Restaurants: Brewery/Brew Pub
Winner of the Indiana State Fair’s Champion Brewery award in 2011 and 2012, Bier Brewery produces up to ten new beers every week, roughly enough to fill five hundred growlers. Offerings range from Witt and Kolsch in the summer, through IPAs of varying intensity, to barley wine in the holiday season. The quality is seldom less than excellent: Bier Brewery proves itself impressively adept in a wide range of styles. Tasting is free and the staff effusively knowledgeable and friendly. Best get there early in the release cycle (ideally on Wednesday or Thursday) to ensure a growler or two.
The great thing about nano-breweries (another way of saying “homebrewer that really, really wanted to share”) is that they’re so darn nimble. The offerings in this Irvington artisanal shop run the gamut from regular to revolutionary: They’ve poured everything from a peanut butter porter (Elvis shoulda been alive for this) to a take on German rauchbier (‘smoke beer’) to an utterly terrifying Hop Pun Double IPA that packs an unbelievable 251 International Bitterness Units (IBUs) and an alcohol content of nearly 10 percent. After a blast of this you might not taste anything but hops for 48 hours. Not that that's a bad thing.
We are an award-winning, American craft brewery rooted in European-style brewing techniques. While visiting the brewery in Richmond, IN, you can enjoy a beer on our porch overlooking the pond and vineyards of J&J Winery. Or, dig into a wood fired pizza in our 1900s dining area and tasting room. We love our beer, our people and our community. Join the craft crusades.
