Lafayette's 2011 Winter Warmer

Lafayette Brewing Company held its annual Winter Warmer this past Saturday. A dozen Indiana breweries set up shop in LBC's second floor entertainment venue and served big beers to about 300 individuals. A sixth barrel of Dogfish Head's Olde School Barleywine was also being sampled. And members of the Tippecanoe Homebrewers Circle were also in attendance, giving samples, and talking shop. In addition to three hours of tasting, there was live music, tasty barbecue, free giveaways, and keg lifting competitions. And to top it off, Greg Emig paid for local taxi rides to insure that everybody arrived home safe. A top notch event! Tickets sell out in an hour, so if you have interest, keep an eye out at the LBC website or their Twitter stream next fall. Here are some select images (from my phone because Rod forgot his camera...):

HBG's Rod (without a camera), Broad Ripple's Kevin, and the guys from Back Road

Live music (People's Chris Johnson played the sound check and sat in with the band later in day; who knew he played banjo?)

Post-WW2011: LBC's Greg talking to Bloomington Brewing Company's Dustin and BRBP's Kevin; Mad Brew's Blaine is in the background doing his shake weight impersonation.
