WHAT’S ON TAP

As a brand new brewery, we feel we have an obligation to give you our best. We know we love our beers, but we believe that a major part of crafting something special is the enjoyment it brings others.
The German word “Lager“ translates to “warehouse“ because of the cold storage fermentation. Early German settlers coming before Indiana became a territory brewed in forts and outposts combining tradition with local ingredients.
Characterized by floral, fruity, citrus-like, piney American-variety hop character, derived from freshly crushed cones, never pellets. Our IPA is all about hop flavor, aroma and balanced bitterness.
Refreshing light brew with a pale golden color, our Cream Ale is gently hopped to make this an easy-drinking traditional beer. Named after the historic river running through our hometown.
Spéirbhean (spare-van) literally translates as; a woman as beautiful as the whole sky. Kilned male and roasted barley give our Irish Red it’s beautiful color for which it’s named.
We wait for the Hessian fly-free date to plant wheat in Indiana. Unfiltered and light on the tongue, our wheat ale is as liberating as it sounds to fly free.
Rich roasted barley makes this robust and complex beer the perfect compliment to the locally-owned Willow Switch coffee found in the beer. Served on a nitro-tap, you’re sure to enjoy it’s boldness topped off perfectly with a nice, thick head.

ABOUT US

Fenwick Farms Brewing Company is extremely proud to be Rensselaer’s first brewery and we know we share a lot of the same values as the little town that we call home.

We believe in hard work and taking pride in everything we put our name on. We believe in a genuine smile, a firm handshake, and an honest day’s work. We work hard to keep all these values at our core – every day, every beer.

Our goal is to become farm-to-glass as much as possible.  We know we will face consistent obstacles along the way including some we cannot control, such as things like climate and soil composition.  However, as we grow, we’ll strive to be able to show you where everything in your glass came from.

MEET THE OWNERS

Ron Fenwick

Born and raised in Rensselaer, he’s spent a lifetime making a name for him and his family. He puts his best effort into everything and it can easily be seen in his marriage, in his daughters, on his farm, or even in the halls of the local high school. He still holds the single game scoring record for varsity basketball at Rensselaer Central High School! We have no doubt you’ll meet Ron when you come in to see us and also have no doubt you’ll love him just as much as we do. There’s no way we could put a title on what Ron does at the brewery because he’s involved across the board.

Kenny VanHouten

After about a decade in the United States Army, his path crossed with Ron’s youngest daughter, Kayla, who is now his beautiful wife and mother to their daughter, Brinley. Two overseas tours as a Light Infantryman helped reinforce the core values he had instilled as a child and it shows he brings those same traits to Fenwick Farms Brewing Co. A jack-of-all-trades, Kenny’s had his hand in everything as well, from having the first idea of opening the brewery to making the tables in our taproom! He also serves as our brewmaster.

Sam Yacko

After graduating from Purdue Calumet, Sam found his way into insurance and financial services, which is how he met Kenny. We’re still waiting to see how this pans out, but you put those two together and they come up with some grand ideas! Seriously though, Sam’s best trait is his unparalleled work ethic. All we have to do is ask and it gets done, if he hasn’t done it already! Just like Ron and Kenny, Sam has been an integral part of our transformation from a gutted building to a beautiful brewery. He serves as Kenny’s right hand man on brew day and leads many of the other brewery operations.
