Ruhe152 offers a very unique architectural style that actually won an award from the State of Indiana Builders Assoc. for its uniqueness and creativity. It is often compared by our customers to buildings normally found only in larger cities which is exactly what we were going for when we designed Ruhe152 as a destination restaurant. You see it right when you walk in to what was a 100+ year old building which has been completely transformed into a stunning yet elegant bistro with custom lighting and textures throughout. There are numerous areas and architectural styles represented in the building including an elegant family dining area; a roomy upper loft with sofa and lounge seating and tables with views down to the first floor; the Taproom offers a more rustic, relaxed feel with a view of the brewing and distillery equipment and large screen TVs to watch your favorite team; our custom bar with room for 14 and finally a private dining room that can be reserved for special events where we serve some of the most luxurious buffets you will ever come across.
Ruhe Brewing Co. has been creating amazing beers since before we opened our doors in 2019. Head Brewer David Michael is a one of a kind talent whose diversity and commitment to excellence has shown from the beginning. With 14 beers on tap at any given time, representing just about every style, texture and color of beer you can think of, Ruhe Brewing Co. is one of the premiere brewers of quality craft beer in the Midwest! Standing out from the crowd is our goal and thankfully, our beers are doing just that as beer reviewers and beer festival organizers have attested to many times with their glowing reviews and awards. Whether you like dark, rich porters and stouts with plenty of flavor, or you prefer the taste of a quality IPA, or you tend to lean more towards a simple, refreshing lager or gose style beer, Ruhe Brewing Co. has what you are craving.
For simply amazing cocktails, the bar at Ruhe152 continues to shine by offering everything from custom crafted concoctions to your all-time favorites. Our bartenders aim to please and most of the time they hit the mark! As of April, the Ruhe Distillery is now up and operational. Due to an obscure Indiana law, we had to wait 18 months after opening before we were allowed to use our Distillery equipment and Dave has wasted no time in crafting some amazing spirits that we will be utilizing in our cocktails as well as making available for purchase by the bottle. Look for our custom crafted Tranquila (100% agave spirit like tequila but we cant call it that because we didn't make it in the tequila region of mexico); Rum and Vodka, followed by our own brand of whiskey and other spirits to follow.
