A well-known Jasper family is now part of the craft beer movement. The Hanselman family, which owns the Schnitzelbank Restaurant, will hold a ribbon cutting at the Schnitz Brewery & Pub in Jasper next month.
The Schnitz Brewery & Pub says it received a Letter of Authority from the State of Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission making it official this week. The brewery says there will be four staple beers on tap. They include the Schnitz Blonde, Schnitz Hefe, Schnitz Porter and the Schnitz IPA. The brewery will also serve a seasonal beer and root beer for the non-beer drinkers.
“We are very excited for the public to try our beer. Craft beer is a passion for our family and also a natural tie-in with our German heritage,” Owner Alan Hanselman said.
The family also owns Schnitzelbank Catering, Hampton Inn and KlubHaus 61 in Jasper.
The official ribbon cutting and grand opening is tentatively scheduled for October 1 at 4:00 p.m.
