When you walk in, the place is still under construction, with bare concrete floors, mostly bare walls, etc. That’s okay, they’re brand new, they’re working on the beer first and that’s admirable. The service is great, and the brewer Darren will come out and tell you what you’re tasting in any beer you try. They usually have between eight and ten beers on tap for tasting at any given time, so for an on-site brewery the selection is huge. The price is between $10-$15 for a half gallon growler, so this is not cheap beer, but the flavor is excellent and you get to try before you buy so I think it’s worth it. Overall this is a growing local brewery with excellent fresh beer that’s definitely worth a try.
I live down the block and feel lucky to have such easy access to what I believe represent a solid round-up of rotated taps. Love the free tastes to set-up the purchase. Not cheap, but something good shouldn’t be. Really looking forward to the sour(s) he has planning.

Stopped in tonight, I guess after they closed. One of the guys working let me in, and there were a couple of other customers still there. They close pretty early (7pm) but they also don’t serve food so they can’t serve pints. These guys have a pretty nice tasting room with random cool things throughout. I guess there is a metal working shop nearby because they had some sculptures in the form of Star Wars characters and other metal artwork. The beer was decent and the samples were free and they had 8 different beers to sample. Beer here is sold pretty much for carryout in growlers and half growlers, but I was also told that they rent the space out for private parties and live music. The other intersesting thing is that the lineup of the available beers changes every week, one customer was talking up the Saison that was coming next week, but I’ll be out of town :(
In an industrial area. Nice interior. Staff was extremely attentive and welcoming. Very nice selection of beers - very glad to see such a variety of ales, Belgian and German styles. Pretty convenient to I-69 and 465 for those passing through. Only wish they had later Friday hours - would stop all the time.
Stopped here while in town and gotta say, it’s pretty awesome. Tiny brewery, basically a huge homebrew setup right now. But they make outstanding beer. Only had 4 on when we stopped in, though. Service was top notch and dug the clubhouse vibe they had going. Really cool place that I’ll definitely hit again. Growler only for now, but they have samples of everything on tap.
Ambiance is industrial chic, service can be a bit lacking on Fridays (they really need a bigger bar area) but if you go in there on a Wednesday expect to have a good conversation about beer. Good variety they tend to have 6 to 8 beers for sampling at all times. The variety goes from wheat beers up to some very nice porters. They don’t have any food but if your lucky there might be a food truck there on a Friday. The prices are kind of high from 12-17 bucks for a growler but they do sell half growlers that they fill for half price. Overall I’m glad to have this brewery in Indy.
Stopped by with a group of friends from the area. Attentive sufficient staffing behind the counter by the taps. Liked the promotion of tasters before ordering. Had a good selection of beers. Wish they had a tripel on at the time, but they didn’t. Nice "homey" seating area. Smells like a brewery, which is bonus points in my book.
