  1. Get to Know Cascade Hops

    May 20th, 2014 :: dhowe

    Cascade hops are among the most frequently used hop variety in American craft beer. They are especially popular in American pale ales and IPAs.


    This hop contributes to the flavor, aroma and bittering of the beer. Cascade hops are commonly described as having a strong floral and citrus aroma, and sometimes grapefruit.


    Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a great example of the use of cascade hops in a pale ale. It still remains a benchmark example for the American pale ale style.


    Cascade hops are used in a number of other popular craft beers. These include Boulevard Pale Ale, Green Flash West Coast IPA, and Anchor Liberty Ale.

  4. Hop Farmers in the Neighborhood

    April 18th, 2013 :: Bob Mack

    Today we visited the hop farm on the east side of Indianapolis. It was muddy and wet, but also exciting to see the farm in the early stages. No one was home. We hope they don’t mind if we snapped a few pictures…

    The Indianapolis Business Journal tells the story of these soon-to-be-farmers here.

    Also from Fountain Square –

    Our Escape from Alcatraz Bock is back and has already gotten rave reviews.  Your customers will love it.  This is a traditional German bock with a robust malt character.  Dark amber, in color, this lager is malt forward with toasted and caramel notes that finishes sweet with a very low hop profile.  31 IBU’s 6.3% ABV

    Count Nibula Chocolate Milk Stout has been very popular and is selling like crazy.  This chocolate milk stout is infused with Ecuadorian cacao nibs.  Black and viscous, this stout features slight roasty undertones followed by a sweet chocolate finish.  Full bodied with a creamy head that lingers to the last drop.  35 IBU’s 6% ABV.

    Make sure you plan to celebrate the End of the World.  The Mayan calendar ends on December 21st and some believe that the world , as we know it, will end at this time.  We have brewed our 12-21 Russian Imperial Stout to help celebrate.  It is black and viscous loaded with a blend of chocolate, roasted, flaked and specialty malts including a generous dollop of Germany’s famous beech wood smoked malt.  With an ABV of nearly 12%, your customers are sure to feel better while drinking some 12-21 Russian Imperial Stout.  We are offering only 1/6 barrels and are now taking pre-orders to be delivered before Friday, December 21st, just in time for celebrating.  The one request is that you have to agree not to tap the 21-21 stout until 12-21.  It is first come, first serve so get your orders in to your sales rep asap.  You will probably not see this amazing beer again!

    We also have our tried and true Backyard Porter, Preacher Daughter’s Amber, Hop for Teacher Pale Ale, Workingman’s Pilsner and Big Nuggets IPA.

    There is still some Fountain Square ESB, Cinnamon Girl Autumn Ale, and Dark Mild available.
