I have been here several times and I too had high hopes for this place because of the brewing expertise. However you should all be aware that Jim Cebak has left Crown Brewing and you can already see and taste the difference. Only one beer on tap, an IPA which wasn’t nearly as good as the previous APA and Stouts.
Just off the main town square, large brick building, smaller tap room, slightly cramp. We tired 4 ales, 2 were great, two were decent. Friendly staff, they knew a lot about what was in the beer. Their beers on tap were extensive. I brought home a bomber of their Java White Russian Porter called "The Dude"
Small little tap room that I was only able to peek my head into as I was with the family. Worth a stop off in crown point but more to sample beer than for the food which is mediocre pub grub and fried fare. Did not try pizza, which could be the saving grace, I will definitely check that out next time. Beers offered were of a wide variety with some creative offerings. Will stop in again when traveling on I-65.
Well for ambiance nothing better than beer Geek bar. very small and friendly with eager service. No food but there is a pizza shop and I think you can order in. A handful of their own beers and some nice guest bottles.
Stopped in here on the way into Indy. Was pleasantly surprised by the variety and the beer was solid. Didn’t have any food but the prices were very reasonable. Service was alright, not much to complain about. Would hit it again.
Small, small, small place. I personally feel that their beer is the highest quality. Maybe they have 6 beers on tap, but all 6 beers are true to style. I would actually frequent this place, but it is a little too far away. You can order standard pub fare at the restraunt next door. Great clean true-to-form beer, and approachabel waitstaff.

Hello David Hunter, It’s Darren. I in no way was condescending to you that night, I never made fun of you and I treat my patrons with respect (if anything I make fun of myself each and every night). I simply asked you why you did not clean your growler. Your growler still had 2 inches of beer in it and the growler and cap were encrusted with mold. No bartender would ever fill that growler with beer. Another patron told you to take it to the restroom to clean it, not me. It would have taken 10+ minutes in order to properly clean and sanitize your growler. On a busy Friday night that is not a possibility. This is why all the bartenders politely ask the customers to immediately rinse out and clean their growlers when they are empty. Dawn was a table away that night, if you were unhappy with my service why didn’t you turn to her? Dawn does a great job at the brewery and so does Kaitlyn. So David, instead of calling me names (neanderthal), calling Dawn, and calling my boss, why don’t you just come in and talk to me. I NEVER once put you down, you were just mad because I wanted you to pay $4 extra for a new glass.
