Hoosier Daddy? Find out tonight at Bridge Liquors and Wick's Pizza.
There's a season opening basketball game in Bloomington tonight, so it's the perfect time to ask the question, Hoosier Daddy?
According to the Terre Haute-born labor union leader and presidential candidate Eugene Debs, "The most heroic word in all languages is revolution." Indiana has had numerous revolutionaries in fields ranging from basketball (John Wooden) to music (Hoagy Carmichael) to popcorn (Orville Redenbacher). Ever heard of James Dean, the actor? He was a Hoosier Daddy, too.
NABC's Hoosier Daddy (Crimson & Cream Ale) honors them all. Today there'll be a pre-game sampling of Hoosier Daddy bombers at Bridge Liquors in New Albany, followed by game time drafts at Wick's Pizza (downtown on State Street, also in New Albany). Hoosier Daddy has its own Facebook page, so tell us what you think and where you found it.
NABC Hoosier Daddy is available now through March, 2013, in 13.2 gallon kegs and 22-oz Bomber bottles. Here is more information.
