What is Destination Local?

Some of the finest craft beers in the country can be found right here in the Midwest. “Buying Local” no longer means around the corner or across town. We want to take craft beer drinkers on a journey with different styles of beer by pushing the boundaries with barrel aging and utilizing unique blends of malts, hops and spice. The Destination Local series is a true artisanal approach to craft brewing. Small, hand- crafted, limited release batches where you can explore different styles without ever checking a bag or sitting in the dreaded middle seat.
