It's officially here- Circle City Beer Week 2013!
This week-long celebration runs from July 13-20 and includes a variety of events. I've just downloaded the app (available on iTunes and for Android) so I can keep track of everything that's going on and make sure I get to see and do as much as possible. You can also like their Facebook page for a full list of events and updates.
The week kicked off with the annual Indiana Brewer's Cup competition. Congratulations to Sun King Brewery for earning the top title of Professional Brewery of the Year! Click here for a list of all the winners in the 23 professional categories. There was also a homebrewers side of the competition. Maybe we'll see the Big Guy on that list in 2014.
Brewers and restaurants all over the city and into the suburbs are celebrating craft beer throughout the rest of this week. There are lots of events to choose from that include dinners, tap take-overs, new collaborations, and limited edition releases. There's something for everyone even remotely interested in craft beer happening this week. It's the kind of event that makes you want to clone yourself so that you can be everywhere.
Closing out the week is the Indiana Microbrewers Festival on the 20th, in Broadripple. The website is up with a list of breweries and the beers that will featured. Look for us there!
