Indiana Beer News – January 19

Three Floyds has posted their 2012 State of the Brewery Address highlighting their production exceeding 20,000 barrels in 2011. They have contracted more hops to keep production of Zombie Dust moving forward. Supplies will be limited so keep your eyes open.

Stan Stephens, owner of the Heorot in Muncie, and his brewing cohort Bob Cox were invited to participate in Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp. During the two-day camp, they created a nice sessionable Red Ale dubbed Red-oric that clocks in at 9+ percent ABV. Want to try it? Head over to the Heorot at 8 pm on February 11th and join the festivities.

Goose Island fans may be disappointed to learn that Big John, Demolition, Fleur, King Henry, and Nightstalker will not be brewed in 2012. But various forms of Bourbon County Stout will carry on the Extreme Ales tradition.

Mark your calendars: Keg Liquors Fest of Ale 2012 will be held on June 2nd from 3-7 pm. We’ll have more details as they become available.

In case you haven’t heard, both VIP and General Admission tickets for Winterfest are sold out online. You can still try to find General Admission tickets at Crown Liquors and Central Indiana breweries……or nobly volunteer to be a designated driver.

On the subject, we have it on good authority that homebrew clubs will be able to serve beer at Winterfest! There had been some debate on how to interpret the Indiana law forbidding the sale of homebrew in the context of festivals. But we’re back baby!

Cheers, Nathan

Sessionable 9% beer? Either that's a typo or session beers are even more dead than I thought.

Well sure, didn't you know that 9% is the new 5%? OK, that actually was a poor attempt at humor. I was trying to avoid attaching the "Imperial" label to the beer being described since I know that's a pet peeve for some people.
