Upcoming Events
From Brent at Tuxedo Park Brewing Supply in Fountain Square, Indianapolis:
Join us at the shop for our First Annual GassenSale (that means Alley Sale) on Saturday, October 27th from 11-5! We will be slashing prices on tons of items, from equipment (new and used), hops, grain, and anything else you can think of (and perhaps some you can't). This is a one day only event for these big time deals. We'll also be brewing, and we'll have some burgers and sides for anyone who drops by.  We are located at 1139 Shelby Street (alley suite) in Historic Fountain Square, just south of downtown!

From Jason at Tuxedo Park Brewing Supply in Fountain Square, Indianapolis:
Midwestern Order of Nin-Kasi (M.O.N.K.)
The 2012 M.O.N.K. Chili Bowl is upon us!  This is a beer and chili competition combined. The rules are simple:
The beer must have a chili ingredient in it somehow. Wait, what?  That's right, mash with some beans, throw in a pepper or two and a squeeze of lime. Okay, maybe not all of those but you get the point.  The chili must have either a beer ingredient or beer in it. That's it, it's that simple.  You can enter one or both. The winner of the big ol' chili trophy is based on the total score.  Dave Kern was the winner last year. .. Can he be defeated?
See rules and details on the Facebook page:
All proceeds benefit the Order and support their endeavor to make awesome home brew!  Prices are as follows:
Non-Members: $10
Members: $5
Enter beer/chili: (1) Free
Enter Both:  (2) Free
Buy tickets in person at Tuxedo Park Brewers Supply or at the door.  But please RSVP if you intend to come!

From Charles at A Six Pack of Stories:
With the submissions deadline just days away, the brewing phase for A Six Pack of Stories is nearly finished. Creative writers from several continents have put their ideas into the mash and boiled them into entertaining and artful tales that tell the story of mankind’s experience with our favorite fermented beverage. What remains now is to add some editorial yeast in fermentation and package the finished brew in paperback and electronic carriers. (Are we taking brewing/writing analogy too far? Too bad, ‘cause the connection of beer and the written word is what this is all about!)
What styles can you expect in this six pack when you pop the caps? We need a little time after the submissions window closes this Friday to make final selections, but you’ll definitely be drinking everything from humor, to horror, to literary fiction, to science fiction.
If there are any beer loving writers—or maybe writing-loving beer drinkers—out there who haven’t submitted stories yet, we’re making last call. So put the finishing touches on your masterpiece, check the submission guidelines at www.6packstories.com one more time, and send it to storybrewhouse@gmail.com by Friday, October 26th.
For those of you who aren’t word crafters, your roles in this story are yet to come, and it’s the best part! Expect to see A Six Pack of Stories on tap in the coming months. If you’ve been good girls and boys, we’ll publish in time for Santa to drop it in your Christmas stocking!  

In the meantime, like us on Facebook (facebook.com/ASixPackOfStories) and follow us onTwitter (@SixPackStories) to keep up to date.
