We are excited to host Indiana Beer Brigade's first ever party and the release of the CORN KING IPA on Monday, October 3rd 6-8pm. This is a members only event, please read the info on the event page here.
11 months ago on Friday, November 13th 2015 we packaged and sold BA Hunter from our Gary, IN location. Some folks made the choice to and enjoy it and drink it at its freshest state- as was stated on the bottle label (Fresh is best, do not cellar). Others made the choice to cellar the beer against our recommendation before opening. Sad to say that some of these cellared bottles are showing their age- and not in a good way as we have received a few complaints of off flavors. At the same time, we have had some customers whose cellared bottles were fine and did not have any off flavors. We have sent a few bottles to an independent lab for testing and they all have come back clean.
First and foremost we value our customers and the quality of beer we produce, so I have made the choice to listen to our customers and make it right by recalling BA Hunter in 22oz bottles that were sold on Friday, November 13th from our Gary, Indiana location. Return your empty or full bottle with this SKU (730957374588) to our Hammond location (5417 Oakley Ave, Hammond, IN 46320) and we will issue you a gift certificate for the full value of the bottle with no questions asked. You will have until the end of 2016 to turn in your bottles and receive your gift certificate. Bottles must be returned in person, we will not be shipping out any gift certificates. If you have any further questions or comments please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our website for FAQ's on BA Hunter.
Starting Friday, Sept 23rd, we will be filling 32oz and 64oz growlers with all current draft pours (except Sour Note and Guest Drafts) that are below 8.5%. Prices will be in 2 tiers, either $10 and $17 or $12 and $24.
We are extremely happy to introduce the newest member to our team, Pastry Chef Ariana. Ariana graduated from the Pastry and Baking program at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Art in Chicago. A self described ‘Big Nerd’, Ariana doesn’t ‘like’ things, she ‘LOVES’ things- meaning when she does something, she goes all in- from cookies to fresh baked breads and bagels to ice creams and zabagliones.
From savory to sweet, Ariana will be preparing fresh baked breads and deserts for all of our locations. We have had the pleasure of getting to know her (and tasting her marvelous creations) over the last few weeks and know you will be as impressed as we have been.
Our new work shirts have been flying out the door. With the few we have left we thought we'd bunch em up in a bundle for ya. You get an official Dickies brand work shirt, a 13oz Willi glass, a coozie, and a sticker- all for $50! Both MEN's and WOMEN's bundles are available. Get on it here in our Merch shop!
