Indiana Beard Contest More Than Facial Hair

Just in time for the cool breeze of fall, the inaugural Beards & Brews Championship will heat up a battle of beards, many representing local breweries. The event will be held on from noon to 4 p.m. Nov. 1 in the Eighth Street and Maple Avenue parking lot (behind the Visitor Center alley) in downtown Noblesville.

“One of our objectives is to find new opportunities to showcase the people, places and experiences of Noblesville.

      Triton is definitely not moving. Not sure where that error in the original article is from. I believe the Triton part of the competition is online, not at the brewery.
