Random Beer Roundup - The Be My Valentine Edition

Which of you lucky ducks got tickets to the Lafayette Winter Warmer this Saturday?  You'll see a few Knights there, so be sure to say hello!

If there is something coming up that is not listed, we would love to hear about it. News, reviews, info, etc., to share for our next Random Beer Roundup can be submitted to hoosierbeergeek@gmail.com. Don't see your favorite craft beer establishment? Let them know you'd like to see them here! Work for an establishment that serves craft beer? We want to hear from you too!

From the Brewers:

From Andrew at Ram Brewery in Indianapolis/Fishers:
RAM Small Ale Competition

We would like to challenge you, the Homebrewer, to brew the best Small Ale that you can create!   Check out https://sites.google.com/site/ramsmallale/ for more details.

From Charles at Upland Brewing Company  in Bloomington/Indianapolis:
Help us pick the winners in the first ever Upland Facebook Film Fest! It starts with Comedy this Saturday at noon. We'll post links to three films on a Facebook event page, accessible through the main Upland Facebook page. Make a post on the event page telling us your favorite, along with any commentary you want to share (keep it positive and fun, please). After a week, we'll tally up the votes, add them to our judges' votes, and announce the winner! (Head Brewer Caleb Staton, President Doug Dayhoff, and Media Master Matthew Berghs are our judges, in case you were wondering.)
We'll make a new event page for Documentaries on Feb 19, and a final page for Music Videos on the 26th, so be sure to check back in to contribute to all three categories!

Six out of six Upland brews (Wheat Ale, Dragonfly IPA, Helios Pale Ale, Rad Red Amber, and Komodo Dragonfly) submitted to Indiana Artisan were accepted by the jury, making Upland the first of, hopefully, many breweries to join the organization! Indiana Artisan is an organization that supports our state's entrepreneurs who make high-quality crafts, foods, and beverages.
