 11-6

We will have live original music Friday and Saturday night 7-9.

Friday Bob and Erin Youell
Saturday South Upand

A block away at Wick’s Pizza Parlor (225 State Street), the emphasis is on the music, but of course there’ll be food and drink as well.

As listings are posted, we’ll add and update here.
