all of their beers are Belgian inspired, as well as the food in the tap house. I believe their head brewer and/ or owner spent some time in Europe studying the styles.

Couple Indiana beers that you should be able to find where you are would be Three Floyd's Zombie Dust, Three Floyd's Gumballhead, and Four Hourseman's Irish Red.

Its been said several times before, but Bell's has a lot of good beer. Two Hearted is one of my all time favorites.

I think they moved to a bigger place too, maybe they will get wider-spread distribution as they can now make more, but 4 places have it on tap in 5-10 minutes walking distance from my house so I'm not too worried about getting bottles.

Those were the imperials, here's their IPA bottle label.

Personally I prefer the keweenaw beer. I tend to like lighter malty beers though.

Anything by Jolly Pumkin, they are easily one of the best sour/wild ale producers in the country
Founders especially their malt forward stuff..porter and breakfast stout are my fav
Shorts, especially huma lupa. Soft parade gets lots of love but it's not my thing
