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.

Support Indiana Brewers #supportindianabrewers

Indiana loves small brewer's and enjoys the plethora of different, unique, and delicious beers they brew. Indiana, we the brewer's need your help to keep our beer coming to you! 

(from Sun King's Facebook page); 'Unfortunately, there are laws written a long time ago that keeps Indiana's small brewers from producing enough beer to supply the whole state.  
Sun King and 3 Floyds have launched a campaign to help update these laws. By showing your support and contacting your legislator, you are supporting small Indiana businesses, helping them grow, hire more people, reinvest in our communities, and of course, craft more of the brews that you love.
Visit supportindianabrewers.com for facts on the subject and to make your voice heard! #SupportINBrewers'
