Beer Events past and future

Warm weather seems to go hand-in-hand with craft beer festivals! Two of us who blog for recently covered the Indianapolis Monthly magazine beer fest at Tomlinson Tap room at the City Market. We found warm hospitality and cold delicious beer offered by most of our Central Indiana brewers. SunKing provided samples of their Chaka collaboration with Oskar Blues brewery (or CANlaboration as they noted) an 8% Belgian beer that is very malty with the noted higher ABV.

Most central Indiana breweries offered beers that are either regularly or often on tap to help acquaint a wider audience to local craft beers!

Perhaps most notable is that more and more we are reminded of Belgium with nearly all local craft breweries featuring distinct beers that they have become known for so that, indeed, there is tremendous variety as you sample whether from Fountan Square, Peoples of Lafayette, Upland, Bloomington Brewing, Triton, Thr3e Wise men, or Black Swan or 3Pints from Plainfield. It was great to see so many brewers on hand to answer questions from the public!

On June 9, Bloomington will be home to a similar and slightly larger event 3-7. see blog below.

Then on July 14, the big Brewers of Indiana Guild 17th Annual MicroBrewers festival takes place at Optimist Park in Broad Ripple 3-7 See Brewers of Indiana Guild
