From John at Half Moon Brewery in Kokomo:

Honey Rye - (seasonal)
The infamous Honey-Rye is back!!! It's soft honey aroma will entice your senses and pave the way for the light sweet taste with a velvety smooth and creamy mouth-feel.  It finishes slightly spicy and dry due to the copious amount of rye malt.  Truly a delightful beer with a delightful bite.

At Bars and Restaurants
From Eddie at Sahm's Place in Indianapolis:
We are working on making our craft beer rotation bigger and better! We are adding 6 more taps giving us 14 total craft selections and allowing us to always run atleast 10 Indiana made beers, and also adding a new walk in cooler to store more product and more bottle and can selections. 
Our goal has always been to serve craft beer the right way. Stored at the right temperature, rotated properly, balanced selection, seasonal tastes, and proper glassware to boot. The brewers around the state have stepped up their game so we figured we would have to do the same! 
This week we will be taking off trivia due to Valentine's day, but next week will be Flat12 with Mark...always some great selections when he comes in! On wednesday we will have our Wednesday Night Dart Tournament which has no entry fee and gives a $50 gift card to the winner.
