Breakfast Cookies Milk Stout

Iechyd Da Brewery

Elkhart, IN 46516

The beer tends to be sessionable and varies from easy drinking English Milds to hoppy American IPAs. No hard liquor or BMC beers here. We sell what we brew and not much else, but with more than 8 taps and 2 handpulls, there's bound to be something for most everyone! The pizzas, sandwiches and snacks are also made in-house. If you're looking for a classic nosh, you gotta try the soft pretzels with house beer cheese or beer mustard!
