Indiana Beer News – Feb 16

The Bier Brewery and Taproom in Indy will now be open on Wednesdays. Wed-Fri: 3-7pm. Sat: 1-7pm. Sun Noon-4pm. Random pictures at Oaken Barrel. Mark Havens, John Treeter, and John Caveda bottle. Venting the new Chocolate Marshmallow Porter (that’s a joke). OB-crew OB-ChocMarsh Tastes:

  • Oaken Barrel Nitro Stout – Creamy and less roasty than most.
  • Power House Tripel – Yellow with big foamy head. Lots of Belgian banana aroma that continues and adds yeast-bearing characters. 9% but not hot at all without just overlaying the alcohol with sweetness.
  • Power House Wee Heavy – Deep black but light malt taste. Mild hoppiness then sweet malt finish that becomes somewhat more complex.
