Brewery Updates & October Taproom Releases & More
And just like that it is October and fall has arrived. We had a great September and enjoyed seeing people out for Indy Jazz Fest and Daredevil Oktoberfest. For those that joined us we hope you had a great time. For those that missed these events both will return next year so plan ahead to join us.
October Taproom Releases
We have several taproom releases coming this month with a focus on wet hops and more double dry hopping. Also, for those that did not get out last weekend for our NEX IPA: Experiment #4 can release we still have those in stock. Like past NEX IPA can releases they tend to sell out quickly so don’t wait around on this one too long.
We know a lot of you had the chance to try our new Galaxy Double Dry Hopped Lift Off IPA on draft last week. What we can announce now is that this is the first in a series of DDH versions of Lift Off IPA that we will be doing regularly at the taproom. This joins our NEX IPA series as mostly taproom only IPAs that we will brew regularly.
Galaxy Double Dry Hopped Lift Off IPA. An amplified version of our flagship Lift Off IPA with an extra round of dry hopping using Galaxy hops. Available now on draft , 4-pack can release is Friday, 10/6. Taproom only. No distribution.
Denali Double Dry Hopped Lift Off IPA. An amplified version of our flagship Lift Off IPA with an extra round of dry hopping using Denali hops. Available around the middle of October on draft & 4-pack cans. Taproom only. No distribution.
NEX IPA: Experiment #5. For this variation of NEX IPA we are using Mosaic wet hops, Citra, Galaxy and Vic Secret hops. This will be more of the soft & pillowy version of NEX IPA for those that keep track (like #1 & #3) vs the more hop resin-forward variations (#2 & #4). Look for this at the end of October on draft and 4-pack cans at the taproom. A small amount of kegs & 4-packs will be distributed at the beginning of November in our distribution footprint across Indiana.

Final Bands at the Brewery of the Season, Oct 28th
The downside of an outdoor stage is at some point the outdoor music season ends. This year we are sneaking in a last event for Halloween weekend on Saturday, October 28th. The one and only Kyle Bledsoe will join us for a mix of Blues, Jazz and Americana soulful sounds. The patio will be tented for the holiday weekend of fun.
