8 beers. 4 days. 2 pairs of Early Bird Tickets to the Bloomington Craft Beer Fest! We love celebrating local craft beer, and we hope that you will celebrate with us during Bloomington Craft Beer Week. Monday April 7 – Thursday April 10 we will be tapping two Indiana beers a day. Check out what we are offering, and how to get your hand on those beer fest tickets, below.
Evil Monday: Let’s face it, Mondays can be evil. That’s why these two beers have decided to come out and play. Evil-Czech’s Gypsy Chamomile Wheat features a bright golden color with slight haze. Their Gypsy also has a royal lineage, as they use Egyptian Chamomile in the brewing process, just like the pharaohs of old used to. $5 for a 16 oz pint.
Evil Monday is also when the dark Count Nibula will be showing his face. This milk chocolate stout from Fountain Square Brewing is rich with chocolate and coffee flavor with a fantastic finish that you can Count on (sorry for the pun). $5 for a 16 oz pint.
2 BBC Tuesday: Nothing says Bloomington brewing quite like, well, Bloomington Brewing! They have been an institution for years and have continued to push themselves to create some truly unique and tasty beers. We will be devoting two of our taps to Imperial Ruby, a pumped up version of an old favorite, and the Biere de Mars, a farmhouse ale that is light on the tongue with notes of citrus and pepper. Both are $5 for a 12 oz tulip.
TICKETS GIVEAWAY: On tuesday we will be giving away two Early Bird Tickets to the Bloomington Craft Beer Fest! To qualify, you must be following us on Twitter. You then must come in and order a beer and say the code word that has been tweeted that day. The first person to do so will get the tickets! Don’t worry if you weren’t first because the 10th, 15th, and 20th person to say the code word will get a Finch’s T-shirt!
Smoking Rose Wednesday: Are you in the mood for something light and floral? Or something black and smoked? You’ll have your pick of both on Wednesday when Tin Man and New Albaninan unleash their brews on Finch’s. Which will you choose?
Tin Man Roseinweiss: Rosenweiss is a traditional German kristallweizen (a filtered hefeweizen) infused with rose to add new depth to a classic beer style. The traditional banana character produced by German wheat yeast blends excellently with rose in the aroma and flavor. $5 for a 16 oz pint.
New Albanian Bonfire of the Valkyries: When you cross the best qualities of a Schwarzbier (black lager) and a Rauchbier (smoked lager), you get a pint of magic fire mood music. $5 for a 12 oz tulip.
Three Floyds Thursday: One of our favorite breweries, Three Floyds hails from Munster, IN and the only thing more creative than the names of their beers are the flavors that those beers contain. We have decided to feature to Imperial IPAs, a style that Three Floyds does so well. The Dreadnaught is an Imperial India Pale Ale with an intense citrus hop aroma, a huge malt body and a crisp finish. The War Mullet is a double IPA that will make you “want to grow a mullet (if you don’t already have one) and go to war (if you’re haven’t already)”. What else do you need to know? Both are $6 for a 12 oz tulip.
TICKETS GIVEAWAY: We will be giving away our second pair of Early Bird Tickets to the Bloomington Craft Beer Fest on Thursday! To qualify, you must be following us on Twitter. You then must come in and order a beer and say the code word that has been tweeted that day. The first person to do so will get the tickets! Again, don’t worry if you weren’t first because the 10th, 15th, and 20th person to say the code word will get a Finch’s T-shirt!
