On Wednesday, August 24, 2016, Brewers of Indiana Guild, breweries from across Northwestern Indiana, and the team from Sugar Creek Malt Co. convened at 3 Floyds in Munster for the inaugural brew day of the annual IN Beer Brigade beer.
3 Floyds graciously hosted dozens of brewers at their state-of-the-art, world-reknowned brewing facility, where the collab crew also enjoyed incredible beer, tours, and camaraderie.
Every year, IN Beer Brigadiers will get access to one-of-a-kind, super-rare beers that will never be brewed again.
This year’s beer, Corn King IPA, features intense citrus flavor with grapefruit, orange, and lemon at the forefront. Citrus notes are balanced by pine, stone fruit, and berry flavors. Our local Indiana corn gives this beer a light body and a smooth finish making it an easy drinking IPA. ABV = 7.3% IBU = 75.
Corn King IPA beer will be available only at the private IN Beer Brigade parties in October 2016.
Thank you to all of Indiana’s northwestern breweries for their help in launching the IN Beer Brigade. The following breweries participated in the inaugural brew day:
18th Street Brewing
3 Floyds Brewing
The Devil’s Trumpet
Figure Eight Brewing
New Oberpfalz Brewing
Route 2 Brews
