Barrel-aged Olaf, Jr. the Bock:  Olaf, Jr. has been resting comfortably in a W.H. Harrison oak bourbon barrel for 9 months, and he's ready to give your taste buds a ride with rich flavors of raisin and plum backed by oak, coconut, and a touch of chocolate from the barrel.

our regulars who are crazy about the Apple Buzz and came out to support
our best selling seasonal beer. We also like to thank the Adrian’s
Orchard for supplying us with the best Apple Cider, and the Greenwood’s
Hool’s your Honey for the great local honey.

Bars, Restaurants, Carryout, & Distributors

From Eric at Zink Distributing:
Goose Island is holding Black Friday release events for Bourbon County Brand Stout and all of its variations. Sara Cleary from Goose Island will be in town to kick off these events and pour samples of their vintage series. She’ll start the day at Kahn’s on Keystone at 9:00am before stopping in at Big Red Liquors on Broad Ripple Ave. at 1:00pm. After that it’s time to kick off the draft parties with Union Jack’s in Broad Ripple and Shoefly Public House in Fall Creek Place.
Bourbon County Brand Stout will also be available at most of your favorite craft friendly liquor stores. Be sure to call ahead to plan your day. In addition to the BCBS family, Goose Island is releasing their latest series of sour beers, Juliet, Halia, Gillian, and Lolita. These beers, known as the “Four Sisters,” are extremely limited. The only advice I can give is happy hunting!
Our friends at Urban Chestnut Brewing Co. in St. Louis are producing wonderful beers. Indianapolis is the only market outside of Missouri to sell Urban Chestnut. Right now we’re featuring their 8 bottle sampler pack. Each one has four different styles with two 16.9 oz. bottles of each style. This round includes:
 Zwickel: A classic German Lager that’s as delicious as it is crisp and thirst quenching.
Hopfen: A Bavarian Style IPA. They use German/European ingredients to make a delicious American Style IPA.
Pierre’s Wit: Urban Chestnut’s take on the classic Belgian Wit. Brewed with locally sourced wheat, this beer pays homage to its namesake, Pierre Celis, the man who revived the modern style known as Belgian Wit.
Winged Nut: A “nutty” beer through and through, it starts with a simple malt base then adds chestnuts before finishing off with a Bavarian Weissbier yeast strain. 
What does this combination of 4 beers mean to you? It means that you’ve got a one-stop package with something for everyone at your Thanksgiving festivities. Where can you find this sampler pack? Find it at one of these locations with more locations coming soon:
Marsh (320 N New Jersey St.)
Marsh (5830 W 86th St.)
Marsh (2350 Broad Ripple Ave.)
Marsh (5151 E 82nd St.)
Kahn’s Fine Wines & Spirits (All 3 Locations)
Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving!
