Notes

Visited: February 11, 2002

Opened: 2000

Annual Production: 475 bbl

In continuous operation since 1888, Oyster Bar's kitchen specializes in - you guessed it - oysters, which make an excellent accompaniment to the seven beers they have on tap. They were recognized as "Indiana's Most Decorated Brewery 2003" as a result of the twelve medals they earned at the Indiana State Fair.

Despite all that, the management of the Oyster Bar decided to drop the brewery side of their operation in December 2003.
