June 16, 2012 – Beer Event
Winona Lake, Indiana
Tell all your thirsty friends that the tasting event tickets are on sale at Cerulean. $20 will get them all the brew they’d like to try (starting at 5 p.m.) and makes a nice donation to CCS (Combined Community Services of Kosciusko County.) We’re shooting for 200 people…hope we have enough beer. We’re at about 150 gallons, which is more than a growler per person. Should make for some rosy cheeks.

Kettleheads Big Brew:
Here’s some photos of Big Brew, May 5, 2012 at the Cone’s. Brewers included: Dana and Kathy Cone, Daren and Lorraine Deffenbaugh, Matt Livengood, Dustin Hollar, and Chad Coxson. Other Kettleheads stopped by for a cold one: John Stangland, Keith, and Vishaka.
Looks like Jeb Freeman showed up for free beer and brought his party shirt with him!
The Deffenbaughs brewed “Skid Mark” black lager, Hollar brewed a citra single-hop pale ale, Coxon a clone of “Moosedrool” brown ale, and the Cones “Bucksnort” American brown ale. The Cone’s brewed the American Bucksnort Ale that they will be serving at the Cerulean event on June 16, 2012.
