New in town
From Megan at Indy Brew Bus:
I wanted to let you know of a fun, new way to experience Indianapolis breweries- it's called Indy Brew Bus, a 14-passengar bus that tours various Indianapolis craft breweries. My husband and I have been enjoying all of the breweries that have popped up in the past year or two, but realized there was no easy way, besides renting a private tour bus, to visit them. So, we thought we'd create one ourselves! Each of our tours will visit at least three local breweries and will spend approximately 45 minutes at each location.  We encourage our patrons to buy growlers from the locations and we even have coolers on board to keep them cold while you drink them! Tickets are $30 a person and can be bought on www.indybrewbus.com  Below is a list of the tour times that we will offer. 

Thursdays at 5:30 p.m.
Fridays at 6 p.m.
Saturdays at 12 and 4 p.m.
Sundays at 1 p.m.

At Bars and Restaurants
From Eddie at Sahm's Place in Indianapolis:
The new cooler & taps will be in by the end of next week! We will have 8 more beers available with a couple of rotating selections from our friends at Bier Brewery.

This upcoming Tuesday at 8:30pm we will be hosting 3 Floyds Brewery. Brian Boru, Pride & Joy, Dreadnaught, and JinxProof will all be available! We will have it all on special, so if you haven't had a chance to sample one of these great beers, now is the time.

Upcoming Events
From Mike at Brew Bracket:
Here’s the 101 on our event:Brew Bracket is the only one of its kind, a true tasting tournament. 16 brewers bring a similar style of beer (Wheat for our spring event) and are seeded randomly into a bracket. 400 participants taste beer (blindly, 2 glasses at a time) and vote for their favorites. Over the course of the day winning beers move through the tournament until we crown a champion at the end of the event. 
Here’s why this year is exceptionally awesome:Our 16 brewers are very close to Indianapolis, and we have nearly every new brewer to the scene involved in the event. This includes 5+ breweries that have just started within the last year. It’s an awesome opportunity for beer fans to find out about new breweries and learn more about what they like within the style through the blind tasting. And we’re partnering with local charity, the SCI Hope Fund, to give back to the community as part of the event.

Basic details:Saturday, April 14th from 12:30PM – 5PM
Tickets are $35 each, only 400 available
