Looks and feels like a corporate brewpub. As you would expect in the area prices are quite reasonable. Typical pub fare menu, average food. Friendly staff.

Brewpub with less than average beer, but food is passable with some decent selections of bbq. Ambiance is typical of most brewpubs so nothing too special but not terrible. Overall its not a bad place to grab some food and drink very bland beer.

Came here with a giant group. If I come here again by myself or with a smaller group I will re-rate. My impression was that this is both one of the best restaurants in town and the only brewery. So it is very popular. The food was good and all the beers I had were good. Nothing mind-blowing, but better than chain-brewpub/brewsploitation quality. They did a hell of a job offering great service to my group of ~30 next year we will be reserving the party room.

Great restaurant/brewery on the southside of Kokomo. Nice selection of beers - nothing mind blowing but most are pleasant. Very good barbeque. Definitely a place to plan to have a full meal.

A nice BBQ joint. They brew their own beer.. Which I would describe as average..with a few good ones. Service is hit and miss. But the food and prices are very good. I got a lot of food and a beer for $17

Stopped here for lunch and some beer. Had the sampler which was 10 beers and most were good. A couple of misses. The lunch was good, had a hard time deciding which sauce I liked on the BBQ

This is the only brewpub in Kokomo. The atmosphere is nice with tvs everywhere and plenty of seating (although the bar fills up quickly). They have a solid selections of beers, and their food is good. The service varies wildly, especially behind the bar. There is one bartender who is consistently nice and attentive; the service falls off sharply without her there. With better service behind the bar, this place would get a much more favorable review from me.

Stopped by here around 9pm on a Monday with Callipalegic, met b3shine for dinner and beers. Itís a strip (but the building is free-standing). Easy parking. Inside, itís got a pretty quaint rustic feel, spoiled only slightly by how it was busier than expected (I didnít feel crowded by any means, though). This must be the hot spot for beer and good food, by the look of it. The beer itself was a little subpar across the board in my opinion. The hoppy things in particular lacked from what I remember, but there were a few good ones, and it was all certainly worth trying. They have a standard flight that includes all of their flagships, and the 3 seasonals and limiteds were available as tasters on the side. I was really happy with the food, especially for the price... It happens that on Monday their burgers are all just $6.99, which was a great value, and it was very satisfying. The waitress was the only staff member I interacted with and she was as helpful as could be expected. Overall, a pretty solid place that Iím sure Kokomo is very happy to have -- especially considering that itís pretty much the only beer-centric place in Kokomo, as far as Iím aware.

Driving north I stopped here for a lunch break. Located conveniently off of Route 31 in Kokomo this feels like a typical commercial brewpub. Clean with a number of televisions and "Midwestern kitsch" the place was quiet on a weekday afternoon.

Service was attentive without being annoying. The menu is typical - the BBQ sandwich was actually surprisingly good for Indiana. As far as the beers go they are solid and affordable. A sampler of nine or ten is under $10 with generous four ounce pours. I didnít order any full pints but there were a few that were good enough to warrant a closer look.

I would not recommend going out of your way to visit but if you are in the area set aside an hour or so. You wonít be too disappointed with an out of the way brewpub.
