Daredevil Brewing Co

Owners & Founders of Daredevil Brewing CoDaredevil Brewing Co is a production brewery & taproom located in the Speedway neighborhood of Indianapolis founded in 2012 by two award winning craft brewers, Michael Pearson and Bill Ballinger, and fellow craft beer enthusiast, Shane Pearson. Our goal from the beginning was to simply have fun and make craft beers that we enjoy and that we enjoy sharing with others.


We started the brewery with one year round beer, Lift Off IPA, a West Coast Style IPA inspired by many of the classic American IPAs from California that we enjoy. Lift Off IPA quickly grew to become one of the best selling craft beers across Indianapolis and Indiana. Due to demand we reached capacity at our original production-only brewery on the southeast side of Indianapolis in mid-2013 and we started looking at our options to grow. After looking at many locations across the Indianapolis metro area we purchased the 2.0-acre site at 1151 Main Street, Speedway in February, 2014 which allowed us to custom design and build our new brewery and taproom.


While we are most known for our flagship Lift Off IPA since the building of the new brewery we also now distribute year round on draft and in cans our Muse Belgian Golden Ale, Rip Cord Double IPA and Vacation Kölsch. From the taproom we focus on providing a steady stream of options that includes great American Pale Ales, traditional Belgium, English and German style beers, including an extensive lager program, and one off beers we just enjoy making, which means there is always something new to try at the taproom in addition to our year round beers.
