This past Saturday was the first annual Beers Across the Wabash in Lafayette, IN. This caught my eye some time back… first because it had the word Beer in the title, and then again when I visited their website:
Being married to a tech-eccentric I have come to judge events by the quality of their websites. Interactive menus? Check. Artsy graphic? Check. Easy to purchase tickets? Check. And BONUS- my first digital ticket to anything. That’s right, I paid for my ticket, got a text on my iPhone and then presented my digital certification on my phone when we arrived.
Now to the important part: the beer. Only Indiana breweries were in attendance but seeing how we specialize in carbs (yes, that is a reference to our corn) it doesn’t surprise me that hoosiers could take corn’s second cousins Wheat and Barley and make some fantastic brew. The following four beers were BY FAR my favorite. As a disclaimer, I am not a fan of hops. The following were beautifully light in hops, but never short on flavor, and include an ever-rare and underrated ESB.
