Welcome Indigo Imp Brewery to Columbus and benefit OSCHA

Hey Clevelanders (or anyone that appreciates good beer) Hal & Al’s welcomes of Indigo Imp Brewery to Columbus! Brewmaster Matt Chappel is coming down from Cleveland to not only ride Bike the C-Bus but also help pour beers and answer any questions about his great line up of products.

Come to Hal & Al’s Saturday September 4th and purchase a draft of Indigo Imps Jester and keep a limited edition pint glass. Jester is a Pale Ale fermented with a blend of Belgian yeast. This copper colored ale is malty with a distinctive spice flavor (no spices added) from the yeast and a smooth malty finish. A.B.V. 5.8%.
Proceeds from Jester’s drafts goes to Bike the C-Bus charity Ohio Sickle Cell and Health Association (OSCHA), a statewide community based organization whose mission is to provide education, advocacy and support statewide to individuals and families affected and at-risk for Sickle Cell Disease. http://www.ohiosicklecell.org/

And if you are participating in Bike the C-Bus, your wristband will get you 20% off your food order all day including the after party. We’ll be open early to offer a rest stop to all the riders on the Bike the C-Bus ride. So walk, drive, or ride to Hal & Al’s to try some of our many beers and food from our 100% vegan kitchen.

And since it is the first Saturday of the month at 9pm it’s Rock-A-Billy Night hosted by The Tommyguns!

Indigo Imp offers a unique product that is open fermented. Indigo Imp is the only brewery in northern (maybe all of) Ohio that is using open fermentation. Open fermentation means that the beer is fermented in tanks that are open to the atmosphere. This allows wild yeast that occur naturally to mix with the beer as we add our own brewer’s yeast. This is an “Old School” brewing technique used particularly in Belgian breweries. Due to this method of fermentation each batch may have slight flavor differences based on the season, temperature and other variables. We feel this is intriguing to our customers and many are excited to try each batch. All of Indigo Imp’s beers are complex in flavor and pair well with many different cheeses and other foods. We feel the best flavor is achieved when the beers are served at 45 to 55 degrees with the darker beers at the warmer end and even warmer depending on the customer’s taste. Warmer temperature allows all the flavors to be tasted in the beer. If the beer is too cold, there could be an imbalance in flavor. This is all part of the exciting flavors in Indigo Imp beer.
