From the Brewers
From Bob at Flat12 Bierwerks in Indianapolis:
Flat12 Bierwerks, a craft brewery that opened January 2, 2011, is celebrating its 1st Anniversary on Saturday, the 14th of January. The brewery will tap a special brew called “Winter Cycle”, a Double IPA that comes in at 9.2 ABV/107 IBU.
In addition to the tapping on Saturday, the brewery will hold a cookout, featuring local food, live music and special surprises throughout the day. In the run-up to the Saturday event, Head Brewer Rob Caputo and his staff plan to offer a variety of specialty and barrel-aged beers in the tasting room on Thursday and Friday
From Skip at Fountain Square Brewing Co. in Fountain Square:
On January 6th, First Friday in Fountain Square, we will be tapping our Winter Warmer.  A perfect beer for the time of year.   A dark ale with caramel notes along with a touch of nutmeg and a hint of raspberry.  Deep ruby in color with a tan head, at 6.5% ABV this brew is sure to melt your snowballs.
We're having our Grand Opening Luau on January 21st. from 7pm to 10pm.
The time has finally come for our grand opening.  We've had a month or so to get our feet wet (sometimes literally) and have had some time to brew a few great seasonals in addition to our house lineup.  So now its time to celebrate and we would love to have our community of friends and those new to Fountain Square Brewery to join us for our Winter Luau.  Come dressed for the heat and maybe you'll win a marginally valuable prize!  Oh, and there will also be some great Island eats and music! 

From Ryan at Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Co. in Broad Ripple, Indianapolis:
Come by Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company and enjoy our newest Seasonal creation, King Solomon’s Imperial Stout! You can get it for $3.00 a pint every Wednesday. Also to give all of you beer lovers a heads up, we will be tapping our next seasonal on Tuesday January 17th. It will be the Lombardi’s Super Baltic Porter.

  1. The Winter Warmer at Fountain Square was good - but I could only do it in small doses. There's a whole lot going on in that beer. But worth trying.

  2. This is like your 12th online persona in the 6 years I've known you.
