Ledgeview Brewing Co.
It was a long winter and a seemingly endless spring but thankfully we've finally made it to the unofficial start of summer. In honor of the warm weather, we here at Ledgeview Brewing Co. are happy to be serving excellent BBQ and refreshing beer smoked and brewed (respectively) on site.
Our core 5 beers are up and running and we can't wait for you to stop by and have a pint (or two). They all came out perfect and we can't wait for you to give them a try.
New to the list is the Nit Wit, our orange infused Hefeweizen that was born from a mistake (not ours). Also, in the fermenter you'll find our Belgian Dark ale we lovingly call the Dominatrix. That one should be ready by next week so pop into the restaurant soon and see if she's cracking her whip yet. Next up will be an American IPA (super bitter and hoppy), a Brown ale, and a New England inspired Berliner Weisse. As always, keep checking back to see what's currently on tap and what's brewing.
We also 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.
