Random Beer Roundup - Abraham Lincoln Collector's Edition

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in beer drinking, and this is your random beer roundup.


Hey look! We're famous! - We've made The Slashfood Ate (8) with our homey (their words, not mine) approach to GABF. Peachy keen, pals!

From Kirk at Mr. G's Liquor:
New this week
Founders Harvest Ale
Founders Old Curmudgen
From KOTBR Jason's random reading (or the Indy Monthly Newsletter):
Tuesday, Oct. 21 - Fletcher Boyd is the guest chef for A Taste of Germany Wine and Beer Tasting at Patrick's Kitchen and Drinks. The evening features German food, four German wines from Carroll Company, and four classic beer styles from World Class Beverage. 6:30 p.m. $30 in advance. $40 at the door. Call 733-8755 for ticket information. 47 Boone Village, Zionsville.
From Elizabeth and Matt at the Old Town Ale House (8657 E. 116th Street Fishers, IN (317) 841-0800):
We've changed a few draft lines...Founder's Pale has been replaced with Founder's Harvest Ale & Guinness has lost it's spot to Brooklyn Brewery's Black Chocolate Stout. Don't forget that all of our pints are available for only $2.75 on Tuesdays & Wednesdays! Founder's Old Curmudgeon has joined the bottle list.
From Mike at J. Gumbo's comes the following Sunday football special:
Indy vs. Green Bay
October 19th, 4 PM
$3 Beer Brats
$3 U-Call-It Pints
This bit of random financial advice forwarded on by Ted at Brugge:
Investment advice from a fund manager.

If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago, you would have $49 left.

With Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left of the original $1,000.

With AIG, you would have less than $15 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer,then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214 cash.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.
Mat at Cavalier dropped a line to remind us that many GABF medal winning beers are readily available in Indiana:
Steelhead Extra Pale Ale from Mad River Brewing Company won gold at the Great American Beer Festival. Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout won a bronze medal in the Imperial Stout category. Both Steelhead and Yeti should be readily available at stores in Indiana with a better beer selection. While people are at it they should try all the other quality brews available form Mad River and Great Divide.
Will do.

Lastly, Ron Smith dropped an email about his latest round of Beer MBA classes. A quick summary:
