World Class Beverages is making available for sale an Indiana Sampler 12-Pack representing Indiana breweries and brewpubs whose beers are bottled. The first grouping will include award-winning beers from Three Floyds, Barley Island, Oaken Barrel, Wabash Valley and Mishawaka. Created as part of the Brewers of Indiana Guild "Drink Indiana" initiative, Matt Clapesattle says, "The Indiana Sampler exemplifies the nature of Hoosiers to support local products."
It's state pride talking when a Hoosier says, "I'd rather drink a beer from Indiana and give the little guy a fighting chance."
Clapesattle is a sales representative with World Class Beverages. Indiana now has 28 breweries and brewpubs of which a dozen bottle for store sales and the rest serve only on tap. The hope is to introduce a wider circle of consumers to the concepts of "Great Beer Made Here" and "Drink Green" to motivate us to seek out local brewpubs as a food and beverage destination when we travel across the state. Contents of the Indiana Sampler Pack will constantly change for the breweries and brewpubs represented and with a mix of beers from each of them.
"The Indiana Sampler 12-pack is a superb opportunity for people to explore the diversity and excellence of Indiana craft beer," comments Penn Jensen, executive director of the Brewers of Indiana Guild. "Indiana beers are indeed 'world class,' consistently winning medals at every major beer competition. We're proud to include a Brewers Guild brochure in every Sampler Pack, and to encourage everyone to pick up a Sampler. You will not be disappointed!"
