Random Beer Roundup


Patrick at new Zionsville restaurant Patrick's Kitchen and Drinks (47 Boone Village, Zionsville, IN) wrote us about their beer list:
we opened a restaurant in Zionsville and we are fortunate enough to be able to sell the Bloomington Brewing Company beers. They do not want or need distribution north of Monroe County....so I really appreciate the privilege. We use a glycol chiller and a nitrogen mixer in order to serve a quality beverage. We are just a tiny place with 5 taps and we try to have different beers for instance right now we have Blonde Behemoth Barley wine, Gaffel Kolsch, BBC Nitro Stout, BBC Pale, Bell's Amber, and have a 1/6 of Two Brothers Heavy Handed IPA waiting in the wings for the Behemoth to empty out.

  1. Dinner Bell Market, just south of Garfield Park (Southern Ave.) on the West side of Shelby Street, has several cases (24 - 12 oz bottles) of the Sam Adams brewmaster's collection for $12.99 a case. Yep, that's not a typo.

    Granted, it's born on date is Sep 08, but come on -- who cares for that price?! FWIW, the 3 types of beers are Irish Red, Black Lager, and Honey Porter.

  2. Founders Harvest ale...


    I was able to procure a case. I am happy happy.

  3. Just picked up the last Moloko at Goose. Mike, there's one four-pack of Rubaeus left.

  4. Jim you have us to thank for that Moloko. We were there earlier in the day and decided to only buy 1 of the remaining 2 Molokos to allow someone else to try it. Kind of weird that it was you!
