grab a beer, adopt a pup + local beer in South Central IN (NOT SC LA)

Upland Brewery will host “Hops for Hounds” from 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6. The band “Kisses for Free” will (gee, it would be nice if they had some Teddy Bear Kisses from Upland available!) play from 5 to 7 p.m. and Upland’s Oktoberfest special will be on tap..

Upland has donated the following items to be raffled, with the proceeds benefiting adoption sponsorships: a 1/6 barrel keg of any of year-round beer, two Upland t-shirts and a $25 gift certificate. Adoptable dogs and puppies will be available at the event.

In addition, Upland has the Scottish on tap which is the winner of this year’s Upcup competition originally brewed by homebrewer Andrew Korty of Indianapolis. This is a perfect session beer with lots of flavor at only 3% alcohol!

around Bloomington:
Also, Yogi’s Grill and Bar has several Upland beers on tap as a mix of their 47 taps.

Not too far away Lennie’s and Bloomington Brewing has eleven beers on tap including their Homegrown Dark Strong which has a nice rich deep flavor. It is GREAT to have a local brewpub with FOUR Local Belgian Styles on tap and (the last time I stopped) TWELVE local choices! Go Floyd and Jeff!!

If you want another choice in gastro pub atmoshere with delicious good, try Finch’s Brasserie. On our recent visit Finch’s had St. Feuillian’s Brune, which was my choice but is blown now, among their 8 craft beers on tap. But they do have Founder’s breakfast stout, Crown Brown, Six Point Rye, BBC Dunkel Weiss, New Holland Ichabod, Crispin Cider, Omegang Saisson, and an Omegang specialty Blanche.

Columbus, IN
Today we are headed back to Columbus where Zwanzigz has great pizza, a delicious chocoloate beer, Oktoberfest, and more. It is really cool to have a place where the kids can get into the drinks as much as the adults! With FOUR local homemade sodas, a taster + growlers of the sodas, this get the kids choices, too.

And did you know Columbus Bar/PowerHouse brewing completed their 300 gallon system and will be pumping out their local favorites with Jack the Bum out now and their Diesel Stout coming soon!

Big Woods in Nashville might be crowded today with so many who flock to Nashville but the beer they call their porter is delicious. If you put a gun to my head I might classify it as a Scotch ale, but nobody put a gun to my head and I like to drink it no matter what you call it!

cheers! See you out and about! Greg Kitz
