Farmgirl is a classic example of a Saison running at 5.9% ABV, 19 IBUs and 3.5 SRM. She is well balanced and slightly tart and peppery, and she's very thirst quenching with a slight sourness. She will satisfy your every desire, as far as a nice Saison goes.
Calypso IPA weighs in at 7% ABV, "enough" IBUs, and "beautiful" on the SRM scale. We used 95% of a new hop called Calypso and 5% of other sticky, resiny, stinky leafy non-smokable hops. As with all of our biers, Calypso has a nice malt backbone to prevent this beauty from coming across thin and watery. We used a brand new space aged brewing technique to ensure perfect balance and harmony.
Please remember that this list is tentative and subject to change based on availability. We will keep you updated if anything changes.
It will be held Saturday, August 27th, starting at 6pm. Sun King Brewing will again be hosting us at their brewery at 135 N. College Avenue, Indianapolis. Tickets are $30 (plus $1.99 for online fees) for regular tickets and $15 (plus $1.99 for online fees) for designated drivers. Tickets are available online only and limited to just 150 paying customers. Like beer festivals? Don't like crowds? This is your event. And yes, the tickets are on sale now.
If you didn't attend last year, you can see what you missed here. But if you did attend last year, you'll find it to be similar. We can't promise that Jason will be performing from Cats (or will have a mustache). But here is what we have so far (please note that all of this is subject to change).
Regular attendees will receive a commemorative tasting glass that can be used to sample various quality beers from our favorite Indiana breweries as well as a few other breweries. Additionally, you'll be able to select a few larger pours of your favorite beers. Designated drivers will have a selection of non-alcoholic beverages such as soda, pop, cola... whatever regional term you like. And bottled water, of course.
All attendees will get to enjoy food from Papa Roux. Menu coming shortly. There will be vegetarian options.
And what's a party without gifts? And by gifts, I mean us giving stuff to you! That's right, prizes and giveaways and all sorts of stuff.
We're still filling in all the details, but if you've been to our events, you know it is a good time. And all tickets will be sold online. Tickets are not available at Sun King nor will they be available at the door. So don't miss out.
