Flat12 has been hard at work brewing up something special for the upcoming Colts vs. Patriots game on October 18th. Today, they’re excited to announce the upcoming release of Deflator Doppelbock! Deflator is a limited fall release, and unlike Tom Brady’s soft balls, this beer is robust and full-bodied! It’s packed with pure malty, toasty goodness.

Brewmaster, Sean Manahan, announced his plans to create the Deflategate-inspired beer back in May, “It was in the plan to release a Doppelbock this fall, so back in May I had the idea to brew this beer in honor of our least favorite #12, hence #Deflator. The Doppelbock style is traditionally identified with an -ator suffix, so it made sense.” said Manahan.

To launch the new beer release, Flat12 will be hosting the ultimate tailgate at the brewery for the October 18th Colts vs. Patriots game. Smoking Goose Meatery will have amazing grill-ready meats, plus they’re bringing out their smoker for tasty treats! You just need to bring your grill, tailgate supplies, grab a pint, and chill-out and grill out in the beer garden. Pre-game coverage, free play ping pong and cornhole are sure to keep you entertained. Flat12 is also extending hours and will show the BIG game on the big screen.

If you’re lucky enough to have tickets to the Game-of-the-Season, don’t let the the air out of your good time by worrying about driving to the stadium or parking— Flat12 has your covered! They’ve partnered with Indy Brew Bus to shuttle you and your group to the stadium with return trip to Flat12. For $20, you can hop aboard and have a pint of #Deflator on your way to Lucas Oil Stadium, then you’ll be safely dropped off back at the taproom at the end of the evening. You can park your car free of charge at Flat12, so just sit back and enjoy the ultimate hassle-free tailgate experience.

Flat12 will be hosting free tailgates for every Colts game, all season long. Make Flat12 your tailgate headquarters this season and come cheer on our Colts with your favorite local brew!

Tailgates are free. $20 shuttle tickets are available on Eventbrite and in the taproom. Beginning at 7pm, the bus will run from Flat12 to Lucas Oil. Ticket includes a pre-game pint of Deflator Doppelbock on the bus, free parking at Flat12 and post-game return trip from the stadium.
