Indianapolis, the Month of May is all about racing and in anticipation, we're set to release Hinchtown Hammerdown, a limited-edition, pilsner-style beer brewed in partnership with Verizon IndyCar Series driver, James Hinchcliffe. To launch Hinchcliffe’s beer release, we're hosting our first annual Hinchtown Hammerdown Can Prix event on Saturday, April 2nd at 12:00PM. 

It’s going to be the ultimate IndyCar kick-off party! Party-goers can participate in the first ever Can Prix Mini Trike Race! Come race to the finish line – on a tiny tricycle- to claim the title of Flat12’s 2016 Can Prix WINNER and win 'Hinch' swag bag prizes! We'll have free play Mario Kart in the taproom, plus IMS here with a prize wheel and 500 swag. Immediately following the races we’ll have live music with Brad Kleinschmidt Band and plenty of tailgate games and beer drinking throughout the day! 

This year’s release is made all the more momentous by James Hinchcliffe’s full recovery and return to racing after his involvement in a major crash at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway last May, but #HinchI5Back and better than ever. Flat12 Bierwerks and Schmidt Peterson Motorsports are encouraging fans to rally around their IndyCar driver, James Hinchcliffe, by sharing the hashtag #Hinch15Back. #HinchI5Back t-shirts and other swag will be available for purchase at the party.

Starting the week of April 2nd, 2016, Hinchtown Hammerdown will be available at select bars and restaurants, and local grocery and package stores around Indiana as well as the Indianapolis Brewery.
