Daredevil Brewing Co

Daredevil Brewing Co is an independent production brewery & taproom located in the Speedway neighborhood of Indianapolis. 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 market demand we reached capacity at our original production-only brewery on the southeast side of Indianapolis in mid-2013. To expand we purchased a 2.0-acre site in the Speedway neighborhood of Indianapolis in February 2014.


We relocated all of our operations to the new location in May 2015. While we are most known for our flagship Lift Off IPA since relocating to the new brewery we also now distribute year round on draft and in cans our Muse Belgian Golden Ale, Pils German Pilsner, Rip Cord Double IPA and Vacation Kölsch in addition to a quarterly special release program with a focus on traditional German-style lagers, American IPAs and flavorful ales. Also, since our relocation we have grown from 3 employees to over 20 as we now run an onsite taproom as well as make a lot more beer on draft and in cans to distribute across Indiana.
