For Bloomington Craft Beer Week, NABC is pairing with BBC to stage a BBC & New Albanian Tap Annihilation on Friday night (April 12) at the multi-tap venue appropriately named (what else?) The Tap.
If memory serves, Bloomington Brewing Company dates to 1994, making it one of Indiana’s oldest continually operating breweries of the modern era. Brewer Floyd Rosenbaum has been on board since 1998. BBC was preaching the gospel of localism long before I bothered to grasp it, and perhaps this is why I’ve always felt an affinity with them.
At The Tap on Friday night, there’ll be four beers each from NABC and BBC, some giveaways, and plenty of craft beer consciousness. David Pierce and Josh Hill will be representing NABC.
BBC’s lineup: Biere de Mars, Rye IPA, Dry Hopped Aristotle IPA and Vanilla Floyd
NABC’s side: Black & Blue Grass, Elector, Naughty Girl and the seldom-seen Rye Barrel IPA
