There's way too much information to fully summarize, so I suggest you go check out the calendar yourself and see what looks interesting to you. A couple highlights:
- Brugge will be kicking off Indiana Beer Week with the official opening of their upstairs expansion on Saturday, July 12th.
- Brew pubs and beer bars around the state will be doing a "tap swap" with beers on tap in locations where they aren't normally available. Of note, a couple New Albanian beers will be in Indy -- St. Rategund's English Pale Ale at Brugge and Community Dark at Spencers -- and a Three Floyds beer called Alpha Naught will be available at Brugge. On Beer Advocate, Alpha Naught is listed as a "retired" American Barleywine.
- A "VIP Brewmaster's Dinner" will be held the night before the beer festival. Chef Greg Hardesty -- until very recently the chef at Elements in downtown -- will be doing the food. No word on the menu yet. It costs $75 and reservations are available by stopping at Brugge Brasserie or Broad Ripple Brewpub.
