Upcoming Events
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 Mike at Brew Bracket:
Brew Bracket 5: AMBERgeddonBrew Bracket, the only beer tasting event in the US to offer two tasting glasses, IS BACK! The tournament tasting event features 16 unique Amber style beers from local Indiana breweries. Previous event winners including RAM, Barley Island, Bier, and Rock Bottom will be returning with their take on the Amber style, as well as newer breweries to the Indiana beer scene like Bulldog Brewery and Iechyd Da Brewing Company. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Keep Indianapolis Beautiful.

About Brew Bracket:Your ticket puts you in the judging seat. Over the afternoon, you will visit stations to blindly taste two beers at a time, voting for your favorite between the two. In total there will be 15 different stations making up the bracket. The majority vote of the crowd (400 participants) will advance one brewer through the tournament as the Brew Bracket champion.
At the end of the event we'll present the results and reveal all the locations of the participating breweries. For more information, see the about us on our site http://www.brewbracket.com/about/
