Brew Bracket 5: AMBERgeddon
Brew 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/

From Charles at Six Pack of Stories:
Creative minds from around the world have come together to tell us tales of the world’s finest beverage.  Was it beer that held together the fragile peace of the Cold War? What was the role of beer in the tragedy of Oedipus Rex? If Beer had eyes and ears, what would it be able to say about you? How essential is beer to humanity’s colonization of the stars? These are just a few questions asked and answered in A Six Pack of Stories, a collection of beer-centric short stories made to be read with a beer in hand. 
A Six Pack of Stories is available in print, and Kindle formats, and will come to Nook soon.
