The Brewers

Flat 12 Bierwerks in Indianapolis:  

Be sure to check out our events page for a full list of what we have planned.

Bike Week in the Taproom:
We’re having a “Bike Week” at the brewery this week. Not to be confused with the engine revving, Harley Davidson one in Daytona. Instead it’s the chains and pedal kind. Commuter Connect will be kicking it off on Friday (2/28). They will be set up in the Taproom from 5-7:45pm to help answer questions and get you signed up with their program. More info about Commuter Connect can be found here. Then on Saturday (3/1) we will have the Shamrock Cycles Handmade Bike Gallery on display in the Taproom. Be sure to stop in and check out the showcase of handmade bikes. More info about the gallery can be found here.

Nunmoere Black Release:
Even if the wind chills are below freezing, Spring is in the air – Spring Seasonals that is. Our spring seasonal, Nunmoere Black, is set to release this Sunday, March 2nd. But we’re not just releasing the beer that day. Nope. We’re having a party. A fish fry with Chef Dan’s Southern Comfort Food to be exact. Plus more! See what all we have scheduled for the day here.

Flat Tuesday:
Flat Tuesday is only 2 days after the Nunmoere Release. Doors open at 4pm on Tuesday, March 4th. There will be crawfish races, King Cake, Beads, Beads and more Beads. Plus, we will also be featuring four wacky beer concoctions that are crawling with flavor. Click here to see the beer list.

Keep a lookout on:
· Winter Cycle 4 packs are still available for purchase in the taproom for $10.99.
· March’s Reel-to-Reel is 3/14 and we are going retro. IU Film Archives Library is bringing up a selection of the best of their 48,000+ retro educational films on 16mm film.
· Gravity Head 2014 at New Albanian Brewing is March 14th. If you’ve not seen the beer list you can check it out here.
