Things have been brewing in downtown Westfield for a while but it literally began to boil earlier this spring when Grand Junction Brewing Co. opened. Co-owners Jon P. Knight of Westfield and Charlie Wood of Fishers renovated 110 S. Union St. from the former Keltie’s restaurant into the city’s first brewery.

“Things are going very well,” Knight said.

The naming of Grand Junction Brewing is a nod to Westfield’s history and future. Knight said the railroad-themed name is derived from the city’s connection point of the Monon and Midland railroads and the rich Quaker history of establishing Westfield.

“We’re ecstatic to get the recognition from the chamber. It provides us with validation that the 16 months of planning that went into this has been a success,” Knight said. “We wanted to be at the forefront of the rebirth and revitalization of downtown Westfield.”

Grand Junction Brewing has seven barrels that hold 31 gallons each or 217 gallons combined. Wood said approximately 1,700 pints can be held in one tank. Knight said the pub offers eight beers on taps and after the five foundations that leaves three guest taps which are rotated amongst local breweries. Grand Junction Brewing also offers growlers for takeout.

As the brewery looks to the future, Knight said it will begin distribution to being served in other bars and restaurants in 30 to 60 days. The public also will be able to purchase 5 gallon and 15.5 gallon kegs of Grand Junction Brewing beer.
