The Dixon Construction Group is proud to have been the general contractor for the project, which included three parcels of land and takes up three storefronts on Main Street Fortville.

The project included restoring the buildings to their orignal glory and highlighting natural architectural features. There is reclaimed wood and Edison light bulbs throughout, and added French “brasserie” flair with tufted banquettes and chandeliers.

Microbrewery growth nationwide has more than doubled in the last few years, and it doesn’t appear to be letting up anytime soon.
Indiana craft brew lovers just can’t seem to get enough. Overall beer sales may have been down last year, but craft beer sales were up more than 17%. The boom is so large in the state of Indiana that there are state-sanctioned crowdfunding sites that skew towards the craft brewery industry.
From downtown to Irvington to the Northside suburbs, microbreweries are continuing to pop up all over Central Indiana, while more established names such as Sun King are continuing to invest and expand their operations – most recently their newly added tap room and small-batch brewery in Fishers, Indiana. The Brewers Association states that Indiana is far from tapped out. Currently 8 out of every 100 of the beers sold in the state are craft.
With such readily available avenues for raising capital and customer demand so high for unique brews, the sky is the limit for Indiana craft breweries, both growing breweries and start-ups.
Are you an up and coming craft brewer starting to map out concepts for your brewing operation? Or maybe an establish microbrewery strategically planning for future growth? With either scenario, The Dixon Construction Group is your go-to builder and general contractor with expertise in the art of brewpubs, microbreweries and tap rooms. Let our previous experience in brewery and tap room build-outs save you time and money.
We’re well-versed in the specific infrastructure requirements of the microbrewery industry, including the specialized systems required for brewing, fermenting, clarifying, tapping, packaging and barrel storage. As well as the very specific drainage, piping and electrical requirements. We work with our microbrewery clients to develop a detailed master schedule to accommodate for project milestones, major equipment delivery and needed permits. We also think ahead and proactively discuss with our clients their game plan for future expansions.
Indiana is thirsty for unique independent brews, and the Dixon crew is proud to be able to be a part of helping bring to life the structures for an ever growing Indiana industry.

Some of our favorite projects have been the jobs where we were able to work with the client to highlight unique historic features during a building remodel or build-out. At times, preserving historic or period details of a structure can present challenges, but in the end provides cultural interest and historic significance to the building. By preserving historic details of a property there is a retention of history and a certain authenticity and charm that remains with the structure even if the purpose has changed.
Things to consider:
Preserving original craftsmanship details of historically significant structures can be extremely rewarding for all involved. And interestingly, often rehabilitation projects can cost less than new construction. The Dixon Construction Group has the expertise necessary to help clients maintain the period details and historic feel of their existing structure, while addressing safety concerns, updated building codes and adding desired modern conveniences.
