March 25: Pups and Pints at Triton Brewing Company (5764 Wheeler Road), 1-5 p.m. “We are collaborating with Camp Bow Wow in Lawrence, the Humane Society and a few other local rescue centers to find homes for dogs and cats in need. Come show your support for these awesome organizations and take home a new family member.”
“We created SWFF at a time when craft drinkers knew little about sour ales in general and almost nothing about wild and mixed fermentations — it was our way of educating by throwing a great party. Now, it’s more about celebrating the brewers who invest the time into making quality wood-aged sours, and bringing to town beers that are typically not distributed in Indiana,” said Doug Dayhoff, Upland President.
The brewery roster includes 3 Floyds, 18th Street Brewing and Country Boy [Upland collaborated with Country Boy last year for the Funk Land Country Shuffle Sour Ale]. Brews from across the country and globe include Portland, Ore.-based Cascade Brewing and Freigeist Bierkultur, from Cologne, Germany.
"We’re extremely lucky to have so many great breweries from all across the country attend Sour Wild Funk Fest each year. More than maybe any other style of beer, brewing a great sour is a work of art. Our attendees get to try some of the best representations of this style in one palate-pleasing afternoon," said Dusty Howe, Upland Sour Brand Manager.
The event includes music and an area for designated drivers with non-alcholic drinks. The venue is close to some of Indy's best restaurants.
The historic 19th century Mavris venue originally was a terminal for the import of grocery goods for Central Indiana, and later was a plumbing warehouse. Renovations began in 1999. August 2013 the building was purchased by JM Consulting Group, Inc, co-owned by Jeff Cummings and Mitzi Rodman. Learn more at:
