Recap: VIP Brewmaster's dinner in Indy, July 17.

The following link leads to an accurate account of Friday's VIP Brewmaster's dinner beneath surprisingly chilly tents at Opti-Park in Broad Ripple. There'll never be another 70-degree daytime high on a Friday in July in Indianapolis, will there?

Brewmasters' VIP Dinner at Opti Park (including a mention of NABC's Jared Williamson).

The second annual Friday dinner gathering wasn't quite the inebriated scrum of last year's inaugural event, at least for me, but it was an excellent meal with plenty of beer on hand. My favorite of the bunch? Our 21-month old anniversary ale was quite good, having aged into something suggesting the flavor, if not the alcoholic strength, of Calvados, and Lafayette Brewing's Tippecanoe Common ("steam" style) was the perfect foil for the main "Hoosier" course.

Good eating, good drinking, and a decidedly relaxed atmosphere. I'll be there for number three in 2011.
