established in 1996 to serve our communities

our story

In 1996, the very first Scotty's Brewhouse location opened for business by our founder, Scott "Scotty" Wise, in the town of Muncie Indiana right in the heart of Ball State University.

Over the next ten years, we expanded to nearby universities in Indiana such as Indiana University in Bloomington and Purdue University in West Lafayette.

By 2006, we opened our first Indianapolis location on the northside at 96th Street and eventually Downtown Indy. Since then we've spread to towns in Illinois, Ohio, Florida, Texas, and Missouri.

2011 marked the year we opened our own brewery, Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Co. in Broad Ripple allowing us to make our own beer recipes for our restaurants.

In 2016, Scotty's Brewhouse was acquired by Due North Holdings, with plans of expanding the craft beer sports bar to all parts of the country.

what we stand for


Our food is really important to us. Our fresh, signature ground chuck that we use in every burger is at no time frozen. Many of our sauces and dressings are proprietary recipes and house-made.


Local and regional craft beer is in our DNA. We want to have enough taps to provide a great variety and ensure we serve fresh beer. We believe in a good, classic cocktail, sometimes with a twist. When in Indiana, try our beer from Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Co.!


We have a lot of TVs and we intend to show ALL the BIG games from every sport! We love our local teams and usually turn up the sound and cheer a little louder for them. We Love Game Days!!!


We are fans of good, up-tempo music from a diverse playlist. We believe having good music sets the tone for a fun and energetic experience. We tend to play it a little louder; so go ahead, sing along!


We believe that having you in our Brewhouse as our guest and serving you is an honor! We want to exceed your expectations and always take the extra step. If your experience doesn't meet your expectations, please let us know right away so we can make it right.


Our Brewhouse is your Brewhouse. At Scotty's Brewhouse, our goal is to build and foster meaningful connections to give back and strengthen our communities. See how here give back.

giving back

Dine and Donate Nights
We partner with local schools, community organizations and charitable groups for Dine and Donate Events at our locations. When guests come to our restaurant on a date selected and mention their organization, we track and donate a percentage of the sales (excluding any sales from food and drink specials) from the group you bring in, back to you – the more people you can bring in support of your fundraiser, the higher the sales and the greater the donation.
