Speedway, In. — Daredevil Brewing Co has completed construction of their new production craft brewery facility and taproom at 1151 Main Street. The company is set to begin brewing operations during the month of May and will open the public taproom and patio on June 17th.
“We are excited to welcome Daredevil Brewing Co to Main Street and our Speedway community,” said Scott Harris, executive director of the Speedway Redevelopment Commission. “A craft brewery strongly complements the growing diversity of local businesses we have on Main Street, and we can’t wait for it to open.”
Daredevil Brewing Co is one of the most recognized and fastest growing craft breweries in Indiana and has seen tremendous growth over the last three years. The company is relocating to the 2.0-acre site at 1151 Main Street after making a $3 million investment in the construction of the new production brewing facility and taproom while also securing room for additional expansion in the future.
“We are very excited to complete construction of the new Main Street production brewing facility and taproom,” said Shane Pearson, co-owner of Daredevil Brewing Co, “The new facility will allow us to greatly expand our brewing capacity while also having plenty of space in the taproom and outdoor lawn and patio areas to host hundreds of guests on race weekends and for special events like our annual craft beer festival.”
“Daredevil’s welcoming taproom and production craft brewery on Main Street provides an easily accessible destination that encourages even more residents and visitors to experience Speedway’s vibrant community,” said David Lindsey, president of the Speedway Town Council.
The Speedway Redevelopment Commission will celebrate the new business and its economic impact to the Town of Speedway with a grand opening ceremony on Wednesday, June 17 at 11:00 a.m. on the taproom patio at Daredevil Brewing Co that is open to the public. At the completion of the grand opening ceremony the taproom will be open for guests to enjoy a selection of Daredevil beers and tours will be available of the brewery.
