IndyCar Driver James Hinchcliffe Brewing The Bricks Red IPA at Flat12
The April 2nd Hinchtown Hammerdown release and Can Prix event at the Flat12 Bierwerks Indianapolis taproom is right around the corner, but the pilsner-style track day favorite is not the only James Hinchcliffe collaboration beer IndyCar and craft beer fans have to look forward to this year.
May 6, 2016 Flat12 Bierwerks in collaboration with Verizon IndyCar Series driver, James Hinchcliffe, will release The Bricks Red IPA. With 100 IBUs and a full tank of Centennial hops, The Bricks is the perfect beer to honor 100 years of racing in Indianapolis. This brick red IPA is complimented by the addition of milk sugar, to commemorate the tradition of the 500 winner drinking a bottle of milk on Victory Lane and kissing the bricks. This Indianapolis brewery, named after a classic game-changing racing engine, and the fast-rising IndyCar driver, Hinchcliffe, created a beer that runs 2.5 mile laps around the others. A very limited brew, The Bricks will only be available on draught and in cans at the Indianapolis taproom. Be on the lookout for The Bricks release event. A certain famous IndyCar driver might even be in attendance.
“Hinchtown Hammerdown will always be the easy-drinking, go-to race day beer, and it’s a great brew, but for the 100th year celebration, we wanted to go even bigger. So at the beginning of May, we will release my second Flat12 collaboration beer, The Bricks-- a Red IPA brewed with milk sugar, in honor of a great tradition in motorsports,” said James Hinchcliffe.
Flat12 also tweaked the Hinchtown Hammerdown can design this year to commemorate 100 years of racing in Indianapolis and Hinchcliffe’s full recovery and return to racing after a major crash last year— two tremendous racing achievements. Flat12 Bierwerks and Schmidt Peterson Motorsports are encouraging fans to rally around their IndyCar driver, James Hinchcliffe, by sharing the hashtag #HinchI5Back. #HinchI5Back shirts and other swag will be available for purchase at the Indianapolis taproom.
