Terre Haute has a storied past with the brewing and distilling industry. It's one of the many aspects that helped put this town on the map! Some local Hautians today are still pursuing that passion. Here are five unforgettable places to go to support local brews and booze:
TERRE HAUTE BREWING CO.
Bearing a well-established name (dating back to 1837!), the Terre Haute Brewing Co. is located in what was once the heart of the local brewing district (near Poplar & Ninth streets). The THBC offers a variety of events, food, and beer that they brew in-house! From light beer that most will enjoy to the hoppy brews that you learn to love, the Brewing Co. really has it all. They partner with the community often and you can bring your pets in for a visit, too.
This venue made a big splash in the Wabash Valley with its entry in 2015 into the area's burgeoning wine-making scene. With its scenic northern Vigo County locale, the winery has enjoyed continuous support from the community as a popular wedding & events venue. In addition to its selection of home-grown and regional wines, Sycamore Winery has its very own microbrewery, Big Leaf Brewing. Bonus: they have the best wine slushies!
7th & ELM BAR & GRILLE
Did you know that 7th & Elm brews their own brand of beer in the basement of its historic building? Old 41 Brewing Co. has history in the town, along with some avid followers. They have a variety of brews, so you should be sure to find one that suits your taste.
On the city's south side, WaterTower Estates has recently made its home on a quaint, quiet property on West Springhill Drive. They host events, weddings, parties, and just opened their very own brewery! Give them a visit in these upcoming fall months for some stellar views.
M. MOGGER'S RESTAURANT & PUB
Like the modern-day iteration, M. Moggers is located across the street from the one-time massive brewing complex of the old Terre Haute Brewing Company. Known for being the home of Champagne Velvet, the beer that originated the brewing craze here in town, Mogger's resides in a building with a rich brewing tradition! Check them out for some history and memorabilia—reminisce in the mood lighting and great atmosphere.
