Arguably the "coolest" place to hang out in LaPorte Indiana. Everyone I've taken here has loved it. There is no other brewery like this. DO NOT expect fancy. This is not your place if that is what you're looking for. The brewery and lounging area both are located in a unfinished warehouse. Very cool vibe if you ask me. Lots of old couches and chairs to hang around and talk with friends. Typically closes early in the evening hours. You wont see any late night riff raff here. A BREWERY DONE THE RIGHT WAY.

Second oldest brewery in Indiana I believe! Very solid beer choices. Good old boys serving up great beer. Double check the hours before you make a visit and be sure to eat something. Food not available. Again, beer is solid!

This is a place that you will either love or hate.

It is in an old abandoned building and inside you can see seemingly endlessly down a tunnel way in the building. To the right of this is the taproom an brewery. It is just a bunch of random chairs and tables and a few drafts poured by the owners.

They come in plastic cups but you can bring your own glass if you want glass. It is a ghetto and down to earth operation and I love it.

The beer is decent but not spectacular. You can get a free sample of each and choose what you want. I went with the IPA.

It was only like 4 bucks for a half liter so I can say this place is pretty cheap. You can also get beer to go with bottles and probably growlers.
