Why We Love It: Four Day Ray Brewing takes its name from a railroad worker who made a habit of calling off work one day a week. But don’t be fooled; it’s namesake’s questionable work ethic isn’t part of the brewery’s attitude or part of its menu. With 4,300 square feet to spread their wings, brewmasters Brian Graham and Mitch Ackerman are pushing out everything from ales to ambers to coffee blondes in their 20-tap tasting room. And if you’re looking for eats to pair with your pint, you’ll find them in the adjacent gastropub. Dripping with modern flare including an airy loft overlooking the dining room, the restaurant has large garage doors that welcome Indiana air when it’s warm, and sunshine when you’re drinking winter ales.
