New Indy brews and beer news


Happy 15th Anniversary to Three Floyds! NUVO didn't get to Munster for the party, but we noted Three Floyds' Robert the Bruce in bottles at White Rabbit, where we were for Motus Dance.

White Rabbit’s excellent craft beer selection includes neighbor Fountain Square Brewing’s full-bodied Porter, Sun King’s Wee Mac on tap, and Sun King's Sunlight Cream Ale and Osiris in cans. Upland Wheat and New Albanian Barleywine are bottled.

Tomlinson Tap hosted a Triton tapping Nov. 16. Triton’s Wheat offers an outdoorsy nose opening into layers of malt tastes and closes clean with a slight hop tang. Brewer Jon Lang’s hoppier-than-usual Amber finishes with a bit of citrus while his IPA is close to expectations with its full array of hops. The Stout has middle-of-the-road malt backbone with a coffee nose that opens into layers of tastes including chocolate and toffee.

Oaken Barrel announced its take on the newest style of beer: Black IPA. Owner Kwang Casey says, “It boasts a hearty 7.8% ABV and has the appearance of stout or porter, but has none of their malty characteristics. Australian Galaxy and Nelson Sauvignon hops give this Black IPA a "soft fruity citrus flavor with clean aftertaste.”
