My wife and I attended Upland Brewing's Secret Barrel Society Dinner last Saturday. Lots of great food and sour beers! I wrote about it for Indiana On Tap: http://www.indianaontap.com/news/membership-has-its-privileges-uplands-secret-barrel-society-dinner

Also, 2016 memberships are now available. Caveat: sours must be picked up in person. http://uplandbeer.com/shop/beer-accessories/secret-barrel-society-membership/

My wife and I went to the awesome Fall Beer Dinner at Function Brewing in Bloomington last week. Here are some photos of the beer-and-food pairings. I wrote a story about this for IndianaOnTap:

Yesterday I racked a sour I made last August onto 5 lbs. of mangos. This morning I'm headed up to Danny Boy Beer Works for an AHA rally. Beer weekend!

After being "the bridesmaid" in so many homebrew competitions, I was happy finally to take first place in the wheat category with my Weizenbock at the Jasper Strassenfest/Dubois County Suds Club homebrew competition today. Time for a beer to celebrate!

I had a great time yesterday representing Bloomington Hop Jockeys at GnawBrew. As a bonus, my rhubarb saison took third in the homebrew competition :)

First runnings for a blond ale. I'm planning to infuse with Thai basil when I bottle.

I'm headed to Indianapolis for Upland's Sour+Wild+Funk Fest. Looks like lots of new (to me) sours to taste :)

Beer and truffle pairing at Function Brewing. Why can't Bloomington Craft Beer Week be every week?
