Crown Brewing – Crown Point

by David Wichlinski

     Speaking of some really neat venues to go with some quality craft beer, Crown Brewing right off the square in Crown Point fits right in the discussion. Maybe it’s a personal preference, but the bar fit snug in the middle of a big-but-not-Gary-big town square just appeals to my inner soul. Throw in some local acoustic talent and a special that I don’t have to think to order and you have yourself one hell of a night on the town. The bar makes a good social presence to spread the word about their products, too. I’d recommend following @CrownBrewing on Twitter– they do a great job on keeping followers in the know about what’s on tap. Honestly, it’s all good no matter what it is.
     Crown does one of the most unique beers I’ve ever heard of with their White Russian Java Porter they call ‘The Dude’, a fitting tribute to the cult class movie ‘The Big Lebowski’. I usually don’t get too carried away with a more accentric style of beer such as this one, but I was pleasantly surprised this Porter agreed with my pallet. If I had to recommend something more conservative from Crown’s collection, I’d have to go with their Special Forces IPA, which is good compliment to summer nights outside. In terms of the people, it’s always does draw a chill crowd no matter the night flocking to the laid-back atmosphere. It’s too bad it’s not right up on the Indiana Dunes – putting your feet in the sand would be the perfect form of imagery to describe Crown Brewing.
