I’m a little behind after focusing on Winterfest, so let’s plow through this…….
Perhaps you’ve heard that it’s Super Bowl week in Indianapolis. We need all willing Twitter participants to help us promote local beer by using the hashtag #IndianaBeer. If you can get downtown, tweet about where you’ve found local craft beer. If you can’t get downtown, tweeting about your favorite local beers can help get the hashtag trending. Something like “The #IndianaBeer website rocks my world” could also be an option. Check out Bob Mack’s post for more details.
If you’re visiting our humble city this week, the Hoosier Beer Geeks have some helpful posts on where to find memorable encounters with great beer.
Another beer festival! The Heart of the Brews will take place on February 24th at the Omni Severin in downtown Indianapolis. Participating breweries include Barley Island, Bier Brewery, Sun King, and Upland. Proceeds will benefit the Riley Heart Research Center and you can get early bird tickets for only $30 through February 3rd.
Ratebeer users have ranked the best brewers in the world, and a certain brewery in Munster checks in at #1. Oh, and the next two are just a short drive to the north. Suck it California!
On the subject, the details of Founder's KBS Release are available. The festivities will be Saturday, March 10th and KBS is available for $4.75 a bottle, $19 a 4-pack, and $114 a case. Your kids didn’t really need that college fund anyway.
Upland has a brief update on expansion plans. The Gilgamesh bottles sold out online in a single afternoon. Thanks to everyone who checked out our preview!
New Albanian has an updated list of 52 kegs for Gravity Head. I’ll refrain from commenting on session beers.
