Calendar check: BIG Indiana beer events in 2012.

Are you joking? It's not already festival season, is it?

Not quite, but almost. First is the Brewers of Indiana Guild's yearly Winterfest 2012, which is scheduled for Saturday, January 28, at the State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis. General admission tickets will buy their holders sampling privileges from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., but if you pony up for the VIP rate, the gates open at 3:00 p.m.

Fast forwarding until summer: The weekend of July 6 and 7 is the time for judging the Indiana State Fair Brewer’s Cup. Information from 2011 is here, so be sure to check for updates.

This year, Indianapolis hosts the 2012 Beer Bloggers Conference on July 13, 14 and 15. Not coincidentally, the annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival takes place on Saturday, July 14.

These are events to consider attending if you're serious about craft beer in Indiana. Rest assured, there'll be many more.
