Releases from Upland, Sun King, Daredevil and more

Upland released MORE special beers to their Barrel Society and to the public starting May 24.

Black raspberries from Heartland Family Farm were a delicious addition to Basis. After aging in oak foeders for 8 months, these berries were added for an additional 3 months of aging. This beer comes in a 750 ml corked bottle at $25.

FLAYRAH Scottish Ale’s rich malty profile gets even better with 7 months of aging in Rabbit Hole bourbon barrels. Aromas of vanilla & oak finish with toffee, caramel, & fig flavors.  In a 500 ml wax sealed at $15.

TRIO highlights local Midwest ingredients. We aged Basis on strawberries from Heartland Family Farm, blackberries from Wild Blackberry Farm, & honey from Hunter’s Honey Farm. 750 ml bottle for $25.

Saint Joseph Brewery in Indianapolis, the only one in a church in Indy, celebrates a classic event with Half Note Haze, a hazy pale ale.

Tickets are as low as $10 for seniors, $20 for others (Mezzanine) to see finalists perform twice each along with video and awards that night. More information HERE

Bier Brewery Released Trippy Hop Drop using 13 hop varieties and a triple dry-hop brew delivering pineapple notes with a wallop of flavor. It’s on tap at both Bier locations and in cans where Bier (well, Bier beer seems redundant) is found.

Taxman Brewing, Bargersville and Fortville, released Hop Audit: Mosaic on tap at both locations and in 4-pack cans. This beer, part of the Hop Audit series of Belgian IPAs, has complex pepper of the Belgian yeast with the super citrus of Mosaic Hops.
