Flat 12 Bierwerks in Indianapolis:

What would you like to drink:
Our brewers are always thinking outside of the box and some just live outside of it. I mean you can’t find a Mudbug Amber, Flan Porter or Cucumber Kölsh at every brewery. And while our brewers have an assembly line of wacky new beers they want to try, we want to know what you want. So here’s your challenge, or better yet chance, to tell us what you want to drink. Starting now and running until early June there will be a submission box in the Taproom for you to submit your own fun ideas for a beer. So everyone put their thinking caps on and get creative. Want to know what we have planned for 8-10 lucky submissions? Click here and find out.

Indy Eleven Sponsorship:
Just in case you missed the news last week and because we are still pretty excited, we wanted to let you know again about the partnership between Indy Eleven and us. That’s right, Flat 12 will be the official local craft beer of Indy Eleven in 2014. Their first match is only a few weeks away. Are you going? You can check out their complete schedulehere and check out or recap here.
(Please contact me if you would like our official press release again.)

Pint Night at Lino’s:
This Friday we will be at Lino’s Coffee Italian Café in Speedway. Been there before? Well now is a good time to visit – pretty soon it will be crawling with race fans (two races this May, yo!). Lino’s is not your average, every day cafe by the way. It happens to be connected to Dallara’s American IndyCar Production Facility. Needless to say, it feels uniquely Indianapolis. Check out what Flat 12 pints will be available here.

Keep a look out on:
· Still want to try the Crapshoot Indiana Common - Black Acre Collaboration beer? It’s on tap now at Mass Ave Pub for their Judon’t Kno Trivia. (Trivia starts at 8:30pm)
· Pub Club at Elbow Room Pub. On April 2nd Flat 12 will be the beverage of choice. For more information and how to purchase tickets click here.
· First Friday’s at Flat 12. In April we will have artist, Dustin Royal. More details coming soon.

From Eric:

"This Saturday, March 22nd, I'll be at Big Red Liquors in Broad Ripple from 11-1 pouring a selection of tasty beers from our portfolio. The featured player will be Whitsun Wheat Ale from Arcadia Ales, our newest brewery. It's an unfiltered wheat made with Michigan honey, a hint of coriander, and a touch of orange peel Nothing says, "Bring on the sun," better than this little 12oz can of deliciousness!

The entire Arcadia lineup is currently available at the Crown Liquors downtown (corner of Ohio and Delaware), and Kahn's Fine Wine and Spirits on Keystone."
