A bounty of American Hops delivers the signature clean and crisp finish of a perfectly balanced West Coast style IPA.

A delicate Belgian perfume of pears and apples compliments complex spicy phenolics and lightly sweet alcohol with an inspiring clean, bright finish.

From Cari at Upland Brewing Co.:

Some of you may have heard the rumors, and I'm happy to say it is true: Upland Brewing Company, in celebration of our 15th anniversary, has revived Champagne Velvet, a pre-prohibition style lager that was most popular from the turn of the century into the 1950s. At one point it was the 7th largest brewed beer in the United States. It was revived a couple of times since, and we've decided to bring it back. On April 6, we will launch "CV", as we call it, in the Terre Haute market, and throughout April it will ship to Indianapolis and Bloomington. Check back at http://champagnevelvet.com/ as this great project blossoms.
We have a couple of seasonals releasing soon, as well.
First off, Ard Ri, or the "High King," is in stock and ready to be picked up for St. Patrick's Day. Ard Ri Imperial Red Ale is our answer to an Irish St. Patty's beer: a nice hazy ruby color and a solid malt backbone gets a punch of hops, raising the IBUs to 77 and ABV is 9.3%. Ard Ri is available in 22 oz bottles and draft.
Secondly, in May, we will have a brand new seasonal: Campside Session IPA.

Beer Events/Fundraisers

Hoosier Beer Geek's Inaugural Pint Night

We're rolling out a new Hoosier Beer Geek event for the first time this month. We're calling it HBG Pint Night, and we hope to make it a regular event. 
So join us at the Mass Ave Pub at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 28. At this first Pint Night, our featured beer will be Founders All Day IPA, which will run you $3.50 per pint for the night.
What's the purpose of Pint Night? To provide the community with pints at a great price and, if you're interested in learning, to educate you about the particular beer on tap. In fact, we'll provide an information sheet on the beer and welcome your suggestions for which beers we should feature at future HBG Pint Nights. So come on out and enjoy some great beer and conversation with us.

Bike to the Ballpark with Sun King Brewing

On Thursday, April 4th, 2013 Sun King will host the 3rd Annual Bike to the Ballpark. The event begins with a pre party in the south lot of Sun King from 4-6pm.

"Victory Field is such a great venue to take in a game and we look forward to this event every year because it marks the coming of Spring," said Sun King owner/brewer Dave Colt.  "It's also an opportunity to promote bicycling and get people out to enjoy more of what Indy has to offer."

The 3rd Annual Bike to the Ballpark event will take place on Thursday, April 4th, 2013 for the Indianapolis Indians' season opening game.  Cyclists will have the opportunity to meet up in the Sun King south parking lot for an escorted ride through downtown lead by Mayor Greg Ballard and his team and then enjoy the first baseball game of the season.  Before the ride, individuals can purchase a pint of Indians Lager, the official craft beer of the Indianapolis Indians, and snack on food by Nacho Mama's and Groovy Guys Fries.  Mayor Ballard will also be speaking about the evolution of biking in Indianapolis.

Sun King once again has partnered with the Indianapolis Indians and IndyCog for this community event.  New partners to this years event NUVO, The Mass Ave Criterium, and The Handlebar.
