From Shane at Daredevil Brewing Co:
Muse Belgian Golden Ale is back! It's one of our most popular special releases and we are happy to see January and the return of Muse. Muse is a golden ale that displays a classic fruity and spicy fermentation character with a backdrop of the highest quality Belgian Pilsner Malt and noble hops for a refreshingly fun, and intriguingly unique balance of inspiration and respect for the classic Belgian Golden Ale style. Muse is a 8.5 percent and 30 IBU special release, and is available on draft throughout the Daredevil distribution footprint of central and southern Indiana. Watch our Twitter and Facebook pages for delivery and tapping announcements.

It is also the home stretch of our anniversary tour. We had a great time last week at Twenty Tap in Indy and at Buckhead Mountain Grill in Jeffersonville. Thank you to everyone who came out. We have four more events over the next week and we hope to get a chance to talk to lots of people who have enjoyed our beers over the last year. There will be a great mix of beers, some that you already know and love, a few new Rare Devil small batch beers not to be missed and a limited number of anniversary imperial pint glasses.

Beer School with Brooklyn Brewery February 4

From Adam at The Dash-In in Ft. Wayne:
This Wednesday (1/22) at 5pm The Dash-Inin Fort Wayne will be tapping 8 beers from Founders Brewing Co. This will be the largest Founders tap takeover in this area in over a year and it features some very special/rare beers. 
Beers to be tapped:
Sweet Repute - Wheat Wine aged for 16 months in maple bourbon barrels and bourbon barrels. ABV: 12.6% *This is Northeast Indiana's only keg of this Backstage Series release...the only other keg in Northern Indiana went to Fiddler's Hearth in South Bend and there were only 8 (1/4 barrel, 7.75 gallon) kegs total sent to all of Indiana...and unfortunately no bottles of this beer made their way to Northeast Indiana so this will be the Fort Wayne area's only opportunity to try this unique brew!
Backwoods Bastard - Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts, a bit of earthy spice, and a scintilla of dark fruit. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate. ABV: 10.2% IBUs: 50 *one of only 2 kegs that made it to Fort Wayne and the other one is gone!
Imperial Stout - Brewed with ten varieties of malted barley, this stout is smooth as silk, yet complex and rich in body. Serve this guy at cellar temperature. Put another log on the fire, sit back and enjoy the friendship of this ultimate winter warmer. ABV: 10.5% IBUs: 90
Nitro Oatmeal Stout - A Founders take on a classic style, brewed with a generous amount of flaked oats, chocolate malt, roasted barley and a healthy helping of Nugget hops, Founders Oatmeal Stout is nitrogen-infused to give it an extra smooth and creamy mouthfeel. An attractive cascade effect gives this beer its forthright visual appeal—and the body and clean flavor delivers on that initial promise. ABV: 4.5% IBUs: 38 *available on draft only
Dirty Bastard - So good it’s almost wrong. Dark ruby in color and brewed with seven varieties of imported malts. Complex in finish, with hints of smoke and peat, paired with a malty richness and a right hook of hop power to give it the bad attitude that a beer named Dirty Bastard has to live up to. Ain’t for the wee lads. ABV: 8.5% IBUs: 50
Centennial IPA - Get ready to bask in the glory of the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the citrus accents from the abundance of dry hopping. This one’s sweet, yet balanced. Malty undertones shake hands with the hop character for a finish that never turns too bitter. ABV: 7.2% IBUs: 65
Porter - Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders’ robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It’s a lover, not a fighter. ABV: 6.5% IBUs: 45
Pale Ale - A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle, this medium-bodied pale ale has a refreshing citrus flavor and a distinctive floral hop aroma due to the aggressive addition of hops during fermentation. You’ll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere. ABV: 5.4% IBUs: 35

From Mark at Lino's in Speedway:
Tap takeover pint night with New Albanian Brewing, Jan. 17, 5:30PM at Lino's. Event page: www.facebook.com/events/539188492844490/.
