Big Dawg Brew Haus is now Noble Order Brewing Company, and is coming to a bar near you



By Joel Bozman for Indiana On Tap

Big Dawg Brew Haus in Richmond has been making great beer for the last couple years, but has been doing so in relative obscurity. They have now teamed up with World Class Beer to extend the reach of their beer to much more of Indiana.

In addition to the distribution deal, they are changing their name to Noble Order Brewing Company and are undergoing an entire reinvention of everything from social media to tap handles and logos. The Noble Order name comes from their affinity for Viking culture, evidenced by their Viking festival each year and their “as close as possible to authentic” Viking beer, Freya’s Chosen. Those of you who have been long time fans of Big Dawg will be happy to know that the beers and beer names will remain the same, only the branding has changed.

Here are some of the things you should keep your eye out for from Noble Order:


In addition to the name change, Noble Order will be breaking their beers down into 3 sub-categories to help you easily find other styles you may like. The three sub-categories they have created are based on the three life paths one would have had in the Dark Ages. The sub-categories are Peasant Class (Wheats, Kolsches, Pilsners), Religious Class (Belgians and Vint-Beers [wine and beer combination brews], and Warrior Class (Stouts and Scotch Ales). These classes are represented by the mash paddle, cross, and sword respectively on their new label designs.


Tobias IPA – An apricot IPA which gives a light sweetness to counter balance the hoppiness to create a very memorable IPA.

Thistle Sitter Scotch Ale – My all-time favorite Scotch Ale. Everything you’d hope for in a Scotch Ale, with just a hint of smoke to make it more authentic to the European roots.

White Horse Wheat Ale – This flagship beer will rotate which fruit flavor accompanies it. The initial offering will be a Blood Orange Wheat.


In addition to the flagships and other seasonal rotating beer, they plan to produce three meads. Odin (Honey Still Mead), Fenrir (Blood Orange Mead), and Yggdrasil (Oak aged Mead).
