From August 4-7, downtown Indy will transform into another dimension to allow for The Best Four Days in Gaming. Rumor has it that current badge sales indicate the show is on-pace for record attendance, and Indy is bringing it’s best to the party.

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.

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.
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.
At this time of year, you hear a lot of folks talking about their holiday traditions. My “it’s not the holidays until…” doesn’t involve a play, dancing Santas, reindeer, a TV special, or snow; I look forward to the 12 Beers of Christmas and other special releases around town.
The kids may be back in school, but Indy still feels like summer with hot temps and far more activities and events than you can possibly attend.
