From the Brewers
From John at Half Moon Brewery in Kokomo:
Old Ben Brown Ale (Seasonal)

This is a medium bodied beer with nutty and roasted malt flavors.  It’s balanced well with the hops and goes down smooth and easy.  This beer goes great with a steak or a burger!  This beer won medals at the Brewer's Cup this year.  A bronze medal in the American Ale category, and a silver medal in the English-style Brown Ale category.  ABV = 5.85%   OG = 1.059    IBU = 26

From Clay at Sun King Brewing in Indianapolis:

We've got some new beers coming out and a lot of fun things happening in August! We've got Oktoberfest and Big H Hefeweizen bubbling away in the fermenter, as well as the third and final installment in our Spaghetti Western themed Hop Trilogy: Pale Ryder... We're brewing Grapefruit Jungle next week and have been fortunate enough to score enough hops to make a full 60 bbl batch thanks to our friends at Great Fermentations and Oaken Barrel!
