Logo-GreatCrescent2 Great Crescent Brewery has officially moved to 315 Importing St., Aurora (SR 56). This is one block northeast at the corner of Importing and Mechanic. New accounts include Bourbon’s and Whitey’s in Lawrenceburg. Dustin Boyer has been the bartender and guiding light at Spencer’s Stadium Tavern in Indy since it opened five years ago. Friday, April 23rd will be his last day. "So, now as he leaves the tavern to join our brethren at Sun King Brewery, we hope you will join us and invite any and all of your friends who have ever patronized the tavern to join us throughout the day Friday, April 23rd, if not all day, in bellying up to the bar, ordering your favorite, tipping a glass to your faithful bartender and wishing him well as he heads toward a bright, sunny, busy, married future." Goose Island is going to stop making Nut Brown Ale and Oatmeal Stout. At least in bottles. Still will be at the brewpubs. "In the competition for fermentation capacity, tap handles, and shelf space, Nut Brown and Oatmeal Stout have been disadvantaged by the increasing popularity of hoppy, wheat, sour, and barrel aged beer styles." The last batch of both is in stores now. The TTB has put up guidance on Label Approval for personalized bottling – weddings, birthdays, etc.
