You won’t go thirsty looking for a tasty handcrafted brew and cocktails in Elkhart County. Pull up a stool at these craft breweries and eateries along the Heritage Trail.

Goshen Brewing Co.


A flight of six beers in glasses marked "Co." sit on a bar in front of a row of white taps

The tap list never disappoints here. The kitchen turns out an amazing fusion of Southern smoked fare with a hint of Asian flavors. Wash it down while enjoying a view of the brewhouse, or watch life pass by on the busy Millrace Canal Trail just steps from the doors. (Bonus: You can bring the whole family here!)

Fruit Hills Winery & Orchard.


Fruit Hills Winery

The rustic tasting room overlooks acres of orchards in the historic Bristol Fruit Hills. Grape and fruit wines are produced on-site.

Tasting room is open year-round; outdoor deck and entertainment seasonally.


Iechyd Da Brewing Co.


Five beers in glasses with a dragon logo sit on a wooden board on a bar top with out-of-focus taps in the background

Yeah, we sometimes trip on the name too. It’s YACKY-dah - and comes from the owners’ Welsh heritage. But you’ll want to stay for the stunning variety of beer from the taps as well as the mouth-watering pizzas and sandwiches.

Wedgewood Brewing

Rub shoulders with a new friend at this cozy microbrew. In the summer, you might meet someone who just got off their bike from the nearby Pumpkinvine Nature Trail.

The Chubby Trout

Not many places where you feast on smoked meats and sushi, but this is the place. Pair your plate with owner Cam Snyder’s house brews, Fat Cam, or an impressive selection of regional craft brews. Delish!

Brass Elk Brewing



You can’t beat the views from the patio at Brass Elk Brewing right along the Elkhart River in downtown Elkhart, and it’s even harder to beat when you pair that with its selection of guest taps and featured Ash & Elm Ciders and eclectic menu.

From the extensive and excellent menu to the funky vibe throughout, this new craft brewery and distillery is a full sensory experience. The name draws from an Amish word for “relax,” something that’s easy to do here.
