Bruegala 2015 Press Release


From the library of the Baron; which smells, oddly, of baseball glove oil.

My Honorable Bruegalites,

My Mischief Makers have been toying and teasing you with mentions of Big Revelations coming soon. I asked them not to, but they tend to do whatever brings a smile to their faces. Please don’t blame me for any inner turmoil that they may have caused you. However, I do say, the news I am here to announce is, in a word, PHENOMENAL.

Due to the continued support of you, my dear Bruegalonians, we need to expand our operations. I am here to publicly proclaim that the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees are going to be moving Bruegala to the Corn Crib in Normal! We have been working tirelessly with the Illinois Corn Farmers and the Corn Belters to analyze multiple layouts of their facilities (the possibilities make me giddy); to take thermal imagery of their ice machines (a chilly sub-0 degrees Celsius); and my minions have gone so far as to test their field soil (its still Astroturf).

We look forward to a great relationship with the Corncrib and this exciting new venue! Bruegala will be held on August 28-29th. In the coming days, we will be releasing more information, including band line-ups, food vendors, special events, and so much more! Make sure to check our media outlets for more information!

Information in brief (not in briefs, that would just be awkward),

WHO: Bruegala XVI
WHAT: Charity Beer and wine tasting
WHERE: the Corn Crib – 1000 W Raab Rd, Normal, IL 61761
