Look for J.W.P. American Stout on draft throughout our distribution footprint of central and southern Indiana starting next week.

From Oaken Barrel Brewing Company:

PumKwan Ale is gone! We have a new seasonal beer, the “Undead Red Ale”.
It is a first beer of its kind we have brewed. We have collaborated with
Dill Hero of the Strange Brew Coffee, and made a red ale infused with
roasted coffee. This red ale has a malty characteristics with hint of
coffee flavor. Yes, this beer does contain caffeine.

Bars, Restaurants, Carryout, & Distributors

From Eric at Zink Distributing:
Zink Distributing is proud to introduce a new player in the Indiana beer scene: Carson’s Brewery out of Evansville, IN. The folks at Carson’s have been hard at work perfecting their unique style of brewing. They tend to stray from the ordinary and put a full flavored twist on the standard beer styles. Be among the first to try these hand crafted wonders. 
E’ville American Wheat: This is a hop-forward American style wheat beer. It hits you up front with hints of grapefruit and citrus from the heavy handed use of American hops but finishes light and refreshing. This well rounded beer makes a great go to option all year long. 
Pagan Pale Ale: Carson’s take on the classic American Pale Ale. Pagan leads with citrusy American hops with notes of pineapple and grapefruit, while still maintaining a solid, bready, malt backbone. The crisp, dry finish on this beer leaves you craving another sip. 
Brown Cow Brown Ale: A nutty, malt-forward brown ale with hints of caramel and chocolate. Carson’s uses a small amount of hops to keep Brown Cow from being overly sweet. Back in Head Brewer John Mills home-brewing days, he took best in show at the Indiana Brewer’s Cup with this recipe!

RIPA Red IPA: A truly Midwestern style IPA with an amber hue. Balance is the keyword here. RIPA has big citrusy American hops that sit atop a dry, malty backbone. The caramel hints that come from the delicate use of crystal malt help showcase the hops without overwhelming your palate.
From Patrick at Patrick's Kitchen & Drinks in Zionsville:
At Patrick's Kitchen and Drinks we are enjoying pouring the following draft beers: Sun King Moonlight Stout,and their El Gallo Negro IPA, Lexington's Bourbon Barrel Ale, Bier's Tripple, and their 80 Schillings Ale..Gaffel Kolsch, La Trappe Quad, Bloomington Brewing Company Ruby Bloom Amber, and People's Hop Killa, and Triton's Railsplitter IPA!
In the wings we have waiting to be tapped a keg of Bier's Pumpkin Porter, Flat-12's Walkabout Pale, BBC's award winning Rooftop IPA, and Daredevil's Carnival...
