HBG4 featuring... Cavalier Distributing

The lineup of beers at Hoosier Beer Geek's Fourth Anniversary Party continues. And while we are working hard to bring in as many Indiana beers as possible, we couldn't help but have some out of state guests. The first guests we are announcing at HBG4 come to us from...

Cavalier Distributing
Indianapolis, Indiana

We want to thank Mat and everybody at Cavalier for their contribution to HBG4. I think everybody will agree that this is a stellar lineup.

Stone Brewdog Bashah (bottles)
Style: Black Belgian Double India Pale Ale

Two outstanding breweries. Five different hops. 8.6% ABV. What's not to love about this beer? Hoosier Beer Geek was very excited to hear that this mash up of a beer would be making its way to our party. Click on the link above to read more about this collaboration brew.

Great Divide Double Wit (bottles)
Style: Belgian-style Witbier

From the Great Divide website:
"Double Wit is our more muscular take on the beloved white ales of Belgium. Unmalted wheat and Belgian malted barley give the beer a light body and straw hue, while coriander and curaçao provide the traditional notes of spice and light acidity. This cloudy, deceptively drinkable creation should be enjoyed without the addition of fruit. 8.1% ABV."

Please remember that the list is tentative and subject to availability. We promise to keep you informed of any changes.

About HBG4:
It will be held Saturday, August 28th, starting at 6pm. Sun King Brewing will again be hosting us at their brewery at 135 N. College Avenue, Indianapolis. Tickets are $30 (plus $1.99 for online fees) for regular tickets and $20 (plus $1.99 for online fees) for designated drivers. Tickets are available online only and are in limited supply. And yes, the tickets are on sale now.

If you didn't attend last year, you can see what you missed here. But if you did attend last year, you'll find it to be similar. Here is what we have so far (please note that all of this is subject to change).

Regular attendees will receive a commemorative tasting glass that can be used to sample various quality beers from our favorite Indiana breweries as well as a few other breweries. Additionally, you'll be able to select a few larger pours of your favorite beers. Designated drivers will have a selection of non-alcoholic beverages such as soda, pop, cola... whatever regional term you like. And bottled water, of course.

All attendees will get to enjoy food from The Tamale Place. Those of you who have been know how good their food is. And those of you who have not been are in for a treat. There will be a variety of tamale flavors to sample, including vegetarian friendly options.

There will also be chips and salsa and such for your enjoyment all night as well.

And what's a party without gifts? And by gifts, I mean us giving stuff to you! That's right, prizes and giveaways and all sorts of stuff.

We're still filling in all the details, but if you've been to our events, you know it is a good time. And all tickets will be sold online. Tickets are not available at Sun King nor will they be available at the door. So don't miss out.

We appreciate that you follow us for the latest and craziest in the Indiana craft beer world. And we hope you'll come out and celebrate with us our fourth year of tomfoolery.
