Default Hammond IN? Anything?

I'm stuck at the super 8 in Hammond Indiana for the next few days, anything in walking distance that has good beer?

Head over to Munster and visit Three Floyds.

I'll plus one that, also Clark Street Ale House is on the way... But, you'll need a cab.

Oh man, do I wish I had followed your advice, I went to this place called "Hammond Mowhawks", figuring it was a restaurant, as it said "Ocktoberfest, somethingsomethingsomething Public Welcome".

I go through the first door, and there are two glass doors in front of me. I try one, locked. The other, locked. I go back for the first one to see if it's just tricky, and a dude on the other side says something like "WHO ARE YOU LOOKING FOR!" So I say "oh, I was just hoping to try a beer and maybe something to eat, what's up with this do--" Dude interrupts:"NO NO, THIS IS A PRIVATE CLUB, WHO ARE YOU LOOKING FOR" so I left.

Asshat. How the hell am I supposed to know it's a private club. And also, IT SAYS FRIGGING "PUBLIC WELCOME" ON THE GODDAMN SIGN OUT FRONT.

Jebus. Never going to Hammond again if I can help it.

Sounds like you stumbled on a ho house. They could probably give you something to drink and eat but not what you were expecting.

Yeah, I'd recommend staying at the Hampton Inn in Munster. Not as sketchy of a town (and only 2 miles south or so...)

Your main problem was expecting to be able to WALK anywhere in Hammond.
