About
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

My wife and I went to the Brewery on Saturday night. We usually go there 3-4 times per month and attend the special evenings that they have periodically. I tried a "barvarian burger" from their fairly new burger selections. The sandwich was awesome. My wife...More

I'm not a 'beer connoisseur' ... therefore, I don't know how much good my review will be for those who are. The atmosphere was not cozy - the table/Chairs were not put there for comfort - however, when a group of friends are just going...More

What a hidden jewel in a river town. The brewery is just two blocks from the scenic Ohio River. You can taste a variety of craft beers made with Indiana hops and brewed right there. A fine variety of delicious sandwiches are available. There’s always...More

I have tried this on three very different occasions. It was average. Nothing spectacular. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there.

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!
