If you want the best of food & drink, you’ll find it at the 28th Annual Taste of our Town (TOOT), Saturday, October 13th, in downtown Lewisburg. The streets will be packed with thousands of people, 2 wineries, 3 breweries, a variety of musicians and performers, and about 36 food vendors. This event is massive enough to serve your needs. Tokens buy your tastings and pints of beer. Each token is $1. Your biggest challenge will be keeping the momentum and moving along to other tasting experiences without overindulging in any one thing.
Located at the Market (next to Food & Friends), on the corner of W. Washington/Church St., you’ll find the Carnegie Biergarten.
Pints are 5 tokens ($5).
