Beer Is My Passion will be participating at this year’s Brewers of Indiana Guild Winterfest (now officially sold out) at the Indiana State Fair on February 1st! What will we be doing you ask? Pouring delicious homebrew of course 🙂 We will be sharing the stage with MONK, The Ohio Valley Homebrewers Association, and The Bloomington Hop Jockeys. Expect great beer from your favorite local/national breweries, but make it a point to drop by and say hi to your brewers next door! This year we’ll be sharing a Belgian Witbier with tangerine zest, chamomile flowers, and coriander; an English IPA (Sleepy Sailor if you’ve seen our recipe on our blog); a mulled cider (served hot for you firkin lovers wanting to warm up from the cold); and a jalapeno cider we got some cred from in the Indy Star this year. Stay tuned, as I’ll be updating my blog with a full list of brewers attending Winterfest sometime tomorrow.
These events are bound to be a good time. I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to make it to each one, so please feel free to drop a comment on what goodies you may have gotten your hands onto at the Jeffersonville and Bloomington events. Cheers!
Daredevil Brewing will be celebrating their first Anniversary with 6 Tap Takeover events this January! Not only will we see the triumphant return of Muse Belgian Golden Ale, but there will also be some rare small batch brews available as well. It’s been exciting watching Daredevil grow their brand over the past 12 months, and we at BIMP would like to congratulate them on a successful year of awesome beer. Keep them coming! Also, if you haven’t had the opportunity to try their limited release JWP American Stout (released December 10, 2013), it is highly recommended. Cheers!
Some of my favorites that night included the Powerhouse Diesel Oil Stout, Daredevil JWP, and Bourbon Barrel Teddy Bear Kisses, however they were all pretty fantastic. Have a listen, and grab some of these great brews as they will be gone before you know it. Cheers!
Indy Beer News will be hosting the first of a quarterly series of discussions called Indy Beer Talks at the Tomlinson Tap Room on November 20th at 7:30. This upcoming event will feature Clay Robinson of Sun King Brewing, Jon Lang of Triton Brewing Company, Chris Sikich of The Indianapolis Star, and Jake Koeneman of Hoosier Beer Geeks and will cover industry growth, market saturation, and increasing competition in the craft beer world. Thanks again to Indy Beer News, Mass Ave Pub, and the panelists from this podcast for the great beer and conversation. Click here if you’d like to attend this event at Tomlinson Tap. This should be an awesome time.
In each workshop you will learn the basic principles of food preservation and the process focusing on making pickles. You will get hands on practice producing product in each workshop, and you get to take home your finished product!
