The Crowler® is coming to Daredevil & more
March 12, 2015
There is a lot going on with Team Daredevil these days and we wanted to take a moment to share some of the news.
The Crowler is coming
We are excited to announce we are bringing the Crowler to Indy. The Crowler is a 32 oz can that is filled fresh right at our taproom and has many advantages compared to glass growlers. It also means we have the ability to freshly can smaller batch Rare Devil beers in addition to our more regular beers that you know and love like Lift Off IPA, Rip Cord DIPA, Muse Belgian Golden Ale, J.W.P. American Stout and Vacation Kölsch.
We just finalized our label design and the shiny new canning machine is on it’s way from our friends at Oskar Blues. Look for Crowlers at the new Speedway brewery and taproom. We love the idea of being able to fill these with Daredevil beers.
Not seen a Crowler machine in action? Just check out this video.
Speedway Brewery & taproom
There has been a lot of progress over the last month and we are about six or seven weeks away from completion. That means the brewery would be ready for production at that time…. not that the taproom would be ready to open. We need a few weeks of brewing to satisfy some of the demand for our beers in market and also to provide more variety in the taproom for when we do open. We will let everyone know about the taproom opening when we make a decision.

Brackets for Good
We are a sponsor of Brackets for Good and we would encourage people to take a moment to check out what they do to help 128 non-profits raise funds to benefit their communities. (http://www.bracketsforgood.org/ Brackets for Good runs a competitive giving campaign once a year with the winning non-profit receiving a $10,000 donation on top of the funds they raise during the month long event. This year BFG is running in both Indianapolis and Louisville. We sponsor BFG because it allows our small business to work with a much larger group of non-profits than we could do on our own. Everyone wins in BFG.
