There will be a strong local connection to Saturday’s (9/18) Fall Festival at Pioneer Farm. Margaret Spiegel, the director and curator of the Mahaska County Historical Society and Nelson Pioneer Farm and Museum, says Pioneer Farm and NoCoast Beer Co. have formed a partnership.
“Last year we were able to grow some grains and they have brewed them with some historic beer recipes. And they are going to be having samples of those recipes during Festival. And we are continuing that partnership. A lot of the grains that are getting threshed during our event will go over to NoCoast and get brewed next year.”
The 55th annual Fall Festival is Saturday from 9:30am to 4:30pm at Nelson Pioneer Farm in Oskaloosa. Advance tickets are available online at Nelson Pioneer dot org slash tickets.
