CARMEL, IN – Danny Boy Beer Works, the fast-growing craft brewery based in Carmel, Indiana, announces the grand opening of its new South Bend location, Danny Boy Draft Works Notre Dame, located in the heart of the Notre Dame campus and athletic fields.

At the same time, work continues on construction of a new Danny Boy Draft Works IU, located in downtown Bloomington at 208 South Dunn Street, just a block south of the famous Kirkwood strip. The new eatery and draft works is scheduled to open in early August.

“We are excited about expanding in South Bend and Bloomington, introducing our great craft beers to more Notre Dame and Indiana University fans,” said Kevin “KP” Paul, owner of Danny Boy Beer Works. “We plan to embrace the spirit of both of these awesome schools by being open early on game days and by including sections for those who are under 21.”

In South Bend, the new northern Indiana home for Danny Boy craft beers is a partnership with Scott Berry, who serves as general manager and operating partner for the Draft Woks, which held its official grand opening this month. The family-friendly eatery and draft works is located inside the Overlook Complex at the Notre Dame Campus. They are proud to feature 16 taps, 12 taps dedicated to Danny Boy Beers, all of which are brewed at Danny Boy Beer Works in Carmel.

The craft beer eatery and draft works can seat up to 154, including 64 on the patio. The décor is similar to the mothership, Danny Boy Beer Works, in Carmel. It is open at 10:30 a.m. daily for lunch. On the menu is an assortment of hand-crafted pizzas, strombolis, sub sandwiches, salads, appetizers and a Kid’s Menu. There are also eight big-screen TVs for diners to enjoy and there are 34 dedicated parking spots. It is open until Midnight, Sunday-through-Thursday, and until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

In Bloomington, the new Danny Boy Draft Works IU will feature 26 craft beers on tap, including guest taps to go along with Danny Boy classics. The building will feature a brand new bar upstairs with kitchen and dining downstairs; a banquet and party room; 16 big screen TV’s, an under-21 seating section and a menu that will feature a variety of pastas and a variety of inexpensive dishes designed to meet the tastes of today’s Bloomington crowd.
