From Local Sources
INDIANAPOLIS — Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch and the Indiana Office of Tourism Development announced that voting is now open for the 2018 Best of Indiana people's choice campaign, where Hoosiers can vote for Indiana’s Best State Parks and Recreation Areas, Best Museums, and Best Burgers.
Both Brew, a restaurant in Jasper, and Patoka Lake are among the nominees.
Brew, located at 408 Main Street, is in the running for Best Burger, a category that features 32 burgers across Indiana. The 8-ounce Brew Burger includes smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, coffee barbeque sauce, and is topped with a brioche bun and a perfectly crispy onion ring.
Owners Barry Dunlop and Josh Premuda said, “We’ve been overwhelmed with the support of the community since opening Brew. It’s been a joy to open the doors every day. Our Brew Burger has been our number one seller and continues to be the popular pick. We built Brew to be a place that people congregate at and we’ve enjoyed seeing people use it as such.”
With 26,000 acres of land and water, Patoka Lake is a fine example of lake ecology. Nominated for Best State Parks and Recreation Area, the 8,800-acre lake provides habitat for freshwater jellyfish and bald eagle nesting sites. River otters and osprey were reintroduced at Patoka by the DNR. The property is home to one of only two resident, non-releasable bald eagles at a DNR state park or reservoir.
Nominees for all three categories were recommended by members of Indiana’s travel, tourism, and hospitality industry. VisitIndiana.com/Fall is a companion site to VisitIndiana.com, the official state travel website where discounts, trip ideas, and helpful tips are easily accessible. Votes will be counted until Oct. 27 and the winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
