House Beer

Fresh ideas are a huge part in what makes up the craft beer industry as a whole. There are few better examples of this than Central State Brewing and their 100% focus on Brett-styled beer. By venturing into this market of other brewers that also make 100% Brett-style, they have been able to create a culture of appreciation for this unique blend. Similar to a sour beer, 100% Brett styled beers exhibit an unconventional beer flavor that gives off a unique funkiness and a pleasant tart quality. Crafted by three brewers from Indiana, Central State Brewing has already left their mark in the craft beer renaissance with their never ending experimentation and collaboration, and the constant search for something better.


One of Central State Brewing Co. most popular beer is called simply, House Beer. This rustic blonde ale contains a low 4% ABV but still packs a full spice flavor. This beer provides a nice base for all of their other beers as Central State uses their house brew to experiment with other flavors. This beer is well paired with seafood or poultry as the French-Belgian styled beer touts spicy rye flavors with a yeast character from this 100% Brett-styled beer. The Central State Brewing Co. House Beer is a craft brew staple that sets the stage for what a 100% Brett beer should taste like.
