18th Street Brewery

18th Street specializes in both big and small beers, from 9.5% barrel aged Double Milk Stouts to 4.5% Session Pale Ales, and we have a sour program called Sour Note Brewing. We have a kitchen that specializes in small plates, salads, sandwiches, and seasonal offerings. In January of 2014 Drew Fox was named 'Best New Brewer' in Indiana by  Ratebeer.com. Our Double IPA, SINISTER, was named 'Best Fall Brew in Indiana 2013' by VisitIndiana.com.

We now have two locations you can visit. 5417 Oakley Ave in Hammond, IN. This is our production facility that also has a taproom, craft cocktail bar, and kitchen. We are located in downtown Hammond between Hohman and Calumet. We can also be accessed via the South Shore train line- take the train to the HAMMOND stop and walk or call an uber. Families are welcome, cash and credit is accepted. This is a non smoking and non vaping (e-cigs) establishment. 

5725 Miller Ave in the Miller Beach community of Gary, IN. This is a taproom and craft cocktail bar. We offer delivery food service from our neighbors, THE BRASSERIE. This location is easily accessible via the South Shore train line. Get off at the 'MILLER' stop. Families are welcome in our front room. This is a non smoking and non vaping (e-cigs) establishment. 


11 months ago on Friday, November 13th 2015 we packaged and sold BA Hunter from our Gary, IN location. Some folks made the choice to and enjoy it and drink it at its freshest state- as was stated on the bottle label (Fresh is best, do not cellar). Others made the choice to cellar the beer against our recommendation before opening. Sad to say that some of these cellared bottles are showing their age- and not in a good way as we have received a few complaints of off flavors. At the same time, we have had some customers whose cellared bottles were fine and did not have any off flavors. We have sent a few bottles to an independent lab for testing and they all have come back clean.  

First and foremost we value our customers and the quality of beer we produce, so I have made the choice to listen to our customers and make it right by recalling BA Hunter in 22oz bottles that were sold on Friday, November 13th from our Gary, Indiana location. Return your empty or full bottle with this SKU (730957374588) to our Hammond location (5417 Oakley Ave, Hammond, IN 46320) and we will issue you a gift certificate for the full value of the bottle with no questions asked. You will have until the end of 2016 to turn in your bottles and receive your gift certificate. Bottles must be returned in person, we will not be shipping out any gift certificates. If you have any further questions or comments please send them to wade@18thstreetbrewery.com or go to our website for FAQ's on BA Hunter.
