26 Oct October/November Happenings at Bier Brewery
via Bier Brewery newsletter
These are busy days at Bier Brewery. Jerry, Darren, Sarah, Sabrina, Jr., and everyone else on E. 65th Street have been planning and brewing in an effort to make your drinking life better. Here’s a short run down of the upcoming events and beers:
1. After a two-year absence, the Pumpkin Porter is coming back to the taproom. On the heels of the award winning Pumpkin Ale release and Fall Party in September, here is a darker version of a pumpkin beer. The chocolate malt with a hint of roast for this beer gives a rich, chocolatey base against which the pumpkin spices play wonderfully. Look for this beer to drop on Tuesday, November 7th.
2. Even before the Pumpkin Porter comes out, the Baseline IPA will hit the taps at Bier on Halloween, the 31st. For those of you who have had the Freebase IPA, this is the same recipe, just renamed to allow for packaging in cans and distribution. Somehow the name freebase, and the long lost drug reference it conjured, just didn’t work for canning. The Baseline retains the original hop forward profile of citrus and grapefruit with a long finish, so look for this beer to go quickly. If you miss it in the taproom, you will have to wait until early 2018 to buy it in cans.
3. Wednesdays are $4 pints for all beers on taps, but that’s not all. Who doesn’t want to play Bingo for Bier Brewery prizes? The games will go from 6:30-8:30 pm every Wednesday to join in the fun. Bring your grandparents
4. Thursdays are Euchre nights at Bier Brewery. Sponsored by Weber Realty Group, there are prizes every Thursday, and a monthly grand prizes if your luck turn before November ends. The points are accumulated by the individual, not the team, so partners shifting for every game. Basically, try to devise table talk that all your partners will recognize.
5. Both Friday the 27th, and Saturday the 28th, there will live music at Bier. Friday is Michael Pearson, the singer/songwriter from Muncie, not the Daredevil Brewing owner. Saturday is Jeffrey Deherdt, a college trained composer and musician from Indianapolis. There is no cover for either show, and each starts at 7 pm. Really, there isn’t a reason not to go.
