The Paper of Wabash County

Chapman’s Brewing Co. will open its Wabash location on March 17.

Founder Scott Fergusson announced the date during the taping of the March episode of “Wabash County Life” on Thursday, Feb. 23.

The complete episode will be available for viewing beginning Wednesday morning, March 1.

In addition to discussing the opening, The Paper editor Joseph Slacian and Fergusson discussed, among other things, why the company chose to locate in Wabash County, what Chapman’s patrons should expect at the Wabash location, and the state of craft beer and microbreweries in the United States.

“One of our investors said, ‘If you really want to see a community that understands growth and really wants to grow, you need to talk to Wabash,’” Fergusson said during the interview.

The Wabash location is Chapman’s fourth tap house. It also has sites in Angola, Fort Wayne and Columbia City.
