An IPA tour in honor of National Beer Day

Apr 8th, 2014 | Craft beer, News

By Will Carroll   National Beer Day is on a Monday? Okay, that seems a bit odd and let’s face it, these national days really don’t mean much. No one’s getting the day off, and if you really need an excuse to drink a beer on any day (responsibly!) then you’re doing it wrong. There’s … more »

Spring means brewery openings in Indy

Mar 24th, 2014 | Craft beer, News

By Will Carroll Spring has sprung, at least on the calendar. There might be snow and cold in the forecast, but no one could have known that months ago as they were trying to plan  an event. “Solstice?” they must have said. “That would be a perfect time to open a new brewery!” And open … more »

Read the label or pay the price

Mar 15th, 2014 | Craft beer, News

By Will Carroll I was excited to see a nice selection of Stone beers at a local package store last weekend. Stone and its Arrogant Bastard Ale are among the reasons craft beer went big. Stone found that combination of great beer, humor and not being conventional. So many others have tried to follow, but … more »

More and weirder craft beer is part of the fun

Mar 8th, 2014 | Craft beer, News

By Will Carroll Go ahead. Try and count all the breweries in Indiana. There’s a bunch — so many  that even the most ardent and ambitious beer drinkers around probably haven’t tried half of them. You could plant yourself at Twenty Tap, Tomlinson or another local bar that serves local beer and even on rotation, … more »

Six-pack or keg? You decide

Feb 28th, 2014 | Craft beer, News

By Will Carroll I see you at Costco. You look, but not directly. You see it out of the corner of your eye and you think “I could get that,” but then you think about your wife or girlfriend’s reaction. You wonder whether that kegerator is really for you. It’s a big decision and one … more »

Finding Indy’s best beer means finding your favorite

Feb 21st, 2014 | Craft beer, News

By Will Carroll There’s an incredible amount of breweries in Indiana. Just in Indy, there are so many that we have to wonder if there’s a — no pun intended — saturation point. The saving grace is that even with more and more breweries coming opening, it’s hardly a rounding error for the “MBC” (Miller … more »

Craft beer captures the spirit of Indy

Feb 14th, 2014 | Craft beer, News

By Will Carroll For those of you that don’t know me, my day job is sportswriter. Yes, it’s a real job. A few years back when Indy hosted the Super Bowl, I felt like a one-man guidebook, pointing my fellow writers to great restaurants and places to see. There’s more than just St. Elmo’s in … more »

North St. for its open house tonight, they’re going to see a great space — a huge space — one that seems tailor made for brewing beer.  Ted Miller, of Outliers and its soon-to-be adjacent restaurant The Owner’s Wife, talked recently about how it all … more »

Sep 29th, 2013 | Craft beer, Events, News

The first Sun King CANvitational canned craft beer fest was Sept. 28 on Georgia Street in downtown Indianapolis. Beautiful weather  helped, but the real star was the excellent canned craft beer from top-notch brewers across the country.
