GREENWOOD -

A brewery that had previously been located in Franklin is planning to open again in Greenwood. Our partners at the Daily Journal report Hoosier Brewing Co. owner Brian Nentrup has joined with four new partners and the brewery will move into a historic building in the city's downtown. 

The new location at the former Blind Pig sports bar building will include a restaurant and taproom, in addition to the brewery and a distillery. Nentrup tells the publication he will focus entirely on beverage production and new partner Mike Rincker will manage the restaurant and taproom. 

"We will be brewing some of the old favorites, but honestly we are a different company with the new partners’ influence," said Nentrup. "The feeling will be much different as well since we are focusing heavily on the beverage side of the business in this operation."

The brewery is expected to open in the spring. The publication says the partners have formed a new umbrella company, Hoosier Beverage Brands, that includes the Hoosier Brewing and Hoosier Distillery brands, as well as a taproom called "Tap and Axe." The latter will feature an axe throwing arena.

Nentrup closed the Franklin location in July after receiving more than $130,000 in funding from the city. The Daily Journal says Hoosier Brewing has not asked for any money from the city of Greenwood, though it would be eligible for a G.R.O.W. grant to help with exterior building improvements and facade work.

SB-12 then made its way to the full Senate. Preceded by a lengthy deliberation by the Senate’s Republican caucus, the Senate voted 33-16 in favor of a watered-down...
