Back in the Summer of 2011, we got the crazy idea to startup a brewery, not because we wanted to be on the bandwagon, but because we wanted something different, something our talents and passion for beer could make happen. Out technical background in Microbiology, Chemistry, and Automation, made up the perfect storm needed to produce quality beer with a higher level of consistency and with improved shelf stability. Our passion for beer and diversity of tastes allowed us to craft carefully refined recipes that we know will delight you.
We chose Fountain Square because of the community. Since we will be the first to admit our creativity and talents exist on a side of the brain that has little capability to draw, we have this admiration and attraction to those whose talents reside in the arts. We have connected to this community over the past year and look forward to being a vehicle for expressing its artistic nature. Fountain Square is a community of hard working, creative, fun loving, and genuine people. They are probably the most helpful people we’ve ever met. We are truly honored to be a part of the community and will strive to be worthy ambassadors and stewards.
We’re home to the biggest slice in Broad Ripple. We wanted to shake things up a bit – but also capture the New York / Itallian style pizzeria and eatery – with the flavor and flare of quality and customer service in a unique great atmosphere.
