The Indy Beer Playlist
The Indy Beer Playlist
It's like a soundtrack made of tastes. A tastetrack.

If you’ve visited our office, you probably noticed two things: We’re always playing music, and we don’t mind sharing our beer. On a typical day, our designated desk deejay selects the workday mood music, and we’ll often have clients stopping by to discuss work over a beer from our office fridge.

We haven’t yet found a way to fuse music and beer into one ultimate amalgamation of cold, refreshing, and danceable enjoyment (we’ll keep trying), but if our favorite local beers were songs, this is what they’d sound like. You can get the whole playlist (minus the beer, sorry) right here, or just scroll down to the bottom of this post for the Spotify player.
