Oktoberfest is now on tap at both RAM locations! Also, Longshanks IPA and Rhineland Kolsch are available as seasonal options as well.
Be sure to stop by either RAM location next Thursday the 15th for a special edition coffee-infused porter in commemoration of Bjava Coffee and Tea's 5th Anniversary. Bjava Disorder will blend Bjava's fresh roasted beans with the RAM's medal-winning Total Disorder Porter. This beer will also be making an appearance at Tomlinson Tap Room next week as well!
From Clay at Sun King Brewery in Indianapolis:
Our first Seasonal Beer in our customizable cans was released to Liquor Stores this Week! a limited supply of Oktoberfest cans will be available over the next few weeks at most area liquor stores that carry Sun King. We still have a little Oktoberfest On Tap at the brewery, but after that is gone we'll be releasing the remainder of it in 4 packs in the Tasting Room. We brewed Cowbell: Milk Porter on Tuesday, so it will be available in a few weeks. We're busy gearing up for the Great American Beer Festival in Denver at the end of the month, so we're light on events, but in October we have some fun things planned...
