Yup, another beer festival.
But for Indy, it is not just another beer festival.
It is a festival dedicated to barrel aged beers. And that excites me. If you know me (and some of you do), you know how much I love beers aged in barrels. Festivals that are dedicated to styles or variations (like Upland's Midwest Sour + Wild + Funk Fest) are a much needed addition to our beer festival scene. And I am happy that Black Acre Brewing is taking it on.
