Beer, its that simple..no fancy food, free chips and pretzels. Good Beer. Frequent there for the tastings, which are always free! No stuffy beer folks here, its a rare "Blue Collar" brewery, with hreat beer at a modest price.

This place is unique. Seemed very friendly but it is like being in someone's garage. My husband liked the beer they had. I usually prefer a wheat type beer and they didn't have any. I'm sure if you went there with friends it would be...More

Brewery in an old factory building in LaPorte. If you like GREAT beer, you have to try it. There are no circuses here...it's purely a brewhouse, with the exception of the fantastic Oktoberfest they host every year during September. Other breweries as well as an...More

The beer here was awesome! The prices are very fair too if you want to buy any beer to go. I loved the tour given by the owner as well. He explained their processes for brewing and choosing which beers to brew. My only complaint...More

Chuck has been making great beer from this location since the mid 1990s--right next to the railway and Larsen-Danielson. Not much to see at the brewery, but who cares! The beer is fantastic. I specifically like the Belle Gunness Stout--which to me tastes similar to...More
