IUP Student-Produced Video from DI Oktoberfest; A Few Local Taps of Note

The 2nd Annual Downtown Indiana Oktoberfest went very well.  All tickets sold out, the weather cooperated, and all of the beer showed up!  We did, in fact, run out early of some beer, and all of it was gone by the end.  The crowd didn't seem to mind, however, and we got good feedback.  Many thanks to the IPA members who volunteered for the event or bought tickets - you helped make this event a success.  Bigger and better next year!

The following is a short video produced by some IUP students during the event - lots of familiar faces in the background.

The three winning beers from those who voted (81 votes) were: Church Brew Works Oktoberfest, Marzoni's Pumpkin Ale, and Penn Chocolate Meltdown Stout (which also just won a Bronze medal at the Great American Beer Festival). 

In other news, Brunzies has opened up on the corner of 5th and Philly.  Nice tap selection, including East End Hop Harvest (fresh hopped beer), Anderson Valley Heelch O'Hops, Ayinger Brau Weisse, and Monty Python's Holy Grail Ale.  Twisted Jimmy's just tapped Heavy Seas Mutiny Fleet The Greater Pumpkin (barrel-aged pumpkin beer).

October Club Meeting, Oktoberfest Updates

The October club meeting will be held at The Coney at 8pm.

VIP tickets for the Downtown Indiana Oktoberfest have SOLD OUT!  There are still regular admission tickets left, so lets keep our fingers crossed for good weather on the 12th.  Club members volunteering for the event should be contacted soon (if you haven't been already) about the tasks and schedules for the day.

FYI - Twisted Jimmy's has just tapped Stone's 17th Anniversary beer, Goetterdaemmerung IPA. Get it while it lasts!
