The Barley Island Brewing Company has been crafting award
winning beers for their restaurant and pub in Noblesville, Indiana
since the late 90's. Wanting to step it up a notch, owner and
brewer, Jeff Eaton, joined forces with long time friend and
colleague, Eric Smith, to open the Deer Creek
Brewery, Noblesville's first production brewery.
Pat and Dougy Fresh sat with owners, Jeff and Eric, along with their rep(and past guest), Emily Grounds to get the scoop on this massive facility. Also joining us for the afternoon was Mr. Sean Webster of Monon Beverage Brokers who gave us a pre-show tour of the brewery.
Being one of the forefathers of Indy brewing, Jeff has a wealth of history and knowledge on brewing and the brewing scene which has exploded in Indy and the US.
Tune in for a humorous ride through the history of some of Jeff's long time staple beers, such as Dirty Helen, as well as the many new beers now flowing out of Deer Creek.
