At the Bar

From Jordan at the Beer Sellar in Indianapolis:
Now on Tap:

Bells Best Brown-hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has the depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy
Bells Third Coast Old Ale-offers a crisp, dry bitterness with a mixture of floral & herbal aromas. PERFECT for a FALL Day. Only $ 4 a pint. 
Boulevard Single Wide IPA-A golden colored beer with a prominent flowery, grapefruit hop aroma, a moderate caramel malt flavor and a dominant hop bitterness and flavor. 
Sun King Wee Mac- easy drinking brown ale that has a nice hazelnut character with rich toffee undertones. 
Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout-luscious deep dark chocolate flavor through a blend of specialty roasted malts 
Rogue Dead Guy Ale- Deep honey in color with a malty aroma and a rich hearty flavor. 
Sam Adams Winter Lager- The cinnamon, ginger, and hint of citrus from the orange peel blend with the roasty sweetness of the malts to deliver a warming, spicy flavor. 
Enjoy this Saturday for our Halloween Bash $3 Pints of Dogfish Head Punkin Ale and New Holland Ichabod.
