18th Street Brewery was founded as a home brewery by Drew Fox in 2010. After years of hands on learning and exploration, 18th Street Brewery became official with the release of SINISTER DIPA in 2013. Shortly after the SINISTER release we opened a 3,200sq.ft. brewpub in an old dry cleaners in Gary, IN. Quickly outgrowing that space we purchased a 32,000sq.ft. warehouse in Hammond, IN. Our Hammond location now houses our production, packaging, barrel program, a taproom and a full service kitchen. Our original Gary, IN now houses a small 10 barrel open fermentation system, as well as a taproom, craft cocktail bar and kitchen.
