Big Horn Maibock now on tap!
Come taste our latest seasonal: Big Horn Maibock, at both our Downtown and Fishers location! This spring bock is a fan favorite of RAM patrons. Light in color with a strong toasty, bready malt profile and just enough hop character to balance out the intense sweetness of the Vienna malt; this lager goes down smooth with a slightly dry finish. Be careful, at 7% ABV this one can sneak up on you fast!

Rock Bottom two Indy locations

Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery will celebrate American Craft Beer Week, May 12 – 18, with daily events and deals on food and beer. One of the largest craft brewers in the country, Rock Bottom has over 700 original brews and more than 125 of the industry’s most esteemed awards including the distinction of “Brewpub Group and Brewpub Group Brewer of the Year” given at the last Great American Beer Festival® and a gold medal in the “Belgian-Style Pale Ale” category at the recent World Beer Cup®.

The Brewery will showcase its wide range of craft beers during the week including:
India Pale Ale - Brewed from hand-selected Yakima hops, with a bold, citrus flavor. ABV: 6.5%
Red Ale - Full of robust crystal hop flavor with a bold, toasted malt profile that makes it substantially less bitter. ABV: 5.7%
White Ale - Coriander and orange peel are used instead of straight hops to impart a unique citrus spice over a slightly sour body. ABV: 5.3%
Kölsch Ale – Has a prominent, but not extreme, hoppiness and is less bitter than standard German pale lager. A great choice for craft beer newcomers. ABV: 5%
Specialty Dark – A bold beer, often based on seasonal or hard-to-find ingredients. Expect a range of porters and stouts, even the occasional dark English brown ale.
Brewmaster’s Choice – Unique beers inspired by the season or personal preference of the local brewer.
