I just wanted to thank everyone that has supported BIMP from the beginning. Beer Is My Passion has been such an exciting challenge for me. Writing about beer, participating in tastings and beer festivals, and sharing my development as a homebrewer has been a truly rewarding experience. I’ve taken some much needed time to reflect on where I felt the future of Beer Is My Passion would take me/you, and I have some exciting news. Beer Is My Passion will be combining efforts with a fellow homebrew club (Krausen Growers Bureau) to form a brand new homebrew club. The Circle City Zymurgy club has officially filed with the American Homebrewer’s Association, and as of today I will be focusing my attention on making CCZ the best homebrew club it can be. Make sure to visit us at circlecityzymurgy.com for events, tastings, and news on all things fermented. Thanks again for the ride, and I hope you continue to make beer your passion!
Great Fermentations has been a long time friend of homebrewers in Indianapolis. How long you ask? 20 frickin’ years 🙂 Come celebrate their 20th Anniversary bash this Saturday at GF’s Indianapolis location on 65th St. There will be plenty of beer to go around including contributions from Sun King, Dardevil, Broad Ripple Brewpub, Chilly Water, Flix Brewhouse, Grand Junction, and cider from McClure’s Orchard. Expect great food from Moveable Feast, and an acoustic show by The Indiana Boys. As a special thank you, GF will also partner with Pack Away Hunger Saturday morning to pack 20,000 lunches for the hungry throughout Central Indiana (click here if you’d like to volunteer) The event is free, and starts at 3pm (volunteering will get you early entry). See you there!
Come visit BIMP at the Bloomington Craft Beer Festival this weekend. Tickets are surprisingly still on sale (I would snag the Early Bird if I were you 😉 ) The weather is supposed to be awesome, and I can’t think of a better way to spend it than at the Woolery Stone Mill in Bloomington. BIMP will be pouring between 2 and 3pm (just after our comrades from the KGB). Some picks to look out for would be Tin Man’s Damascene, Upland’s Bockness Monster, and 18th St. The Contessa French Saison. Have a great time, and remember to be safe.
Here’s the address to the Woolery Stone Mill. Believe it or not, it’s at the intersection of Tapp and Kegg Rd.
BIMP will be pouring from 6-9pm this Friday April 3rd @ the Earth Works Art Fair. Sample some homebrew and enjoy an evening filled with art, music, fire spinning, and food! Find out more on their Facebook Event Page.
