Speedway-based Daredevil Brewing to open second location

Speedway-based Daredevil Brewing Co. plans to open a taproom and restaurant this fall at the Ironworks Hotel Indy on the city’s north side, 2721 E. 86th St.

The new location, which will be called Daredevil Hall, will occupy 4,200 square feet, including a taproom and a family-friendly restaurant, in addition to a 900-square-foot outdoor patio. 

Executive chef of the restaurant will be Neal Brown, whose other ventures include the Japanese-inspired Ukiyo at 4907 N. College Ave.; Pizzology at 13190 Hazel Dell Parkway in Carmel; and the Libertine Liquor Bar at 608 Massachusetts Ave.

“We have worked with Neal for several years as a supplier of craft beer to his different restaurants and we are very excited to get a chance to work with him directly on Daredevil Hall,” Daredevil said in a prepared statement issued Wednesday.

The menu will include “craft beer inspired foods from different regions of the world, including Belgium, England, Germany and North America,” Daredevil said.

Daredevil co-owner Shane Pearson declined to go into specifics about the menu. “We’re not sharing those details at this time,” he told IBJ.

This will be the second location for Daredevil, which was founded in Shelbyville in 2012 by brothers Shane and Michael Pearson and Bill Ballinger. Daredevil relocated to Speedway in 2015.

The Ironworks location will not include a brewery, and Daredevil plans to continue brewing all of its beers in Speedway.

Daredevil is the maker of Lift Off IPA, Vacation Kolsch, Pils German Pilsner, Rip Cord Double IPA and other beers. Its products are available at restaurants and retailers around the state.

The Ironworks Hotel Indy, which includes 120 rooms plus 15,000 square feet of retail space, is a Hendricks Commercial Properties development.

Daredevil will fill the remaining retail space in the hotel portion of the Ironworks at Keystone development. A space previously occupied by B Spot in the apartment part of the Ironworks development remains open. B Spot, a burger concept created by celebrity chef Michael Symon, closed April 30 after less than three years in business.
