Carmel-based Danny Boy Beer Works is continuing its statewide expansion. The brewery is celebrating the grand opening of its pub and eatery near the Indiana University campus in Bloomington.

Danny Boy Draft Works IU opened this month just seven months after the opening of its first Draft Works location near the University of Notre Dame campus in South Bend. The new, two-story location has seating for 90 guests with the lower level available for private parties. 

"After our successful opening in South Bend, near the campus of Notre Dame, we are thrilled to be open in Bloomington," said Kevin Paul, owner of Danny Boy. "We wanted this place to be fun for students of all ages and for parents from Carmel and central Indiana who are visiting their kids."

Danny Boy invested nearly $1 million in the Bloomington location, which created about 20 jobs.
