It’s Official…Levity Brewing is a Licensed Brewery!
The text came to me at 10:58am Friday morning from Jared Herman, one of the co-founders of the now-open Levity Brewing in Indiana, PA:
“As of 15 minutes ago-we are a licensed brewery!”
You could feel the excitement radiating from the screen.
That’s right, after months of construction, planning, brewing, and patience, Indiana County now has its first operating brewery in over 75 years! Levity officially passed its final Liquor Control Board (LCB) inspection Friday morning and is now certified to sell growlers of their initial tap offerings to go. Jared, along with fellow owners Erich Walls and Luke McKevly, still await their occupancy permit before they can offer pints to craft beer enthusiasts, but the home-grown craft beer is finally flowing through the streets of Indiana and you can grab some to enjoy in the comfort of your home.
I was one of the fortunate few who got to see the taproom and brewhouse when it was as bare bones as it could get and saw how it all came together as it stands today. A project three years in the making finally bears the fruits of its labor as you can stock up on Headlamp Stout, Hoodlebug Brown Ale, Rabbit in the Rye Pale Ale, and Conundrum Black IPA.
Levity is the first of two craft breweries calling Indiana home. Noble Stein Brewing is currently in planning about 1.5 miles down the road and is hoping to open its doors in early summer 2016.
