Wilkes, the Shack Shakers are a four-man wrecking crew from the South whose explosive interpretations of the blues, punk, rock and country have made fans, critics and legions of potential converts into true believers. You don't want to miss this band! Show time 9 pm.

From Eric at 21st Amendment in Broad Ripple:New in the cellar at Goose the Market...
Wisconsin's Tyranena may still be new to Indiana, but they so totally get us. Hoosiers like pirates, and so, logically, hate scurvy. That's just the first reason we like Tyranena's IPA brewed with orange peel. Their brewmaster is seen as first mate(y) on the label of their Scurvy, and it tastes good, too.Avarently, sving is uvon us...so it's time for delicious Avril from Dupont, a farmhouse ale that verfectly fitting for svring.We give a gold star to North Coast's Blue Star, an unfiltered American wheat beer. Summertime, and the livin' is easy.Oh, this Samurai comes in a six pack...not Seven Samurai...but still, it's refreshing and goes down easy. Well done, Akira Kurosawa (and Great Divide).
Stop by your local 21st Amendment to get ready for Dark Lord Day 2010. To help you warm up your palate we're running a special on all Three Floyds 6 packs. Don't forget to impress your out of state beer geeks with some wonderful local products. I'd suggest the Upland Variety pack and a few random six packs of Barley Island and Oaken Barrel. See Ya in Munster!
From Ron Smith:
Guided Beer Vacations to Belgium and Germany!
Now through the end of April (about the next 2 weeks) is the timeframe where I need to get firm commitments from people. You can read about my Belgium Trip here (http://www.beermba.com/
belgium-beer-vacations.php) and my Germany Trip here (http://www.beermba.com/ germany-beer-vacations.php). There is also some general information here (http://www.beermba.com/beer- vacations.php). These are great trips designed to maximize the enjoyment of beer lovers that want to see these parts of the world without all the stress, planning, etc. While being primarily beer-focused, we also break it up and visit many of the usual tourist sites as well. Thus, even non-beer lovers will really enjoy them, but the true beer lover will be in heaven on these trips.
