We have been very keen to let a place get up and running before rendering judgment about a new bar, brewery, or restaurant around town. Flat 12 will be approaching its one year anniversary this month, and I think they have come into their own in that time frame. Flat 12 makes six house beers and what seems to be an unlimited amount of variations on those beers. They also brew a huge handful of seasonal beers to go along with those house beers and house variations. Brewers Rob and Josh seem to be able to come up with something new and interesting for any occasion. This was just showcased with their 12 Beers of Christmas, which showcased twelve different holiday-themed beers with holiday ingredients.
Flat 12 up to this point has been on-premises sales only. Their tap room is available for pints, growlers, and kegs. They have their beer all over Indiana as well. If you follow them on twitter (@flat12bierwerks), there has been some chatter about a bottling line coming in soon as well.
