Stop by here to fill up a couple of growlers... cream ale & wheat wine - both outstanding. This is like a secret beer hide-a-way nestled right next to the Michigan border. Nothing fancy about this place - itís all about the beer. I would have liked to sample more as the stuff on the board looked great. Iíll be back.

odd location very near the michigan border. as i pull up, i see a bunch of dudes smoking weed in the parking lot. very friendly place. bought a flight of 8 for $15, and ended up getting 11 samples instead. beers ranged from above average to excellent. ipas were especially strong. highly recommended. if youíre in the area.

I love the place. Itís like hanging out in your friends house except your friend can brew some kick-ass beer. Large TVs and a Mug club are definite pluses.

As far as Iím concerned, this is the best brewery in Indiana. (Yes, I said it. I now skip Three Floydís and go here instead on my monthly business trips from Chicago to S. Bend.) I am really impressed with the quality and variety of beers being brewed here. Theyíre also very innovative with flavor profiles like the ones in the Thai PA. Cool small place that is cozy and always friendly. Itís a little hard to find located past a KOA campground and in the back of an industrial park, but worth getting there. The tap list changes pretty frequently and thereís always something new and interesting to try. Growler fills are commonplace and they even have a smaller "bullet" sized growler for $3. Pretty good for taking that last pint of the night home when you shouldnít sit there and drink one too many! Full flight sampler is 9-10 beers and cask specials pop up from time to time. Food consists of panini style sandwiches and other munchies. All of the beers, low ABV and high ABV, are well done. Credit cards are also now accepted.

You need a GPS to find this location, but I did and glad I did. Small location with bar on right with some seating around inside. Freindly service. Good selection of beers with staff participation to help with styles and info. Enjoyed the visit.

Kind of strange location. After looking at a map, we realized you could walk out the back door, and right across the Ind/Mich state line. Relaxed atmosphere, decent prices, friendly staff. Nice variety of beer, and itís obvious these guys like to experiment.

Interesting location - behind a KOA in an industrial park. Nice lounge feeling. Good variety of beer with interesting use of peppers. Only sandwiches available foodwise - didnít eat anything this trip. Nice comfortable place.

1st off it current is still a CASH ONLY establishment, hopefully that will change soon. 2nd, slow to update web pages. Now for the good stuff, lot is interesting beers and the brewer is not afraid to experiment with all kinds of spices. The ThaiPA has become the flagship brew and the did an outstanding Pablano Imperial Stout that was to die for. The beer pricing is reasonable and you can get growlers in both 64 and 32 ounces. Hard to find but worth the trip.
