LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — If you've been around Lafayette awhile, you've most likely spent an evening or two at Lafayette Brewing Company. This week, the brewpub is commemorating its 25th anniversary on Main Street with a week-long celebration.

On Sept. 17, 1993, Greg Emig opened the doors on 622 Main. Over the years, the brewpub has been known for its local flair, fresh food and of course, its beer. However, it's more than just food and beer. The history speaks for itself.

"We were the first brewery in Indiana to get the small brewers' permit," said Emig. "We are currently the second oldest operating brewery in the state behind the Broad Ripple Brewpub down in Indianapolis. So we have a week of fun stuff coming up."

The week includes special beer releases and deals on old menu items. A special collaboration beer with the Broad Ripple Brew Pub was released Sunday commemorating 53 years of Indiana brewing history. Monday, LBC will release its 25th Anniversary brew -- 25 Alive, a juicy double IPA. The week culminates in the anniversary party concert Wednesday at 7:30 in the upstairs Beer Hall.

Cheers, to 25 years, LBC!
