Over all a nice place to go. Just recently added more taps so there is a nice mix at all times. Beer is spot on good stuff.
The staff is approachable and kindley. I frequent this place often as i live 3 min away. The food could be better but I am pretty sure that they are separate companies and Crown brewing does not have control over the food. The bar is not large but they have a patio that is a decent size in the warm months. Definitely a nice addition to the many breweries in north west indiana.

My wife and I stopped in here for food and drink when we were traveling through this area. The pub is small but cozy, and is situated in an older building that has a pizza parlor at the front. Free parking is in a lot adjacent to the building. The place is located just at the edge of the downtown area of Crown Point. (Of historical interest, according to our bartender, is an adjacent building which was a jail from which John Dillinger the famous bank robber escaped many years ago.)

We ordered a sampler flight of 4-oz pours to get started, and chose the Dunkel Weizen, Brown Ale, Industrial Porter, Special Forces IPA, Plead the Fifth Anniversary Imperial Red Ale, and Kill 'Em 2x IPA. The first 4 were right to style and very tasty, but we really enjoyed the Impy Red and the 2x IPA. The red was very hoppy (not your typical red), but it worked very well. It's called an 'anniversary' ale, but I hope they keep it as a regular offering. The brewery also has a Bourbon barrel-aging program for some of their beers, and our server offered us tiny samples of the bba Barleywine and a stout with sour cherries. Both were excellent.

The food menu has a nice variety of deli sandwiches, a burger, pizza, pasta dishes and fried chicken. (There may have been more food categories, but that's all I remember.) The fried chicken and a dish of spaghetti and meatballs were ordered, and they were very well done. If we're in the area we'll stop here again.

So I stopped in for a few pints and some pizza for my birthday dinner with my family. I really enjoyed this place. The Taco Pizza, Irish Nachos, were the standout of the food. Of the beer I had the bourbon barrel milk chocolate stout (served in a snifter $9), their Industrial Porter (pint $5), Winter Warlock (9oz $3), Pumpkin ale (pint $5), Crown Blue (9oz $3), Special Forces IPA (9oz $3), Crown Light (tasted out of a flight), and Crown Brown (also tasted out of a flight). That was pretty much every beer on tap. Of the beer, the only ones I did not care for we're the Crown Blue, and Crown Light. I'd buy all the other again.

The place is small and cozy. Very family friendly. Food was very good and service was excellent. I love this place, highly recommend it, and will be going back!

Cheers!

I live in Crown Point and enjoy a trip to "The Crown" at least once a week.

I've been a craft beer fan for 20 years and have tasted my share of good craft beers (and lousy craft beers)from all over the country. Crown Brewing ranks towards the top of my list.

This place had a bit of a rough start until their current brewmaster came on board. There are generally at least 6-8 beers available and they have begun offering "guest taps" from other local breweries. The food is Carriage Court Pizza, which has been a Crown Point establishment for over 30 years. If you like pizza, you'll like the food. If you are looking for something off the wall (like some brew pubs), you may be disappointed in the food offerings.

If you have not been there in the past year and a half, give it a try!

The size of the place is tiny, but could be described as quaint. Nice window view of the brewing operation. Visited for lunch on a Thursday. I chose the buffet, some decent pizza and sausage. The service was fast, friendly and informtive. Chose a pint of Alkoholika and a pint of Java Porter. The Alkohlika was a good dopplebock, decent balance of malt with fruit finish. The alcohol may have showed just a bit. The Java Porter was excellent! Great coffee roast flavor mixed with some sweet choolate notes. Did I mention it was 1/2 price pints on Thursdays? I'll be back.

I'm originally from Crown Point, and live out on the east coast now. This place is exactly what a brewery in CP should be. Crown Brewing doesn't try to be something it isn't--and instead focuses on good service and getting people educated about, and enjoying, good beer. I am a big fan of their IPA, and some of their seasonals are great. I particularly love the Winter Warlock around the holidays. They're not trying too hard, which I really appreciate. Crown is down to earth, comfortable, and accessible. Definitely worth checking out.
