Indiana Beer News – April 27

Logo-FourHorsemen-SmallerThere’s another startup brewery in South Bend and here’s what Eric Strader and I have  learned. Four Horsemen Brewing Co. is located at 710 Fellows St., owned by Sam and Ben Roule. They plan a production brewery, bottling, with a tasting room using the equipment they bought from Mishawaka Brewing a couple of weeks ago. These tanks have been moved from Elkhart already. Distribution will be through Indiana Beer Inc., formerly Metro Beverages distributors which Sam and Ben sold a while back. More pictures, etc. at the link above to their facebook page. This weekend: More, including liquor store tastings, can be found at IndianaBeer’s Calendar.
