Two Beards & One Goatee = The Biggest of Big Lugs
The crew that loves what they do. Here are three great examples.
He hates it when we call him the "brewmaster", maybe because that's not his name or just because he is an all-around stand-up fellow that cares more for beer than job titles. Scott is originally from Selma, Indiana, working his way to Big Lug after sharing his talents with Three Wise Men Brewery and Ram Brewery.
You could say he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth but not for the reason you're thinking. Eddie grew up in a restaurateur’s world. Local restaurant genius and father Ed Sahm raised his son to take pride in getting the most out of life by giving the most with approachable and savory meals in a comfortable dining environment. Eddie is truly a people person. Behind every dish that he composes is the creativity to challenge the expectations of what his guests see as typical, in taste and presentation. There is no doubt that the restaurant life courses through his veins.
He knows his way around the kitchen, calls patrons by their names and has built a successful family of restaurants focused on making and serving fresh and local food. Since 1986, Ed Sahm has owned and operated Sahm's Restaurant. A hometown guy, Ed graduated from Cathedral High School and Purdue University’s School of Restaurant & Hotel Management. Family has given Ed the passion and motivation to operate restaurants that patrons love to visit over and over again. It’s a family thing. You’ll see he’s all about Fresh. Local. Family
