BPC - Episode 208 - Ellison Brewery comes to Indiana

An East Lansing Michigan(Go Green) brewery has made it’s way to Indianapolis and we couldn’t be happier.  Ellison Brewery has been quickly making a name for itself and rapidly expanding.  A few sips of their brews and you’ll know why.  Bold, crisp flavors while staying true to the styles make Ellison a delight for the most passionate of craft beer lovers.   We had the pleasure of spending a Sunday afternoon with one of the spirited mangers, Kevin, to dig a bit deeper into the brewery and much deeper into some fine craft beers.   Not only is the beer fantastic, but they have committed to pairing their beers with some outstanding food to keep you coming back for more. The great location within walking distance of so many great downtown spots, especially Lucas Oil, will make Ellison a must stop for many years to come.  Tune in, and then dive into Ellison Brewery.  Tell ‘em the Pigs sent ya.    After the show, start filling your own Tavour crate at https://about.tavour.com.    Cheers!   Be sure to check us out Sundays on Indy In-Tune. www.indyintune.com   Members of the Hopped Up Network.
