Default Working in Indiana, need craft beer?

Last weekend I drove from San Diego to northern Indiana for work. I would like to Check out the local beer scene. I know Three Floyds is in this area.

Would be really cool to get in on a home brew session. I have Sundays off. Need something to do.

I'm in southern, In so can't help ya on the home brew, but you are in a great area for Indiana and Michigan craft brews. Try that Three Floyds, you'll be amazed

Depending on how far north you are, you could drive up to Marshall, MI.
Dark Horse Brewing is there. They have some fine brews, love their amber.

We are most likely on the same job. I'm working at the BP refinery.
