T 040 Indy t-shirt is beerly remembered

Tee Wagon Train Wheat

Indy’s award-winning craft beer scene is thriving and growing by the minute. Ranging from small taprooms to large warehouses, each brewery is very different, offering a pint for every palate, a website tells me. (https://www.visitindy.com/indianapolis-whats-on-tap-indy-breweries). Maybe. I don’t know.

I ran into that website only because I was trying to get info about my shirt that I got while visiting downtown Indianapolis in 1999. Yes, I still have t-shirts from the last century. Go figure. I started drinking wheat beers when I was stationed in Augsburg, Germany, in the mid-1980s.

Wheat beer is a beer, usually top-fermented, which is brewed with a large proportion of wheat relative to the amount of malted barley. The two main varieties are Weissbier and Witbier; minor types include Lambic, Berliner Weisse and Gose, according to Wikipedia.
