Love beer (or wine, or Triton Brewing root beer)? Love flowers? If you especially love the idea of both at once, check out the Indianapolis Museum of Art‘s newest attraction: its beer garden, where you can unwind from a busy work week with some al fresco conversation in its 30-person seating area or a stroll through acres of blooms, drink in hand. I admit I’m not a fan of beer, but that didn’t keep me from happily basking in the afternoon sun I’ve missed this past week while my craft beer-loving husband taste-tested some libations.
I know almost nothing about beer–other than the fact that “hops” doesn’t mean the same thing in the beer world, and that there are a dizzying variety of brands at the grocery store–so I let my husband be the judge on Sun King’s newest concoction. His vote: thumbs up.
Of course, beer and wine always taste better when you’re surrounded by hundreds of thousands of blooming tulips and other spring florals (because, um, science?). With a map, we took to the Spring Blooms trail–taking a detour or two to walk along the back side of Lilly House.
