    -Local organizations are encouraged to design their own events for BCBW.
    -We want a focus on our fantastic Indiana beer heritage and growing industry.
    -Possibilities include some of the ideas below - but it's all up to you.  If you have events scheduled for the week feel free to make them part of BCBW.  (I'm personally hoping for an Indiana IPA event - oh yes!)
