They both wanted to see great craft beer in their local community! The City of Crown Point was home to a large regional brewery(Crown Brewing) that closed in 1916.  They brought back the Crown Brewing name and the brewery has grown and become a part of the Crown Point community again.  The brewery particpates in community events and has teamed up with the City of Crown Point to host an annual Oktoberfest celebration! The brewery is now owned by Dave Bryan.
