BROWNSBURG, Ind. -- Brownsburg is no longer a dry town when it comes brewing craft beers.

Mind Over Mash Brewing Company officially opened Saturday May 5, the first taproom to actually brew its beer within Brownbsurg’s city limits. 

“Indiana is a great place to open breweries, central Indiana has shown a lot of acceptance of craft beer,” said Michael Huffman, co-owner of Mind Over Mash Brewing Company. “When looking for a location, we noticed Hendricks County is a little deficient in that area of craft beer and we saw a lot of growth potential in Brownsburg.”

The brains behind the brewery, two engineers, Michael Huffman, a software engineer, and Bobby Klene, an electrical engineer. The two became friends several years ago through similar interests: a taste for Indy’s “foodie” scene and the love of craft beer.  

“It’s always been Bobby’s dream to open a brewery, and a long desire of mine has been to open a restaurant,” says Huffman. “Our plan is to open a taproom restaurant within the next year.”

For now, the brewery is pairing with local food trucks to have food available for guests of the new beer taproom location.  

As to what to expect from the beer, Klene, co-owner and head brewer, has been home-brewing for more than ten years, with recipes curated over that time.  

Huffman says guest can enjoy their American and Belgium style ales at their “hop-forward” brewery.  

“With our engineering backgrounds, we bring a different perspective and a good outlook of what we want with the brewery,” says Huffman.  

Mind Over Mash Brewing Company is located at 468 Southpoint Circle, Suite 106, Brownsburg.  The brewery is opened Wednesday and Thursday from 5pm to 9pm, Friday from 4pm to 11pm, Saturday from 11am to 11pm, and Sunday 11am to 6pm.
