Love Great Beer

Celebrating Craft Beer with Each Batch

We love great beer. Our small-batch, handcrafted approach celebrates the art of brewing. Starting on the foundation of traditional styles, we take it up a notch with specialty spices, aromatic hops and increased alcohol. That’s how we create big ales. We take great pride in Indy as a growing beer city and we’re honored to share our respect for beer with you.

It’s our mission to brew the best beer in Indy and to do all we can to add to the beer culture of our Indiana city. We fill growlers, serve pints and offer carryout bottles from our downtown taproom. Indiana City beer is also available at select craft beer bars around the city.

What’s in a Name?

Indiana City is the literal definition of “Indianapolis” and it’s a statement of pride in Indy’s vibrant arts scene and rich heritage. Indiana City celebrates a promising future for the Circle City, one pint at a time.

The Arts & Beer Culture

We understand the important role of visual arts in the craft beer experience. When you smell and taste a beer you’re experiencing the artistry of the brewer who made it. The visual aesthetic of the label arts or the tap handle it was poured from affects that experience too. Done well, we believe visual art heightens that experience and leads to an even greater respect for beer. We combine our vision with the extreme talent of Aaron Scamihorn (RONLEWHORN) to create the perfect marriage between taste and aesthetic through our labels and media.

Indiana City is an outlet for local artists to display their work, perform, collaborate and expand local creative expression. The visual arts are woven into every beer we brew. Each First Friday of the month we feature a new, local artist who adds both beauty and conversation to our taproom. We are home to the Craft Brew Doodle Crew, an extremely passionate and talented group of artists who create themed collaborative art pieces in a round robin style experience. Catch them every third Thursday in our brewery taproom.

The awakening has commenced and is soon to be upon us. This Saturday the beer geeks and barrel hounds will swarm in hoards for a taste of the crypt nectar. ..Crushin' Roulette, BBA Russian Imperial Stout needs little introduction to the Indy craft aficianado but if you will be in attendance for your first time this weekend we look forward to sharing with you our highest touted release…Udder Annihilation, BBA Double Milk Stout is so nice we dip it twice. The waxing party starts tomorrow and you already know this one praises the pastry gods. ..Crimson Bombshell, BBA Imperial Amber Ale has been a loyal fan favorite since our early days and we can’t deny releasing her malty exquisiteness from time to time…BBA Beast, Strong Dark Belgian Ale is so damn delicious we can’t believe it took us this long to meld our belgiany goodness with woody bourbon. This beer is a treat from start to finish…Le Haymaker, Cognac Barrel Aged Oatmeal Stout is the young up and comer of the motley crüe. Our beloved Shadow Boxer has won the hearts of stout fans across Indiana and this entire country. We wanted to give #AFTC18 patrons something truly special that may never return again. This oaky well-rounded oatmeal stout is somewhat of a delicacy and should be appreciated for it’s homage to barrel experimentation and the beautiful union of spirit-aged wood and beer….Tickets are still available and we cannot wait to share this epic day with all of you beautiful people!
