From Kara at Flat 12 Bierwerks:  

Lots of things going on here at Flat 12. Here is a little snippet on what’s happening.

Many of us here have just returned from our launch in Louisville. Our launch was well received and many seemed very enthusiastic about our product. Check out some of the pics here. With our Louisville launch came equally exciting news. We announced our lease agreement and intent to establish a location on the riverfront in downtown Jeffersonville, Indiana. The location, at 130 W Riverside Dr., will feature a taproom spotlighting Flat 12 brewery creations.

The list is up and is nothing short of awesome. Our guys in the brewhouse have taken on new identities, donned capes and masks, and enrolled themselves in the school of Super High-flying Mexican beers. Each of the guys who brew and package the beer have taken on new identities and created a beer especially for this occasion of WinterFest. Click here to see the full lineup.
