JULY 22, 2016 • LESLIE BAILEY
There’s nothing like a day at the Indiana State Fair to awaken your senses, whether it’s taking in the view from the top of the Ferris wheel or listening to the music coming from the many concerts on the free and main street stages. But for many fairgoers, the highlight of those 17 days in August is the food.

Winter(fest) is Coming

JANUARY 19, 2016 • LARA NEAL
We in Indy are blessed to have some talented and imaginative folks crafting great beers all around us. The challenge is not in finding a brew to call your favorite, but in finding the time (and designated driver) to travel about the city (and state) and sample them all.

Flat12 5th Anniversary Party

JANUARY 11, 2016 • SARA CROFT
Right now, hundreds of brews are being crafted at over 30 different breweries across Indianapolis. I know of at least two openings within the next two months, and dozens that are bubbling inside the minds of brewers, just waiting to be fully carbonated. But only a few can say they’ve been established for five or more years, and Flat12 is one of them.
