Viewers get a unique behind-the-scenes tour of three of the larger breweries in Indiana, plus a look at several other small breweries in the state.
Broad Ripple Brewpub - Indianapolis
Englishman and brewer John Hill came to Indiana and started what is now the Broad Ripple Brewpub. This microbrewery recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, and founder John Hills' love of beer has been extended to many of his former employees and followers.

Three Floyds Brewery and Pub - Munster
As one of the largest craft beer breweries in Indiana, Three Floyds Brewery has close to half the production of their flagship beers distributed in the Chicago market, Southern Wisconsin and parts of Kentucky. Head brewer, Nick Floyd, his brother Simon and father Mike are the three Floyds making great craft beers.
Popular beers include Alpha King American Pale Ale, Robert The Bruce Scottish Ale, Pride & Joy American Ale, Gumball Head Wheat Ale, and Dreadnaught Imperial India Pale Ale.
Upland Brewery - Bloomington
Since 1998, Upland has been brewing lagers and sours featuring unique twists on traditional recipes. Several of their beers have won national and international awards but their focus remains on brewing beer that they like to drink and provide a fresh local option to their community. Upland can be found across all of Indiana as well as in Louisville, KY and south-eastern Wisconsin.
Popular brews include Upland Wheat Ale, Bad Elmer’s Porter, Dragonfly IPA, Helios Ale, and Preservation Pilsner.
