20 years in the making: Southern Indiana’s first brewery bottles our first distributed beer
After 20 years of Bloomington Brewing Co. craft beer only being available on draft (save for a super-limited run of bottled B-Seven Bourbon Barrel Belgian Brown) at the Brewpub and other fine establishments in Indiana, you’ll be able to enjoy Rooftop IPA in 22-ounce bottles beginning in early April.
Gold medal winner of the 2013 Indiana State Fair Brewers Cup, Rooftop is the flagship IPA and guest favorite at the Bloomington Brewpub at Lennie’s. The 22 oz. bottles will be available for purchase at Bloomington’s Big Red Liquors beginning Saturday, April 5 at noon at our release party at the North College Ave. location, then the following week at all other Bloomington Big Red Liquors and other retailers, and statewide by June.
Bloomington Brewing Co. was established in 1994, after Cofounder and CEO Jeff Mease successfully lobbied the Indiana legislature to change Indiana alcoholic beverage laws that were very discouraging to small breweries. Bloomington Brewing Co. was the fourth modern-era brewpub in the state and the first in Southern Indiana.
