What is Big Lug putting down?

Ten taps of pure drinkability.

Rockstone's mantra is all about local, fresh and down right delicious. We've proudly teamed up with our neighbors, Big Lug Canteen, as the exclusive pizzeria to this local brewery. Our guests have an experience you can not find in Indiana. Big Lug gives beer the respect it deserves. No shortcuts. No gimmicks. To create their distinct flavor of beers, they've purchased all American made equipment, spared no expenses when it came to quality hops and malts, and focused on beer styles that are full flavored, and excite drinkers to take another sip. These are quality brews that pair perfectly with many of Rockstone's menu items including the Meatzorilla, Baked Pollo Parmesan, or the Pale Ale Chorizo Cheese Sauce with breadsticks.

Specializing in downright good brew, with solid menu selections for every palate, Eddie Sahm (managing partner) and Scott Ellis (brewmaster) give their spin on the world of dining, paired with the craftsmanship of freshly made beer, all in one location.

The newly constructed space features two floors of eclectically decorated wall and ceiling designs, two beautiful patio spaces overlooking the Monon Trail, two full bars featuring 8 taps, and liquor exclusively from Journeyman Distillery. Stop by today for lunch, dinner, and drinks!

Two Beards & One Goatee = The Biggest of Big Lugs

The crew that loves what they do. Here are three great examples.

Scott Ellis Big Lug
Scott Ellis

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.

Eddie Sahm Big Lug
Eddie Sahm

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.
