2nd Annual Blue Chip Brewfest Beer List (Michigan City, IN)

We are just a couple of weeks away from the 2nd Annual (2012) Blue Chip Brewfest at Blue Chip Casino on April 14th in Michigan City. I just received some updated information on this event that I wanted to pass along.

First of all, VIP is, and has been, sold out for quite some time. This went extremely fast. For those of you thinking that the VIP ticket may not be worth the addition time and money, you'll be missing out on some really great beers, one of which is Bell's Black Note. Black note is one of the rarest and most sought after beers in our area, so I hope you are one of the lucky few that can experience it. Keep this in mind for next year...

Last year was a blast, and this is already shaping up to be so much better. Don't miss it!
