Pizza Port

Pizza Port – CA;   Pizza Port started brewing and releasing craft beer back in 1992 and has made a significant name in the craft beer business!

This is just one example of beers you may stand in line for because you know the beer and you can’t get it here!

Any IPA from Pizza Port is notable.

Rarh’s Blonde – Munich Style Helles

Rahr – TX;   Rahr has a brewing history to 1847, but this iteration started in 2014 and brews several traditional German style beers.  There are cool stories such as the image on the Rahr’s blond is associated to a real person from the 1950s, the mother of a person associated with the brewery.

There are dozens of stories to be found, about the brewery, about the brewer, about the beer!

Nate Swan is the Brewer at Rahr & Sons and is happy to explain their process, their hops, and how the uphold the 100+ year tradition.

The beers were delicious. Their Bucking Bock alone is worth standing in line.

A little bit of Texas right here in Indy at the Pan Am Plaza

 

 

 

Joleen and Brian from Piney River in MO

Piney River – MO; Joleen and Brian started Piney River back in 2011.  He moved to her state from NJ.   I asked Brian what inspired him, and he said the hard working people in their area. They want to brew local beer for local people – to service the Ozarks!   Try the Sweet Potato beer!

Last year they also had the Hobbey Farm Ale with honey and basil

And while I stay away from nuts, their Black Walnut Wheat was sampled by many as a nod to local.

 

 

MadTree Brewing of Cincinnati

MadTree – Cincinnati;  is a close drive from here, but if you’ve not been here is a perfect opportunity to sample such beers as

Dreamsicle – with Orange juice, Orange Zest, and Vanilla

Psychopathy Pale – with floral, grassy, and citrus hops

maybe Thundershow – a spiced Scotch Ale

 

Austin Beerworks cowboy!

Austin Beerworks, TX; brings another traditional taste of Texas to the Midwest.

Pearl Snap Pils- crisp pilsner once named the Official Beer of Austin

Black Thunder Schwarz bier, dark lager;  my favorite and both a GABF and World Beer Cup award winner
