People make our beer great! Our passionate staff brew classic American ales, German lagers, and more with the hope of bringing people together around fresh local beer. Beer for the People... who enjoy hand crafted full-flavored beers.



"Everyone likes great beer... they just don't know it."

People’s Brewing Company

We were established in 2009 and are located in Lafayette, Indiana. We produce hand-crafted beers to fit many people. We brew beers that you want to drink, not just try. Our selection of year-round, seasonal and specialty beers means there is something for everyone. We have a passion for classic styles. American ales, German lagers, Belgian ales, English ales and more can be found all around Indiana and Chicago. Ask for People’s where you buy beer or come see us at the brewery.

The Brewery

The heart of People's Brewing Company's production facility is our 20 barrel brewhouse, designed and built by AAA Metal Fabrications. We have a three vessel system with a Mash and Lauter Tun combo, Kettle, and Whirlpool. We started production on Thanksgiving Day in 2009 with four 40 barrel fermentors and one 40 barrel brite tank. In 2011, we added two 50 barrel fermentors and started bottling our Farmer's Daughter Wheat Ale, People's Pilsner, Moundbuilder IPA and Mr. Brown Imperial Ale. In 2013, we added a 5000 sq ft addition to our production space, allowing for increased fermentation, finishing, and warehousing. Four 80 barrel fermentors and one 80 barrel brite tank were added at that time and we were also able to start canning several beers. Our dedicated brewery team works hard to produce fresh local beer for our community and beyond. Come see the brewery for yourself! We offer free walk-in tours on Saturdays from noon to 4 pm. (Tours at other times are subject to the availability of knowledgeable staff and production space, and may require a fee.)

Joanne Kuhn Titolo works from her Terra Luna Studio in Battle Ground in a variety of materials. Her BA from Purdue University focused on oil painting, but a love of natural and found objects developed into sculptural forms, which evolved into forming smaller sterling silver adornments and jewelry pieces.

Joanne still creates larger works, both in sculpture and painting, but can typically be found curved over her jeweler’s bench, saw in hand.

Chelsie began drawing as a child and the craving to create has never left her…

She has grown into a self taught oil painter, watercolor painter and illustrator, based in Indiana. Between her time as a full time Graphic Designer she is experimenting with her favorite mediums, breaking into the surface design industry, and teaching on Skillshare!

Nature and curiosity inspires and drives her artwork. Currently, she is caught up exploring and mastering skulls and flowers, both as individual pieces and as a work of art together. She is moving from working very tight and detailed to breaking her pieces apart with a more textured and visual brush stroke approach.

People’s Live presents Mike Oregano @ People's Brewing Company
Mar 10 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Mike Oregano debuts at People’s Brewing Company Tuesday March 10th! Reggae, Jazz, and Hip Hop from the East Coast!

Music starts at 6PM. 21+

Listen: https://mikeoregano.bandcamp.com/

Video: https://youtu.be/bpVhHYzZev4

Truly a unique act unlike anything yet, Mike Oregano has fully commercialized both the aesthetic and sonic details of the “One Man Band” concept. Performing in a unique Reggae/Hip Hop/Jazz style, he is sure to turn heads wherever he is rockin’!

Mike uses his feet to hit the drums as well as an array of fully intuitive pedal boards complete with: loopers, bass splits, synthesizer sounds, etc. He records the rhythm section (guitar and bass) on the spot, and layers over it with drums, solos, fills, etc. all while singing, rapping, or talk boxing, and soloing on his guitar simultaneously.

The Sawdusters are A four piece Americana band from Louisville, KY. Through relentless touring, they’ve become mainstays of the Midwest Americana scene. In September of 2015, they set ten highway-tested, fine-tuned songs loose in the confines of LA LA Land Studios. The result is “Midwest Heart/Southern Blues”.

The new album is a gritty, upbeat collection of songs, full of characters who were developed while staring over the dash of a beat up Ford van cruising through towns in the South and Midwest, whose better days are behind them.
