Flat 12 Bierwerks in Indianapolis
First Friday’s at Tom Tap:
First Friday events are happening all over Indy, and it can be pretty hard to choose where you want to spend it. So, here is your chance to start it off early, NOON to be exact. Stop in Indy’s City Market and venture up to the Mezzanine Level of the Historic Market House (south west corner) and check out Tomlinson Tap Room. For April’s First Friday – next weekend – we will be tapping a version of our collaboration beer with Black Acre. So, what is this tasty beer you should ask for? Find out here.

Contest currently in progress at Flat 12:
Have you stopped by the Taproom lately? If you’ve not, pencil it into your weekend plans. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to tell us WHAT YOU WANT TO DRINK! That’s right, a few weeks ago we challenged you to put your thinking caps on and submit your own wacky ideas for a beer. So, what do we plan to do with these ideas? In May/June we will pick 8-10 ideas and brew them for this year’s Indiana Microbrew Festival at Opti Park in Broad Ripple on July 19. Want to get a jump start? Click here for more info and to view the layout of the submission form.
