While the others tell you about their favorite beers at Winterfest here’s some of the stranger offerings. The Brewers of Indiana Guild and the Hoosier Beer Geeks pulled it off again. Another CROWD of beer lovers and potential lovers spent 4 hours finding new stuff like Bare Hands’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Stout and Imperial Russian Stout with chilies and cinnamon,
Outside in the firkin area were Power House’s The Sour and the Fury, Ole Floyd, the perennial Big Boris Barleywine from Lafayette Brewing, Sun King's Timmie, Triton's Railsplitter with grapefruit zest, a 3-year old Lost Sailor from Shoreline, New Albanian's Naughty Girl and Beak's Best dry hopped with Cascades, Zwanzigz’s Rauchbier and Ghost Pepper infused Imperial Stout. The mix changed throughout the day but about 25 were being served on gravity at any one time – most earning the title of Real Ale if this was a CAMRA festival. If you didn't brave the cold for these specials make sure you do next year. The line out there was even shorter than inside.
