Chapman’s opens 4th Taproom

Chapman’s Brewing Co. officially opens its fourth taproom this week in Wabash.

The brewery is based at 300 Industrial Drive, and started as a Trine University business project under then-professor Scott Fergusson. Fergusson is a businessman who now heads four taprooms, the newest one at 233 S. Miami St., Wabash. A soft opening is planned Wednesday and Thursday, 6-9 p.m.

The grand opening Friday, 3-11 p.m., and Saturday, noon to 11 p.m. will include a small batch of Belgian bitter brown ale along with Chapman’s favorites and wood-fired pizza by the Pizza Diva.

Regular hours will be Friday and Saturday, noon to 11 p.m.

There are now taprooms in Angola, Fort Wayne, Columbia City and Wabash. The Fort Wayne location is within Fortezza coffee shop and the Columbia City Taproom is downtown across from the courthouse. Both were opened last year.

The Angola effort started in 2012 and is supported by a group of local investors. The brewery, in an industrial building near the north side of the city, provides 280 barrels of simultaneous fermentation capacity. Along with the taprooms, Chapman’s cans several of its staples.
