Indiana Beer news — tappings and partys!

Mashcraft Brewing, Greenwood location, 1140 N St Rd 135,  celebrated FOUR years June 9. Party on Saturday 5-10pm, family friendly.  We’ve watched as Andrew Castner left The RAM to open Mashcraft, bring more local beer to the south side and Greenwood, then expand to the North Delaware location, and more recently Fishers.
Special releases:
Noon: Crafted Mash Vol IV – Belgian Quad with plums and chocolate (bottles available at all locations)
1 pm: Hibiscus Wit
2 pm: MashCraft Sour Exp. #1
3 pm: Lucia (Imperial Stout with Magpie coffee)
4 pm: Summer Vacay IPA (coconut, pineapple, papaya, and mango)
5 pm: Banana Split (banana, strawberry, and chocolate)
6 pm: Squeeze the Juice with Indy High Bines hops

I had asked a bartender at Mashcraft Fishers, 11069 Allisonville Rd, Fishers, IN, shortly after the opening why Mashcraft seemed to be popular when Heady Hollow, the brewery formerly in that space had shuttered.  The answer was that Mashcraft is a known brand in Central Indiana and the team has been consistent in what they offer regarding entertainment and flagship beers.

UPDATE:  you may find some of these beers still available at any of the three Mashcraft locations:  Greenwood, North Delaware in Indy, or Fishers.

Sun King celebrates NINE years at their downtown location, 135 N College, Saturday, June 16 5-10 pm. Our story here 

Flat 12 Bier Works plans a Grand Re-opening on Friday, June 22, after a brief closing started   June 3.  New Flat 12 Owner Andrew Tweed says, “We want Flat12 to be a gathering place for all, and allowing families was important to our customers.”  The previous entry growler fill area will be kid friendly space.  Flat 12 announced a new beer release schedule and new changes with new ownership.  Brewer Sean Lewis is still at the brewing helm, releasing Hello My Name is Amber in June along with Kiwi hefe, Tropical DIPA, and Blueberry Wit.  UPDATE:  Part of the remodel is completed and accessible as of early June.
