Chilly Water Brewing
Chilly Water Brewing Co. has 5 beers flowing:
Built To Last Pilsner and Sweet Revenge Pale Ale will always be on tap along with rotating seasonals.
Current offerings are our 5 String ESB, Harmonika Hefeweizen and Space Circus IPA. A Nitro English Mild, Belgian Pale and Hoppy American Wheat are on the horizon.
This Friday is First Friday in our neighborhood and it is also Jerry Garcia’s birthday. In honor of this great American musician we are tapping our Captain Trips American Wheat Ale. Light in color, but hoppier than most wheat ales. Look for our New Speedway IPA in the next couple of weeks.
We also offer a menu of Panini Sandwiches, hummus and dips, and finally a delicious dessert called “Skip’s Balls”. Check out our menu!
We brewed our limited release Rip Cord Double IPA last weekend and you can expect to see it return on draft across Indiana in late August. Our summer special release Vacation Kölsch has now sold out at the warehouse so we recommend you enjoy it where you can find it while taking in the last few weeks of summer!
Tickets are now on sale for the Hops & Flip Flops Craft Beer Festival to be held on Friday, August 22nd in Speedway. Information at http://hopsfest.eventbrite.com . Tickets are going quickly with VIP tickets now over 50% sold out so do not wait too long to pick them up.
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.

House Beers on tap:
Goldie Hops- American Golden Ale brewed with Marris Otter, wheat, and some crystal malt. Lightly bittered with Magnum and Czech Saaz. With this combination, the beer is crisp, refreshing, and approachable to all kinds of beer drinkers. 5.2% ABV 26 IBU
Hook Up - A hybrid between a Radler and a Shandy. We call it a Shandler. It's our golden ale blended with a locally made, citrus forward soda. A delicious and refreshing beverage for a hot summer day. 4% ABV 7 IBU
Emerald Circle - Made by Northwest Hopheads, for Midwest Hopheads. This aggressive IPA is brewed with Maris Otter base malt along with Light Crystal, Aromatic and Vienna malts to add complexity to the malt bill. From here we get a bit heavy handed with our hop additions, which are early and often. The laundry list of hops includes: Cascade, Chinook, Columbus and Centennial. Which are added throughout the boil and then later dry hopped.
6.5% ABV 83 IBU
Horse Power - This house beer is a Double Pale Ale which lives up to its name. Maris Otter starts out our grist, followed by some Munich, Aromatic, and Light Crystal malts. For this beer we bittered with Magnum and Centennial, followed by late kettle additions of Cascade, Crystal and Styrian Golding hops which adds a depth of flavor and complexity to this beer.
7.3% ABV 63 IBU
Randy SMaSH - Single malt, Single hop beer with Maris Otter malt and Rakau hops from New Zealand. The Rakau impart slightly tropical and lemon characteristics to the taste.
4.9% ABV 45 IBU
Working Title Wheat - Citrus dominates the front end of the nose, followed by tropical fruit in the finish. Working Title is bittered with Chinook, followed by late kettle additions of Motueka and Rakau hops from New Zealand. The mouthfeel of this beer is achieved through generous amounts of White Wheat, along with European specialty malts. 5.3% ABV 50 IBU
All house beers are available for $5 growler fills on Mondays all summer long.

Thanks to everyone who has quaffed the amber-colored english pale ale dedicated to the supporters of the Indy11. We’ve had well over 100 names submitted, either at the taproom, at the game, or online. A few were tongue in cheek, but the overwhelming majority were names that demonstrated the fervor that already exists for the team.
With the help and encouragement of Indy Eleven management, the names have been narrowed down to 5 and handed over to designers to create design comps.These rough, or speculative designs, will be shared this weekend online and at the tailgate prior to Saturday’s game.
Be sure to come stop by The Brickyard Battalion and Flat 12 tailgate to tell us what you think!
