WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- When you go inside Brokerage Brewery, you'll feel like you're at home.

"I really like that aspect of it," Joe Wetli explained.

Wetli lives just around the corner, an he's already become one of the first regular customers.

"The quality of the brews they have," he said. "Being that they have at least 12 taps, really, is nice."

"You know their name," said co-owner Stacy Grove. "They know your name. They know each other's names, and it just becomes this community hub."

Sounds a little like Cheers, and that's exactly what Grove wants.

"They feel good when they come in," she added. "They feel good when they leave, because of the people, and the beer is just the side piece of that."

Head Brewer Corey Patterson has been brewing professionally for about four years, and looks forward to this new challenge.

"I actually like having a neighborhood brew pub," said Patternson. "I think its a very important part in any community, and it's one of the things that really attracted me to Brokerage."

The brewery has 12 taps, and those will soon be filled with in-house craft brews. Customers can also bring their own food.

"It makes for kind of an inexpensive date night," said Grove. "You can pack a picnic, and bring your own food in."

Another way to feel that living room ambiance.

"We have had so many people from this neighborhood that just walk down, have a beer and then walk home and comment on how nice it is that they don't have to drive anywhere," Grove added.

Convenient and comfortable. Just like home.

The brewery is located on Covington Street in West Lafayette. It's open from 3 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
