What can I say about my local Brewery? (Well, one of, anyway - we have 2!). People's taproom rocks. Their beers are always kick-ass, and no matter what flavor profile I'm in the mood for, they have something to fit the bill. The staff, from Sean to Danyel to Abel and the rest, are always friendly and awesome. The other patrons are always fun to talk to, too.
We're usually in 2 or more times per week for a pint.
Can't wait to see People's expand and such. Hopefully they'll move into brewpub territory someday... :)

The bar in the taproom was built from wood donated by people in the area.
A lot of the regulars are cooks, chefs, organic gardeners, and just all around cool people.
This *is* a People's brewing company. They listen to and love their customers. They love what they do. It shows all through their beers.
Their beers range from the hoppy-but-balanced Mound Builder IPA, to the rich and malty Mr. Brown. My favorites are Mr. Brown, Newman's ESB and Maltster (a very early offering).
The atmosphere is sometimes very laid back and chatty, and sometimes a bit crowded! Their taproom seats probably, hm, less than 30 well-acquainted folks, but it doesn't stop us locals from stopping in often for pints and growler fills.
I hope, truly hope, that they keep growing in popularity. I'd love everyone to enjoy the same excellent quality beer that I do week after week.

Great place to drink a beer. Small tasting room with a beautiful bar and a few tables. Behind the bar is a huge window looking at the brewhouse. The staff is very friendly and will answer any question you ask. The bar fills up with great beer conversation and great pints. Be sure though, they do not serve food. Its a microbrewery, not a brew pub. Big brewhouse with free tours upon request. The only problem with their 6 tap bar is there is only 6 taps. They really need more! Great flagship, seasonal, and small batch beer!

I love people's brewing! located on north 9th street in lafayette and not easy to find. it's a garage door painted with their logo that you have to do a U turn just to get to. haha, all part of the experience. I live very close so I just ride my bike. It's like 5 bar stools and a bartender so you just have to drink and talk about beer, my two favorite things. no food, just peanuts. they have a pilsner(which is my go to session), aberrant amber, mound builder IPA, newman's ESB, maltster, LayFlatter lager, hopkilla(sometimes), and mr.Brown....mmmm mr. brown. their prices are great too. 2.50 pints on thursday and 6 dollar, that's right, $6 growler refills on wednesday. free tours whenever you want and the place smells like malted barley. YOU CAN'T BUY THAT KIND OF AMBIANCE! wahoo beer!

Local Microbrewery that I love to frequent.
Atmosphere- Great setting. Somewhat difficult to find and not a lot of parking making it more enchanting and the free tours make you bask in the ambiance of a profitable microbrewery. When the patio door opens it's great to sit out and get the natural light and a great tasting brew. Also have great music from local artists on a weekly basis.
Quality- All the beers are great and they have a $6 sample flight that gives you a nice tasting of there year-rounds. I usually get there special like an IIPA or a RIS which are usually great change of pace from their delightful regular lineup.
Service- Great service. There is only a handful of servers and if you get on their good-side they will treat you great every time.
Selection- The rotating selection and high demand make getting a pint an adventure every time I go in. With 2 six-pack selections or a growler of any of there 9-12 different taps makes a selection a somewhat daunting task.
No food but that's not an issue for a great microbrewery.
The value is great with growlers for less that $16 and a pint for $3.50 you can't beat it.
I strongly recommend tracking down the brewery if you're in Lafayette, IN because you won't be disappointed.

