Beer buzz 

The blog entry "The Beer Menu at Lucas Oil Stadium" ( appeared on Sept. 16, 2008.

The Ram was the sole Indiana craft beer available at Lucas Oil Stadium, but unable to find where their Amber and Blonde were sold, Hoosier Beer Geek Jason wrote an encyclopedic blog on craft beer at stadiums across the USA, and the poor showing at Lucas.

A year later NUVO heard, "Upland is available in Lucas Oil Stadium at various kiosks and concession stands, in the suites and the Baker & Daniels East Club and Advantage West Club. Look for us in your game-day program for exact locations."

Jon Simmons at The Ram promised he'd inform us of sales locations. "In the meantime, just stop at The Ram for our Alt, Irish Stout, Honey Brown, Amber and Blonde," Simmons invited.

Simultaneously, Mat Gerdenich at Cavalier Distributing e-mailed, "Maybe the powers that be in Indiana will see the light some day," in response to a notice from Denver: "Breckenridge Avalanche will have 17 draft lines at Invesco Field for the 2009 Denver Bronco home football schedule. If anyone makes a trip through Denver for a football game this year, please contact me and I will be able to let you know the exact locations of our lines for you to have a beer or two []."

A reader called, "Stop by Broad Ripple Brewpub for their Pilsner." Brewer Kevin Matalucci reports that after six weeks of lagering, the imported Czec hops "rounded out nicely; straw clear color, crisp and clean tasting for summer." Equally tempting is BRBP's Organic Pale Ale with organic base malt from Minnesota and certified traditional hops from New Zealand. The drinkable summer Donker Brown is a reminder of Matalucci's and John Hill's trip to Bruges, Belgium.

On the way to IndyFringe we'll stop at Rock Bottom downtown for Jerry Sutherlin's Happy Pils.
