Brewery & Winery Blog

The craft beer craze has arrived in LaPorte County. From malty stouts to tart pale ales, local brewers fine-tune each recipe. Today, LaPorte County has more operational breweries than ever. Most of these breweries are locally owned and operated using local ingredients. Get to know the artisans behind a handful of our favorite brews:
