On March 24th, 2018, three leaders of the Beer drinking movement; Bdawg, Tommy, and Smitty set out on a march through the mean streets of NW Indiana. Opposition was everywhere. The journey was long (19.7 miles) and arduous, but our 3 leaders prevailed. Tasting beer and documenting 6 breweries in NW Indiana. Here are their notes from that historic day....
