Join us and some of our closest friends in the craft brewing industry for a special night at Conner Prairie History Park to learn about and celebrate the rich tradition of Indiana craft brewing – past and present.  The event is put on by Conner Prairie’s young professional group, the Horizon Council, and all proceeds go to supporting the mission of Conner Prairie. 
Typical of Conner Prairie, you will learn about craft brewing history “in ways that textbooks cannot” through interactive experiences such as tastings from us and over ten other local brewers, seeing the craft brewing process from live demos performed by Tuxedo Park, and listening to local brewers tell their unique stories in a panel discussion – “Brewer Innovation: A taste of the past, present and future.” 
If you enter in our exclusive code TUXEDO20 in to their ticket registration form found at www.connerprairie.org/historyontap.aspx you will receive 20% off your ticket(s) purchased.

Indiana Summer Beer Class with Master Cicerone Rich Higgins

Monday, June 3, 2013
6:00-7:30 PM
Tickets: $25
Tomlinson Tap Room
222 E. Market St., Mezzanine Level, Indianapolis, IN 46204
One of five Master Cicerones in the country, Higgins is an experienced teacher, beer lecturer, and beer traveler. He will lead a fun and informative tasting of six beers as an exploration of three summery styles of beer -- pilsner, Belgian farmhouse, and India pale ale. In Europe, each of these styles was traditionally brewed to slake the thirst in warmer seasons. Higgins will explain the historical and cultural background of each style, and the tasting will feature two Indiana- brewed craft beers from each style to illustrate the artistic and stylistic differences.
Higgins joins the Tomlinson Tap Room to present the event. Located on the mezzanine level of the Indianapolis City Market, the Tap Room is Indiana?s hub for fresh, local beer, pouring the delicious beers of the Brewers of Indiana Guild.
Featured pilsners -- real golden lagers with nuance, personality, and peppery, herbal hops:
• Fountain Square Workingman's Pilsner
• Three Floyds Jinx Proof
Featured Belgian-style farmhouse ales -- with flavorful, rustic, Belgian yeasts and a sparkling, dry finish:
• New Albanian Black & Bluegrass
• Bloomington Brewing Biere de Mars
Featured American IPAs -- built around bold malts and citrusy, floral hop aromas, and so much more than just brash bitterness:
• Daredevil Lift Off IPA
• Oaken Barrel Superfly IPA
 Tickets cost $25, and include tastes of 6 beers, plus a pint of your favorite choice after the tasting. Soft pretzels, chips, and popcorn will also be served. Tickets are more information are available at: http://www.richhiggins.com.
The Indiana capital is one of several stops on Higgins?s Summer Tour of Beer Events, in which he is hosting beer events in June in several cities, culminating in New York City with a ?Bootcamp? the day before the Brewers Association?s SAVOR event, the nation?s premier beer and food pairing event. Higgins is based in San Francisco.
Higgins was the third person to earn the title Master Cicerone; he brewed professionally for eight years and owns the consultancy, Consultant à la Bière. Master Cicerone is the highest credential in beer service, akin to the title of Master Sommelier in wine service. It is administered by the Cicerone Certification Program, and those who achieve this certification possess encyclopedic knowledge of beer and highly refined tasting ability.
