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!

  1. I am trying to get a job at a bar/grill place in my city, but I don't know anything about beer! I figured that online would be a good place to start my research. I think that terms is what I would need most to impress an employer in an interview. I will definitely be utilizing those! http://www.bustersmenu.com
