White Lion Transforms Beer Garden into Harvest Nights Fall Venue

SPRINGFIELD — White Lion Brewing’s summer beer garden officially ended on Aug. 31. During the summer months, the downtown beer garden, which occupies a private park in downtown Springfield, offered an eclectic lineup of events and community collaborations, hosting local musicians, food trucks, restaurants, special events, and nonprofit and private companies.

Because of continuing demand for such events, White Lion will present Harvest Nights at 1477 Main St. each Wednesday and Friday from 5 to 10 p.m. from Sept. 4 to Oct. 30. Events will include White Lion Wednesdays, street food Fridays, local musicians and DJs, special evening hookah nights, and a Hop Headz home-brewer collaboration. Follow White Lion Brewing on all social-media platforms for ongoing updates.

“Downtown’s summer beer garden was a huge success,” Managing Partner Ashley Clark said. “We engaged several thousand visitors. A lot of visitors stopped by the beer garden on their way to or coming from other downtown establishments. It also showcased the vibrancy, diversity, and culture that embodies the White Lion brand. The demand and requests for continuance is what led to the decision to extend 17 more days.”

Tower Square ownership, which owns the private park at 1477 Main St., is currently overseeing the buildout of White Lion’s brewery space across the street at Tower Square, 1500 Main St.
