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.

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
