This place has been open for two years and is less than a ten minute drive from the Three Floyds, but somehow I've never heard of it, just happened upon it while tooling aimlessly through northwest Indiana.
The outside of the joint is especially nondescript, and I told my friend that there was no way the inside of the place could live up to its name. Most likely it would be one of those semi-beer literate poseur bars that cater to tubby suburban types, the sort of place where officeworkers stop for a couple pints of Harp before having to go home to their cold wives and fat children.
We were wrong. The place was adorable. Very dark, with murals all along the walls, a wonderfully un-hip, blue collar clientele, and live concert blu-rays playing above the bar (some blues, then Cheap Trick doing Sgt Pepper in its entirety). Very friendly and completely unpretentious: exactly what I like in my beer bars.
The selection was great and varied. Some harder to find regionals, some midwest staples, some big, some small, some hoppy, some sessionable. Everything was reasonably priced, too, and tickers will be pleased to know most of the beers were offered in small sizes.
There's not much else to say, because there's not much to this place--and that's the glorious point. This isn't a beer mecca where you have to wait in a line for a half hour to get in (and then pay out the ass once you're there). It's just a nice, dark, relaxed pub where decent people go to drink great beer.
