Scenes from a Tapping: New Albanian Hoptimus at Barley Island Broad Ripple

Where: Barley Island Restaurant and Brewhouse (701 Broad Ripple Ave., Indianapolis, 317.257.5600)

Who: New Albanian Owner and Publican Roger Baylor

Why: This was the first and only keg of New Albanian's Hoptimus to reach Indianapolis' bars.

What: According to Cavalier Distributing's Mat Gerdenich, once New Albanian reaches 40 taps handles in the Indianapolis area (they are currently at 25), we'll see Hoptimus at all 40 of those bars. 40 kegs of Hoptimus comes out to basically one brewers batch of this fine Hopslam-like Imperial IPA.

When: The beer went on Wednesday, Decemeber 9th at 6:30, and will be at Barley Island until supplies last.

Also worth noting: Barley Island plans to hold regular guest-tapping events at the Broad Ripple location, so stay tuned to our very own Random Beer Roundup and the Barley Island twitter account for further information.

  1. It's also very reasonably priced at $5/goblet.

    In fact, everything on tap at Barley Island is very reasonably priced!
