On Saturday, November 21, from 2 pm to 5 pm, Lafayette Brewing Company will be conducting a Timothy Leary-esque experiment called the Alpha Acid Test. They have brewed a 60 IBU ale that received one hop addition at 60 minutes in the kettle. They put it into 10 kegs and firkins, leaving one beer as is and dry hopping the other nine with nine different hop varieties.
Are you tripping yet?
So you'll get the chance to explore the psychedelic differences between the hop varieties. You can enjoy this unique event, complete with a commemorative tasting glass, LBC raffles, and munchies, for the low, low price of $20.
Need a miracle? Or two?
You don't need to stand outside a parking lot trying to trade a grilled cheese for a ticket. We want to hook you up! It's time for a giveaway!
We have two tickets to LBC's Alpha Acid Test. Like most of our previous giveaways, we will randomly select a commenter to this post. All you need to do by noon on Monday, November 16th is leave your first name and last initial and answer this question:
If you were to live in one Indiana city or neighborhood, based solely on proximity to breweries, craft beer bars, and/or beer stores, what city or neighborhood would that be?
Again, you need to comment by 12pm EST, Monday, November 16th. We will announce the winner shortly after and will make arrangements to get the tickets to you.
