I think of particular interest to the veterans of the craft beer game may be the inclusion of 90 Minute (always a favorite) and a nice lineup of Victory's beers, which are new to Indiana.

We really are doing our best to put on a heck of an event, so we hope to see you there.


  1. Sounds like World Class is bringing some good brews. Should be a great festival!

  2. I just sent Mike the Cavalier list, too, which has about 20 different beers on it. It's going to be a good day.

    After getting updates over the last couple of days, I'm going to revise my original estimate of 40-50 different beers to the 60-70 range.

    For instance, we know Barley Island is planning on bringing Sheet Metal Blonde, Dirty Helen Brown, Barfly IPA, and Count Hopula Double IPA. New Albanian has sent its Elector Imperial Red Ale. Upland is bringing their Preservation Pilsner and their Wheat. The Hop Shop is going to be pouring some stuff (I'll probably know later today on that), and we're still figuring out what the others are bringing.

  3. Wow, that list from Cavalier is absurdly awesome! It is so disappointing that I will have to leave around 5ish. Hopefully I can get a couple samples before I check out. Great job so far on this. Really looking forward to seeing everyone again on Saturday, even if it will only be during setup for me.

  4. By the way, Broad Ripple Brew Pub will definitely be there with a couple of quarter barrels of something good Kevin has brewed.

  5. One more beer update: Alcatraz will not be in attendance. However, all I got to say is that I love Ted & Charlie, because Brugge is bringing 2 sixth barrels each of the White, the Black, and the Trippel! Wow.
