Great folks, excellent beer (the espresso coconut porter is my pick), and a cool old building in Aurora's downtown historic district. Good pick for locals, but also definitely worth a detour or special trip!

Went with some friends on 03/16/2018. The food was good and they had quite a selection of their own brews! Overall, great atmosphere and we loved their "AmBrewlance" parked outside! Yes, we'll be back! Tom and Dan - Thank you!

Description
Dan and Lani Valas started Great Crescent Brewery in November 2008 in a small storefront on 2nd Street in Aurora, IN. Since these humble beginnings they have expanded into a historic building built in 1843 which served as the warehouse for the Thomas and JW Gaff Distillery. All food prepared on site - smoked meats, sausages and salmon. Fresh salads and home-made sides can be selected to accompany your meal. Fresh bread baked daily and gourmet cupcakes available for dessert. We are an award winning brewery with a rotating selection of beers to compliment our 4 standards Blonde Ale, Coconut Porter, Harmonie Bier Dark Lager and Aurora IPA. Always 9 of our own hand-crafted beers on draft and 3 gourmet soda's - Sparkling Lime, Vanilla Cream and Root beer. Check our website and FB page for details on monthly events.
