Visited the brewery on Sunday, September 15, 2013.

The atmosphere was a little underwhelming compared to our other two stops that day, at Indiana City and Bier Brewery, respectively. Flat 12 Bierwerks looks more like a sports bar/beach party hangout than an actual brewery.

The service was split down the middle, in my opinion. The gentleman pouring bullets and growlers and greeting people at the door was extremely congenial and helpful. However, when we made our way into the tasting room to purchase a couple of pints, the women working this section were less than friendly and seemed unhappy to serve people.

GLARINGLY CRUCIAL SIDE NOTE: They were pouring all half pints and full pints in PLASTIC CUPS. Yes, they don't even use pint glasses...and this is at the brewery itself. Major disappointment.

The selection was just okay, which was another tiny disappointment. When I go to the source I expect to see some variety and one-off's that are exclusive to the establishment, but other than the Saison Du'Flat there was nothing new to be seen. I had a half pint of that beer, which was decent, and that was it, other than my bullet fill of Walkabout.

The food truck, Scribbles, ending up being our nicest experience of the entire Flat 12 visit. The braised short rib tacos were outstanding. I'm told this truck rotates from places all around Indy, and I hope to see them again.

Overall I was a bit let down from Flat 12 Bierwerks. I got my hopes up a little too much.

Perhaps the most experimental brewery out there. The beer is consistently good. Because of non-stop events, the place is fun to go to hang out and have some crazy brew. Usually at least one new beer a week. Love the patio!
