From John at Half Moon Brewery in Kokomo:
Half Moon has Summer Wheat on tap.  It reached the final 4 at the 4/14
Brew Bracket event.

A refreshing American Wheat beer brewed with sweet orange peel and coriander.  It has a fresh orange-citrus flavor that balances with the soft spiciness of the coriander.
ABV = 5.1%  IBU=14

From Andrew at Ram Restaurant and Brewery in Indianapolis/Fishers:

Heaven and Hell Party

Residents of both Heaven and Hell will be co-mingling at the RAM Restaurant and Brewery in Indianapolis on May 12th. "What mysterious power would be able to bring Angels and Demons together in peace and harmony?," you ask. "Our 1000th brew, an Imperial Pilsner aged in Chambourcin wine barrels," I say. This aged beauty is going to be served two ways, side-by-side. The barrel-aged version with a touch of grape blending perfectly with the imperial pilsner base will be known as "Heaven-sent", while another version "Hell-bound" will take on a more devilish hue and slight tartness as a result of the addition of Black Currants. With all this tasty brew, we will be hosting a Heaven and Hell themed costume contest with prizes!

What: Heaven and Hell Party and costume contest
Where: Indianapolis RAM Restaurant and Brewery
When: May 12th, 7 p.m.
Why: Because the beer is awesome, and we want to share it with you.
