No single website or blog can cover the explosive craft beer scene in Kentucky and Southern Indiana (see how I didn’t use the term “Kentuckiana”?).

Thanks to all who are part of this. Let’s keep Kentuckiana (D’oh!) beered!

Hoosier Beer Geek: A Beer Blog for Indiana, from Indianapolis

Hoosier Beer Geek was established in 2006 as an excuse for "The Knights of the Beer Roundtable" to drink and rate beer. Since then we've become a bigger part of the Indiana brewery community, with experience organizing all three of the Brewers of Indiana Guild's major events: Winterfest, Indiana Microbrewers Festival, and Bloomington Craft Beer Fest. Our goal is to make the site a valuable asset to all fans of better beer in Indiana.
