Special Request Updates: Bier Brewery and Tomlinson Tap Room Grand Openings

Just got a direct twitter message demanding that I post the tap list for Tomlinson's opening this evening. You only get one, Ms. Crook...

Tonight it one of the biggest drinking nights on the calendar, so it's only fitting that today marks the grand openings of Indianapolis' newest brewery and Indianapolis' newest craft beer bar. Get out there, people! Celebrate our growing beer culture!

  1. I was pretty pumped about the idea and beers of Bier, but that joy pretty much got sucked out of me when I looked at the price list. I understand that it is a small batch operation over there, but $12 growler fills doesn't wet my appetite. I am headed to Barley Island and filling up my growlers for $7 instead. More beer for you guys!

  2. sWhere I come from (chicago)thats pretty cheap for good beer. If its worth it...its worth it.

  3. Sure thing, first anonymous poster. If you were making beer on his scale, you would find the economics a challenge, as well. Good luck to Darren...I am sure you will have more than enough people willing to pay a (still reasonable) price for good craft beer.
