45 Seats, 2 Locations, 1 Brewery, 1 Bus: KOTBR #100 with New Albanian Brewing Company

We're kind of excited about this one.

To celebrate Hoosier Beer Geek's 100th Beer Roundtable, we are inviting 45 craft beer fans who will pay $40 to join the Knights of the Beer Roundtable as we take a bus trip from Indianapolis to New Albany to eat food and drink beer. We leave from the Sun King Brewery at 135 N. College, Indianapolis at noon on Saturday, March 6, 2010.

We will travel first to New Albanian Brewing Co.'s Bank Street Brewhouse where we will receive a tour and be treated to a lunch of frites and one of the following lunch choices prepared by Chef Josh and his team:
-Croque Madame: Black Forest Ham, Proscuitto, Emmentaler Cheese and Mornay Sauce on Blue Dog Bakery Bread, Topped with a Sunny Side Egg

-15b Porter Beef Stew w/ Whipped Potatoes and Roasted Vegetables

-Steak Frites: Flat-Iron Steak, Truffle Fries, Mesclun, Lemon, Capers

-Lentils En Croute Slow Cooked French Lentils, Winter Vegetables, Puff Pastry, Creme Fraiche

-Asian Style Chicken Wings: Twelve Spicy Wings Served With Bosc Pear and Creme Fraiche

-Certified Angus Burger: 10 Ounce Burger with White Cheddar, Applewood Smoked Bacon and Pomme Frites
After Bank Street, we will travel to New Albanian's Public House & Pizzeria (10th worldwide on Ratebeer.com's Best Beer Bars 2010) on Grant Line Road (formerly Rich O's). At the Public House, we will enjoy the famous Gravity Head festivities: Gravity Head Listings 2009

The bus will return to Indianapolis by midnight. This is going to be pretty informal, so we'll play it by ear.


The $40 ticket includes:
-transportation on a chartered coach bus
-refreshments on the bus
-lunch plus tip at Bank Street Brewhouse

You will be required to select a lunch when purchasing your ticket. One selection per ticket. We'll also request an email address for event updates. And of course, no one under the age of 21 will be admitted.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Friday, January 29th) at 8 AM. We hope you'll join us.
