Scotty's Lucky Draft Night

It's all but official. The "Suck for Luck" strategy, whether real or make believe, has paid off and the Colts have the number one pick in the draft. If all goes according to plan, next Thursday evening Roger Goodell will say that magical phrase that Colts fans have been waiting for, "With the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Indianapolis Colts select Andrew Luck."

AlAfter a year unlike anything in recent memory, the Colt's franchise is rebuilding and the cornerstone of the new team will be the 23-year-old Quarterback from Stanford University. It seems like eons ago when a young Peyton Manning became the Colts quarterback and promptly turned around a franchise and an entire state.

"For the last 10 years, the Colts' incredible success has helped drive business downtown and it has been exciting seeing the rebuilding process and fans supporting a current 3-seed Pacer playoff team," said Dave Hornak, General Manager & Operating Partner of Scotty's Brewhouse, downtown. "As the Pacers and Colts go, so does Scotty's business…Scotty's is a big fan of the Colts, looking forward to this upcoming season and to the future sucess of the team. Go Blue! Go Colts!"

For the first time in about 13 years, the draft will be very interesting for Colts fans. For the last several years, it has been somewhat of a "yawn" as the team selected specific role players to fill in holes on a team made of superstars but all that has changed now. Gone are old favorites like Jeff Saturday, Dallas Clark and Joseph Addai. Jacob Tamme and other key players have been released or traded in major housecleaning of the team as well. 

"We're looking forward to a great crowd for the draft" said Eric Schamp, COO at Scotty's Brewhouse. "Of course our interest in the #1 pick in the first round is quite a bit different than in previous years, but all the rounds will be exciting to watch and see who joins the team as we move into the next era of Colts football."

DraftScotty's realizes that, with their multitude of TVs, wide selection of beer and food to fit every taste, they are the ideal location for draft viewing and they want to make it fun for Colt's Fans. During the night of the draft, Scotty's will be offering a "draught for draft special". All draught beer pints will be featured on special for $2.50 to $3.50.

"With all the hype about the draft this year, we thought it would be fun to offer draught specials," said Ryan Kellerman, the Director of Beverage. "Now, fans can make their own draught picks while watching to see who the Colts select."

As always, the Brewhouse will have 30 draughts on tap to accommodate every beer drinkers' taste. TVs with sound turned up will be on at all locations starting at 8pm Thursday night for the big event.

We want to hear from you. What would you do with the first "draft" pick? You can choose a beer or a player. Tell us who you would pick and why or what draught beer you would select and why. Post here and we will pick 3 winners to each receive a $10 Scotty's Gift Card.

    Totally jealous as a Browns fans that Indy gets to go from Peyton to Luck while my team gets stuck with the Colt McCoy pu pu platter, but you're going to love this kid, Indy.

    Player - Luck. He's just too goo to pass up.
    Beer - Hoptimus. It's made in Indiana and an absolutely delicious beer. Pretty much everything NABC makes is top notch.

    Had the double IPA last night at 3 Wise Men, that would probably be my first pick. And the Colts better pick luck, or I wasted 25 bucks on a t-shirt...

    I'd go with Gumballhead in the first round and a little Sun King Osiris in the 2nd.

    Luck is great as the football pick. Looking forward to seeing him play!
    Beer-wise - Sun King Wee Muckle or Triton Sweet Georgia Brown are favorites!

    To celebrate the Colts drafting the #1 player in the nation, I'll draught my #1 favorite beer in the city: Sun King Osiris.

    Not a beer drinker, and I think the first NFL pick is obvious, so first, I'd pick a Kitchen Sink and nurse a fishbowl for the night (maybe even share with friends!).

    Player- Luck in first round 2nd round LeMicheal James or the tight Luck played with in Stanford. The signed lots of Defensive free agents this offseason I suspect the draft will be use to give him more toys to play with.
    Beer- Sun king Wee Mac Go down smooth but still has flavor, I've never gotten a hangover while drinking it. Tremendous upside with very low risk. This beer is going straight to the Bud Bowl (remember those wonderful Super Bowl ads years ago) before its career is over.

    Being a Bengals fan living in Indianapolis, I'm answering with who I'd love to see the Bengals select in one of their two 1st round picks. There are several immediate roles that need to be filled but I'm cheering for LB Luke Kuechly, Cincinnati native and St. Xavier grad. I wish I could rock a beer but I'll be sipping on a martini in anticipation.

    Luck, for sure!

    I'd choose RG3 instead of Luck. Luck has a certain cocky attitude that Peyton did not have. I think Peyton kept the Colts humble. However, since the choice has already been made I hope that Luck turns out to be the best option for the Colts on and off the field.

    Ok, Luck #1 for football AND Bells Two-Hearted Ale #1 for brewball ... Going with our hearts on both accounts. Stellar athlete and craft brew ... Catch the taste with a surprising strong mind/body(inside). Cheers!
