GREENFIELD — Something good’s brewing for Hancock County craft beer aficionados as a new microbrewery sets its sights on a spring opening in Greenfield.
Wooden Bear Brewing Co. will occupy the 6,000-square-foot historic building at 21 W. North St. in Greenfield that was home to the city’s first opera house in the 1800s.
Greenfield resident Dan Noah and three home-brewing friends from Indianapolis decided to take their love of craft brews to the next level, and with no less than a half dozen beer brewers in Indianapolis, they felt moving just down the road a piece might be an excellent business move for a new venture.
“We just moved to Greenfield in June, and we really like the community,” Noah said. “There’s nothing like this in Hancock County, and we felt like it was an untapped market.”
