Books & Brews In Indianapolis
Books & Brews has new hours! We will now be open until 10pm Monday through Thursday and 11pm on Friday and Saturday.

Shogun Soba Ale (5.1%, 23 IBU) - Our Soba Ale is an amber ale brewed with buckwheat, giving it a salty-sweetness that we think could have calmed the feudal Japan chronicled in the James Clavell classic.

Hop’s Cradle DIPA (7.2%, 85 IBU, on Nitro) - There may be no cradle, but the hops are easy to find in this double-IPA named by one of our Kickstarter backers. Heaping additions of Centennial and Cascade hops highlight this tasty concoction.

Weekend Events:
Friday - Open at 11am for lunch, Kid's Story Time at noon, live music from Jen Midkiff and Debbie Gates of "Wild Mercy" from 8pm-10pm, after hours event at 11pm to be announced (stay tuned, e-mail suggestions to jason@booksnbrews.com)

This will be available in bottles and limited draft. Also from Jolly Pumpkin we will be getting a limited amount of the next in the Baudelaire Series beers. Ale Absurd is a Rye Tripple Ale coming in at 8.3% which will be available in bottles only.

April 30th, 5:30pm - Join us at Twenty Tap on College Ave, starts at 5:30 PM. We will be tapping a very special keg of Bible Belt, the much anticipated collaboration between Prairie Artisan Ales and Evil Twin Brewing . This beer is a big over the top imperial stout that combines Prairie's Bomb! and Evil Twin's Even More Jesus stouts resulting in a bold, smokey, and spicy love child! In addition to this we will Also be tapping Prairie's Prairie Ale, their classic saison which is fermented with ale and wine yeasts as well as Brett. But wait there's more! We will also tap Evil Twin's Freudian Slip Barley wine. This hoppy version of the style has an ego almost as big as the flavor it packs!
