Just an FYI if anyone in the Indianapolis area is interested. This Saturday (August 28) is the Hoosier Beer Geek 4th Anniversary party. Think of it as a mini beer festival with food included. $30 gets you unlimited samples, 6 full pours (8 oz glasses), a commemorative glass, tamales from The Tamale Place, plus fun and prizes. Tickets are capped at 150 and they're still on sale here: http://bit.ly/gotohbg4

Plus if you're looking for a good way to make a weekend out of the trip to Indy, this is going on the day after (Sunday): http://www.digindiana.org
