We visited Fountain Square Brewery Tap Room during their Grand Opening Weekend (Dec. 2-4), finding good beer, good cheer, and no chairs. Okay, who minds standing anyway?!
This is not about the business or who does what but Skip, the head brewer was not there, yet Justin (the 'I can install anything' guy) and Shelly (the 'I can get distribution') gal were great hosts while everybody from all pictured to all others were very friendly and excited about the beer.
Fountain Square had five beers on tap and available for Growler Fills:
A blonde which while lite still has flavor
A Pale (Hop for Teachers) with cascade and centenial as a true homage to many American pale ales (yum)
A very delicious Porter with wonderful chocolate malt and a nice creaminess (reportedly the favorite of crowds so far)
A seasonal Oatmeal Stout that conjurs up images of perhaps wonderful, dark holiday cookies
With distribution at about 30 locations on tap from downtown to Broad Ripple to further North and plenty of beer variations in the works, Fountain Square Brewing is off to a great start! Congrats to all.
Visit them at 1301 Barth Av (yellow front), or just SOUTH of the Fountain on the West side next to Bud's super market. Just getting adjusted but 4 to 9pm Thursday and Friday. Noon to 6pm Saturday and Sunday.
If the tap room is closed, you can walk back to the fountain and try the Stout at the End of the Line Public House on Fountain Square -- a nice gastro pub with great beer.
