Ledgeview Brewing Co.
Okay, we here at Ledgeview give up. Winter came, we couldn't prevent it. *heavy sigh* It's in the air (literally) so we decided to ramp up the comfort level by adding a few new things to the menu. Along with our traditional smoked meats you'll now find turkey, on Wednesdays and Thursdays we have fried ribs, and we now have two desserts on the menu: Apple Cherry Crisp and a smoked Chocolate Chip Brownie! YUM!!!
Craig also has some new winter beers available. First up is our Winter Stout. It was time to get something really dark back on the list and we figured while we were at it we'd add some warm winter spices in honor of the season. But wait, we have a little New Year surprise for you. We took one of those kegs of Winter Stout and conditioned it with dried fruits that were soaked in dark rum. We call it The Loneliest Fruitcake and it's only available in bottles. Stop by the brewery and pick up few soon; we only made a few cases and they're going fast.
Now that we're in the new year, you'll also be able to enjoy the newest beer in our Blender Bender series: the Pineapple Cream Pie. It might seem a bit weird to have a tropical inspired beer in the middle of winter, but what a wonderful way take your mind off of Northern Indiana's arctic conditions.
We want to let everyone know we have wine available for those who don't enjoy beer so much. Check out our selection on the second page of our menu (link above). Then again, you may get so wrapped up in our BBQ menu that you forget all about the wine and beer... hahahaha, not likely!!!
Ledgeview Brewing Company blends tradition, creativity, and boldness to produce a Midwest experience with
local brews and delicious smoked meats.
About Ledgeview Brewing Company
It started with one of those homebrew kits... Abby thought it would be a fun gift, a hobby perhaps, that Craig could enjoy so he wasn't so focused on work (a common problem among chefs). Well, it turns out Craig was pretty good at brewing beer (won an award within a year), and, since he was already a chef, it just made sense for him to combine his two passions.
After a late night discussion of what they wanted to do when they grew up (they're in their forties, by the way), Craig said, "All I want to do is cook barbeque and brew my beer." A few days later Abby (who is from Goshen, IN) recalled the conversation over the phone with a hometown friend who said, "You're not going to believe this, but a place just like that is up for sale in Warsaw, Indiana."
A message to the previous owner led to a plane ride (Fall of 2019, pre-Covid-19 when you could still do that and not wear a hazmat suit), which led to a visit of the building, which led to a trip home, which led to a SERIOUS LIFE-CHANGING DISCUSSION, which led to a offer of purchase. A few months and a one pandemic later, Craig and Abby packed up all their belongings (and kids, couldn't forget them), sold their house in Massachusetts, and moved to Warsaw, Indiana to begin what is now called Ledgeview Brewing Company.
People ask us all the time where the name comes from. Well, the house we owned in Massachusetts was on Ledgeview Drive. When Craig started making his homebrew in the garage, he called it the Ledgeview Garage Brewery. Then, when we knew this move was really going to happen, we seriously considered using that specific name. We even thought about knocking out the south wall of the restaurant and installing a glass garage door that would open out to the patio. Then we saw how much that would cost. So yeah, no "Garage."
So here we are, making some serious barbeque and getting ready to brew some amazing beer. If you can, please take the time to come and check us out after we open. We, along with our friends and family, have worked really hard to get the restaurant and brewery ready. That way, when you and your friends come to visit, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy. And who knows, maybe someday we'll find the time (and the funds) to finally install those garage doors.
