The folks organizing the Brewers Cup are looking for a few volunteers on Sunday to help organize submissions for next months event. Lunch and beer will be provided.

Contact Chief Steward, John Morrical at jmorrica@sbcglobal.net or 317 283-6344 to volunteer.

From Mat at Cavalier Distribution:
New in in the warehouse late Thursday (so late that none made it on trucks for Friday deliveries) the Thirsty Dog Labrador Lager. Look for it next week on shelves in places that sell better beer. This traditional German Lager is brewed with all German grain & yeast. Very drinkable. ABV=6%, IBU's=27. This thirst quencher will be available all year round and joins Old Leghumper (porter), Hoppus Maximus (amber) Siberian Night (imp stout) and Raspberry Ale in the everyday Thirsty Dog Brewing line up. Expect Barktoberfest and Pumpkin Ale (brewed with pumpkins grown locally in Northern Ohio) to be seasonal releases in bottles this fall as well. http://www.thirstydog.com/
