Beer in and from Speedway, IN; Daredevil now in cans!

Daredevil Brewing continues to grow with a tap room selection of 7-10 beers as well as beer in cans. Lift Off IPA has been in cans across Indiana again since 2013 and has been joined in the Speedway Tap Room of Daredevil by seasonal specialties which included Vacation Kölsch in July, and now features 16 oz cans of Muse, Belgian style golden ale, and J.W.P. American Stout, with Rip Cord double IPA coming in December. The Daredevil teams hopes to expand seasonal beer can sales to distribution points in Indiana during 2016.

Lift Off IPA is their flagship beer with six seasonals rotating through the year: Slip Stream Pale, Vacation Kölsch, Muse Belgian Golden Ale, Carnival Saison, J.W.P. Stout, and Rip Cord Double IPA. With the large Speedway facility Daredevil has been able to slip in some special beers on tap such as a Märzen lager-style beer, and a German style Pils, also a lager-style.

The Daredevil Brewery & Taproom is located at 1151 Main Street, Speedway, IN with the taproom open Tuesday to Thursday: 3 to 9 pm, Friday: 3 pm to 10 pm, Saturday: 11 am to 10 pm, Sunday: 11 am to 8 pm (closed Mon.)

Daredevil opened their Speedway brewery on June 17, 2015 to a packed taproom and featured their inside as well as outside patio space. This brewery gave them substantially increased production over their previous location east of Indianapolis and a recent addition of equipment is providing them with 40% more capacity than they had at their June opening. When asked about the choice of Speedway as the location, co-owner Shane Pearson told Indianabeer, "The new location is much easier to access for our wholesale distribution business and we have worked very hard to create a welcoming taproom and patio experience which is only a few minutes from downtown while being easily reachable from anywhere in the metro area by car, public transit and a future trail and bike path that will be adjacent to our property." Pearson added, "A major factor in our acquiring the 2.0-acre site was that it provides us room to grow the production facility over time. We fully expect that the next phase of expansion will be even larger, add even more jobs and might only take a few years to happen if we continue to grow anywhere near our current pace."

They held their second-ever charity event in late August, their Hops and Flip Flops beer festival which raised money to benefit local charities and service organizations including Brackets for Good, Speedway Lions Club, and Speedway Trails.

Meanwhile, there will be a nearby brewing neighbor making Speedway a new beer destination! Big Woods Brewing broke ground in September just down Main Street in Speedway. Big Woods Speedway, which will feature a 7,500-square-foot restaurant and 10,000-square-foot beer garden, is the third Big Woods location in Indiana. Co-owner Jeff McCabe says it will take the best of what it has developed in its Nashville and Bloomington locations to create a destination experience for residents and the millions of visitors who come to Speedway annually.
