People's beers may be maddeningly inconsistent, but the taproom is always wonderful!

The brewery itself is located in a weird, sparse area of Lafayette that's like a cross between an industrial park and a retail zone. Like many breweries, it's in a converted warehouse, but unlike many breweries, the people of People's have not tried to excise the warehousiness from their taproom.

This isn't to say that the place seems overly industrial, or that it's uncomfortable. See, the taproom is the nice, comfy part of the warehouse. It's like if someone built a rec room right off of their garage. You can still see and smell the work area, but the relaxation area is homey and cozy.

The bar itself was built with wood scraps donated by local drinkers. It's long and narrow with seating for about 12 people, a small TV, and a free MAME arcade machine.

The decor is woody and mancave-ish. There's lots of posters announcing a local beer events and a wall of Midwestern growlers, but there's nothing edgy or aggressive about the place. Still, it's more harmless than it is bland.

People's ethos is built on friendliness, community, and accessibility ("beer for the people"). They do a damn fine job of reflecting that with their tap room.

One of The best things about living in the middle of nowhere,Indiana is being able to go get beer here.

The beer is awesome,inspiring an overwhelming feeling of reverence & admiration.

The atmosphere is one of cosmic bliss.

Went in today & they had some 72' grateful dead playing on the sound system-they usually have Bob Dylan or some old school blues playin' when i go in early on Wednesdays & that is always nice too.

cheers!

Great job People's Beer! keep it up! please.

Loved this place! Really great service and a good selection of their beers(12 taps 2 on nitro) made this one of my favorite brewpubs that I have visited in Indiana. The prices are also awesome, pints for 3.50 all the time! Definitely recommend stopping by here if you find yourself in Lafayette.
