La PORTE — The excitement is building for what promises to be the biggest and tastiest La Pour Brew & Wine Fest yet.

New to this year’s fest, Journeyman Distillery will provide tasting of select spirits as part of VIP Admission (spirit tasting during General Admission will be at an additional cost).

Local favorite Jim Post will provide musical entertainment for this year’s event. Post plays an eclectic solo show of his own songs and covers, ranging from country to classic rock and oldies to current sounds.
