The 2018 IN Beer Brigade Collaboration:
The third annual IN Beer Brigade collaboration beer is Lindera, a Barrel-Aged Fruited Sour Ale aged on Blackberry and locally foraged Spicebush, brewed by Upland Brewing Co. in collaboration with South Central Indiana breweries and the Brewers of Indiana Guild, especially for IN Beer Brigade members.
Lindera was first available for IN Beer Brigade members to taste at the 2nd annual Broad Ripple Beer Fest, and can release events for IN Beer Brigade members will be announced soon.
The 2017 IN Beer Brigade Collaboration:
Sun King, Central Indiana Breweries, and Stuck in the Middle S’mores-Inspired Imperial Stout
What is Sun King Brewing Company when they hosted Central Indiana brewers for the second annual Indiana Beer Brigade collaboration? Stuck in the Middle.
Inspired by the taste sensations of s’mores, this Indiana Imperial Stout brewed for IN Beer Brigadiers was sweet and smooth thanks to lactose sugar and chocolate malt, with a hint of barrel-stave smoked barley from Sugar Creek Malt Co. Pour the can and get roasty and toasty with this big, bold beer.
2017 IN Beer Brigadiers received four 16 oz. cans for complimentary carryout from the can releases of their choice.
2017 renewed members received the Stuck in the Middle collaboration tee pictured above at the release event of their choice. New members received the IN Beer Brigade logo tee, below, and could purchase the collaboration tee at the release event of their choice.
The 2016 Collaboration:
3 Floyds, North Western Indiana Breweries, and Corn King IPA
The famed 3 Floyds hosted the inaugural IN Beer Brigade collab, a hoppy, citrusy IPA featuring locally grown, locally malted corn.
Learn more about the beer and check out the video and glassware below.
2016 members received the 3 Floyds/IN Beer Brigade Corn King IPA nonic English pub glass.
