Open the taps! Release the hounds!

POSTED ON: January 2, 2011 by

Oh, it was a glorious day, 12/30/2010! Flat12 Bierwerks opened our doors to the public for sampling and growler sales. What a great day!

To Hopstars and others who have cheered us on to this point, we can’t begin to thank you enough. Opening the taps is a start ; ). This momentous occasion calls for more than a one-day celebration, so much like Chinese New Year (without the massive work stoppage and giant-caterpillar costumes), we intend to keep the good times rolling. We’ll DM, email, post, call…we’ll be in contact with details on all the goings-on.

Many thanks to Hopstars and beer fans who pitched in this week/end to man the doors, check IDs, pour the beer, check out customers – all the stuff that goes on after Rob, Tom and Josh have kegged all that Flat12 product.

Some highlights: this video from Bob Mack at World Class Beverages.

And Indiana Beer, provided this log from their experience on Thursday (Thanks to Bob Ostrander for being a great ambassador for Indiana beer and jumping in to pour samples). While we’re on the topic of Indiana beer people: thanks to IndyBeer Meetup, Girl’s Pint Out, Hoosier Beer Geek, Gray Goat Sports (See Mohawk Riders) and other friends for not only coming in, but pitching in, bringing friends and adding to a great atmosphere Thursday and Friday.
