Congrats to slicknyk for the winning entry:
Brew, brew. Brew bracket, it’s true
No reason to feel blue, or be sad your plans fell through
Local Indy breweries, bring their Pales for you to judge
Try them all, try to be fair, give them all your respect and love
In the end, like the Highlander there can be only one
So send me to the Pale Ale Brew Bracket so I can participate in the fun!
taste. vote. repeat.
Brew Bracket is back for a twist on the classic event, featuring 16 of Indiana's finest Pale Ales. Come join the crowd of 400 for an afternoon of blind, head to head beer tasting. Visit a station, taste two beers, and vote for your favorite across 15 rounds of tournament action. At the end of the day, one brewer will be left standing, the Brew Bracket champion.
The event will feature award-winning pale ales from Flat 12, Upland, Bloomington, Barley Island, Triton, Brugge, Rock Bottom College Park, Half Moon, RAM, Iechyd Da, Three Wisemen, Union Brewing, Indiana City, Rock Bottom Downtown Indy, Peoples, and Evil Czech Brewing.
A portion of ticket sales will be donated directly to People for Urban Progress (PUP), an Indianapolis based non-profit organization that promotes and advances public transit, environmental awareness, and urban design (http://www.peopleup.org/)
This is a 21+ event only. ID is required at the door. Designated driver tickets include free soda and water at the event. We are proud to bring some of the greatest variety in food trucks to our events for anyone looking for a bite to eat during a break from the beer tasting. Come join us for great times, an infamous tweet wall, toe tapping tunes, rocking door prizes, and some of the best pale ales Indiana has to offer.
The VIP session begins at 2PM and features a Q&A and additional sampling of some personal creations from previous Brew Bracket winners. Andrew Castner, head brewer of RAM (and most decorated Brew Bracket brewer) as well as one additional TBD brewer will be participating in the VIP hour before the Pale Ale event. Doors open to all participants at 2:45PM, tasting begins at 3.
