Calendar markings: The annual Brewers Guild of Indiana Winterfest at the Indiana State Fairgrounds is scheduled for Jan 31, 2015. The Bloomington Craft Beer Festival is April 11th and the summer Microbrew Festival is July 18th and is moving to Military Park in downtown Indy.

The Kokomo Tribune says Sunday sales and cold beer at gas stations should be passed this year (“should be” not “probably will be”). OpEd