Had the pleasure of interviewing founder and head brewer Chris Johnson for a class this past semester.
First off, People's is a little tough to identify, as the facility is literally just an industrial cement block building with 2 garage doors on the front, with entrance doors beside them. None the less, it is an interesting setup and different from many other breweries. You walk in to a tasting room that is behind the garage door on the right. Welcoming feel of some vintage video games, tables, and a nice wood bar in the back corner.
On tap is pretty much everything they have available at the time, with a steady rotation of their seasonals mixed in. Two nitro taps, usually Mr. Brown and Moundbuilder IPA, provide a little different twist on those beers. Behind the bar is a window to see a little bit back into the brewing facilities.
They do not serve food here, but allow you to bring whatever you want in to eat with the pretzels they have available. Also, they have lots of board games that you can play while having a few pints. They also host a weekly euchre night. Everyone I talked to there was very nice and well informed. They are plenty willing to talk brewing and beer with you.
I think I nice part about the tasting room is Thursday pint night, where all beers are $2.50 (I think). In addition, lots of brewery swag is available for purchase at very reasonable prices, from shirts, coasters, and glasses to bottle openers.
I highly recommend stopping by, and give them a follow on Twitter or Facebook for weekly specials. If you see a guy with a large beard there, go ahead and give Chris a shout, nice dude.

People's beers may be maddeningly inconsistent, but the taproom is always wonderful!
The brewery itself is located in a weird, sparse area of Lafayette that's like a cross between an industrial park and a retail zone. Like many breweries, it's in a converted warehouse, but unlike many breweries, the people of People's have not tried to excise the warehousiness from their taproom.
This isn't to say that the place seems overly industrial, or that it's uncomfortable. See, the taproom is the nice, comfy part of the warehouse. It's like if someone built a rec room right off of their garage. You can still see and smell the work area, but the relaxation area is homey and cozy.
The bar itself was built with wood scraps donated by local drinkers. It's long and narrow with seating for about 12 people, a small TV, and a free MAME arcade machine.
The decor is woody and mancave-ish. There's lots of posters announcing a local beer events and a wall of Midwestern growlers, but there's nothing edgy or aggressive about the place. Still, it's more harmless than it is bland.
People's ethos is built on friendliness, community, and accessibility ("beer for the people"). They do a damn fine job of reflecting that with their tap room.

Visited on 9/24 before tasting in West Lafayette.
From the outside, People's is a very unassuming. A brick warehouse with the name of the brewery on one door at the top of a small flight of stairs.
Upon entering, the tasting bar is straight ahead at the end of a narrow room. Some high-top tables and chairs are to the left and right, a few flat-screens are hung up high, playing football, etc. The tasting room is somewhat small, but was fortunately not crowded when we visited.
6 or so brews were offered on the day we visited, and one of them was also offered in a nitro version. Moundbuilder, one of their more well-known brews, was unfortunately not available. I tried their pilsner first. I'd say it was middle of the road, coming across as a bit "green". Lagering for a bit longer might improve it. Their brown ale, however, which I tried as a "nitro", was delicious. Deep maltiness, with a touch of mineral, and the nitro definitely contributed to a creamy mouthfeel.
I saw one patron at the bar had ordered a sampler, so this is also an option. I'll definitely be back to try their other offerings down the road. Looking forward to supporting this young Indiana brewery any chance I can get!

People's is right down the street from my apartment and I go there a lot after work for a quick pint. There selection of beers isn't huge, but it is a very small brewery and what they do have I like quite a bit, especially on Wednesdays when growlers are $2 off. The brewery does not have a pub, but the tasting room is big enough for 20 or so people and they are cool with people bringing food in since they don't serve any. Overall, if you are in Lafayette stop by and have a drink, you will probably enjoy it.

Well there is not much to say since I went when it was in its infancy. They had just finished building their tasting room. Its long and narrow with a bar in the back that seats about 6 maybe. They also have a few tables to they could probably fit 20 in there. While I was there they had 6 beers on tap, but it was a diverse 6 beers, ranging from a hoppy IPA to a malty red ale and a light pilsner to a dark porter. They had a small tour that consisted of the bar tender showing you the small brewery and takes about 3 minutes, unless you ask questions. They will fill growlers at very reasonable prices, sadly I didn't get one before I left. Either way I recommend the trek out to the industrial waste land they reside in to experience them. Their beers are good, the bartenders are knowledgeable and nice. I wish it was there longer before I left, because I would have gone more then once.
