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.
