From Clay at Sun King Brewing in Indianapolis:

We've got another new beer coming out this week: Pale Ryder is the final beer in this Summer's Spaghetti Western Trilogy. It's a delicious rye pale that was crafted with Galaxy exclusively hops from Australia. It has a distinctive grapefruit character (But nothing like the combination of hops we use to create next week's beer, Grapefruit Jungle). We've also got Big H: Hefeweizen available in the Tasting Room and the very last of Nelson, so stop in and get it before it's gone....

New in the cellar at the Goose...
Why are all the kids running after that ice cream truck? Because the latest batch of Moylan's Hopsickle is in.

Resistance is futile...but apparently delicious...when it comes from Two Brothers' J Series
