From Patrick and Beth at Patrick's Kitchen and Drinks in Zionsville:
We tapped a keg of Flat 12 Half cycle and everyone has really enjoyed the 6% super hoppy, citrusy beer, great job guys, the Flat 12 Amber has held it's own, with a nice hoppy finish to malty goodness.
Other taps right now hold People's Hop Killa which has been very well received..We have the Old Rasputin on Nitro,....BBC out of Bloomington's B-town brown is delicious as well.

From the Liquor Stores
From Steve at 21st Amendment in Broad Ripple:
We've got a little bit of Dogfish Head left in stock, including Palo Santo, Midas Touch, Aprihop, and India Brown. I anticipate the amount we have left to last for about another week or so, so this is the last chance for anyone to scoop any of it up before it is officially out of our store. We also have a couple of cases of Hopslam left in stock.

As for new options, we now have Brooklyn Lager in 6-pack cans for $9.99, as well as Boulevard 4-pack bottles of Tank 7 farmhouse ale, Sixth Glass quadruple, Dark Truth stout, and Double-Wide IPA, each for $12.49. On top of that we just began carrying Bee Creek Ale, which is $10.99.

Furthermore, this week I plan to resume our usual Friday beer tastings. I'll be opening up some of the Brooklyn Lager in a can and Bee Creek Ale at 5 o'clock. We may open up one or two more beers as well, depending on who all is around.
