Upcoming Events
From Kyle at Kahn's Fine Wines in Indianapolis:
Indiana Beer Tasting : Friday, July 13th : 5-7p
This one is at Keystone and will obviously be focused on Indiana craft. Rita Kohn from NUVO will also be in attendance promoting her book on Indiana beer. And as some of you may have heard, I will be leaving the company. Next week will be my last full week, but this will be my last event here so it'd be great to see as many of you as possible.

Hoppy Birthday : Saturday, July 28th : 5-7p
This was our most highly attended beer event ever. It seems that people enjoy hops... Well, we're doing it again and this is open to any and all interestingly hopped beers or any style. We'll obviously rely heavily on pales and IPAs, but everything is welcome if it has any sort of unique hop-related attribute. Last year we tried to get as nerdy with it as possible by listing the hop varieties and educating people as much as we could.
From Brandon at Midwest Sports Complex:
We at Midwest Sports and Social Complex are putting together a craft beer fest scheduled for July 21st. We are selling tickets for $35 per person for unlimited sampling. Additionally there will be a professional beach volleyball tourney running adjacent to the beer fest.  Additional information will be available soon.
