Hoosier Beer Calendar

Events are subject to change

The Brewers

We are so ready for the summer craft event season. This is the time of year we get the opportunity to see so many people we know and meet lots of new people. If you see us at an event stop and say hello or just enjoy a beer sample!

Speedway Construction update: We have passed preliminary zoning for our production brewery and taproom coming to 1151 Main Street. We hope to have final zoning approval in 4-5 weeks and then break ground. We will keep you updated.

Last, please consider donating to the "Raise a Pint" fund for Chris, the head brewer at Bare Hands Brewery, who recently was injured in a fall and has some major medical bills.

Looking to find our beers? We try to keep draft locations up to date on website and post frequently to our Twitter and Facebook pages on can and draft locations across the state. If you are having trouble finding Lift Off IPA on draft or cans it could just be because the place you are at ran out. Always feel free to drop us an email, post or tweet and we will try and help.

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!
