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!
