18th Street Brewery

Hand-crafting big and small beers from Gary, Indiana. We Live and Love what we do.

18th Street Brewery is a brewpub in the Miller Beach neighborhood of Gary, Indiana in late 2013. Conveniently located off the Dunes Highway and the Metra 'Miller' stop, 18th Street specializes in both big and small beers, from 9.5% barrel aged Double Milk Stouts to 4.5% Session Pale Ales. We have a kitchen that specializes in small plates, salads, sandwiches, and seasonal offerings. Our large, open front room is great for families. 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.


'Cone Crusher' our 8.6% IPA is bursting with overwhelming amounts of citrusy Amarillo hops. This IPA showcases tropical fruit overtones of orange and mango, while being backed by a pleasing earthiness to make for a crushable beer. 12oz 6pk cans no limit. $13
'Bitches' Bank' our 9.5% Russian Imperial Stout. This sweet, roasty beast of a RIS is brewed with cocao nibs, cinnamon, and vanilla. To this we added a TON of Rye Malt, giving it some very beautiful spicy notes.
500mL bottle. Limit 4. $13

BTW, that BA glass sitting next to 'BITCHES' BANK', that is now available in our merch shop here.
