Beers to drink while reading your NUVO this week

Posted By on Thu, Sep 15, 2016 at 10:50 AM

Every September, NUVO celebrates one of our absolute favorite things in the entire world: delicious, delicious beer. This week, our Beer Maven Rita Kohn told 200 years of Hoosier beer history, plus interviewed with Doug Wissing about both of their new books. And, if you picked up the print edition — and why on Earth haven't you yet?! — you'll see that our beer-loving editorial staff picked beers to match each section's feature stories. We've rounded up all those pairings and stories in a handy-dandy blog post for you here.

Drink: Three Floyd’s Brewing AlphaKlaus
