News Release

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- With 8 successful Scotty's Brewhouse restaurants around the state of Indiana and a brewery + pizza pub in Broad Ripple, Scott Wise, President and CEO of a Pots and Pans Production, has opened a new restaurant concept in Bloomington, called C3 Bar.

C3 was named for the building number and plot on the site plans for Renwick , a smart growth community on the Southeast side of Bloomington, Indiana. “Crafted Cocktails + Cuisine” is the alliteration for the three C’s. And, a tagline of “Next door, next level” is the theme. Renwick Village was developed by Eric C. Stolberg, President WSProperty Group and his partners.

"This concept is different than our other restaurants," said Wise. "We don't own this concept, but are contracted to manage it for the owners. The concept was a lot of fun to develop and create. I have a great team of passionate professionals that designed an incredible food and drink experience for the Bloomington market."

C3 is a small plates bistro with fresh, hand-crafted cocktails and tapas style small plates that puts a detailed approach and focus towards local products. C3's stylish designed interior allows for a private date for two at one of our tables inside or on the patio. Or, a group can enjoy a semi-private couch and lounge area while sipping on a C3 Classic Manhattan or a buttery glass of Chardonnay from Napa Valley.

"We took a fun, elegant and whimsical approach to classic cocktails and groceries bought from our local Farmer’s Market to develop menus that will change seasonally, with the freshness and seasonality of our produce, meats and vegetables," said Wise. "Our menu is served small plate Tapas style."

Wise isn't done growing the Brewhouse concept either. Construction is currently underway in Ft. Wayne and he is also in talks with several other developers in differently locations throughout the state as was well as Louisville. Another Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Co. location is planned to open in Muncie, Indiana in the Fall of 2015 in the new Marriott hotel being built downtown with the Arc project.

"We are excited about this new concept, but also plan to continue to grow our Brewhouse concept over the next few years, " Wise continued. "Ft. Wayne is just the first step in our growth plans and we hope to branch out of Indiana in the next year. We have lots of locations and new concepts planned up our sleeves in the next several years."

Wise is in talks with local company Local Stake about funding for future growth through social investment opportunities. Stay tuned for more info on this coming soon.
