Currently working to get funded on Kickstarter, this group is focusing on the local beer scene. I got to try two of their brews, and both were very solid. The oatmeal stout was nice and roasty, and the pale ale was a high-quality brew, and both were above 7% ABV, which I found unusual and interesting. I really hope that these guys do well in this exploding beer market, and I think they can, especially with their local roots. In a very savvy move, the brewer was passing out information not only about the beers, but about the Kickstarter efforts.
Shadow Boxer oatmeal stout [ 7.0% ABV | 44 IBU | 55 SRM ]
This is a black, full-bodied ale with mild roasted grain aroma, coffee flavor and moderate spicy hop bitterness. A diverse combination of flavors all below a creamy brown head.
Beyond the Pale pale ale [ 7.2% ABV | 59 IBU | 5.4 SRM ]
A twist on the Belgian style, this beer has higher than traditional hop flavor and aroma and alcohol content. Specialty spices add natural citrusy-pine flavor and aroma to this well-balanced ale.
I love seeing people pursue their dreams, so I hope that you’ll check these guys out soon. Good luck Indiana City, we’re rooting for you!
