Today, Indy Brew Bus owners, Andy and Megan Bulla, announced that the Indy Brew Bus brewery tours will cease tour operations on Dec.4, 2021. Opened in early 2012 by the husband-wife duo, the Indy Brew Bus was Indiana’s first brewery tour company. The business combined three great passions for the Bullas – supporting local businesses, enjoying craft beer, and promoting Indianapolis tourism.
Although the brewery tours are ending, Indy Brew Bus on Tap will remain open and ready to serve local beer and cider, wine and spirits. Pouring from a 1974 mail truck turned beer truck, the fully licensed and insured alcohol catering operations opened in 2019 and can be reserved for festivals, corporate events and private parties.
“We have had the opportunity to host thousands of craft beer enthusiasts over the last decade. The support we’ve experienced since our bus doors opened has been incredibly gratifying. We are grateful to our customers who supported our entrepreneurial spirit and entrusted us with celebrating everything from life’s special moments like birthdays, anniversaries and retirements to a Saturday afternoon cheers with friends.
Since we opened, we have seen the craft brewing industry in Indianapolis grow and thrive, with many of our partners recognized with national and worldwide accolades. We want to thank our brewery partners for welcoming us warmly and allowing us to introduce residents and visitors alike to the city’s many delicious craft beer offerings.
At this time, Indy Brew Bus on Tap is better aligned with where we see the company growing. The COVID-ravaged tourism business has to adapt to survive. This decision was not made lightly. The creation and sustainment of this business was personal to us. We’ve grown our family and careers all while continuing to cultivate a growing and ever-changing tourism business. We look forward to this next chapter of focusing our time and efforts into growing the catering side of the operation.
Cheers everyone, and keep supporting Indy’s craft breweries!”
