It was a South Bend staple during the first half of the 20th century. Thursday the newly revived Drewrys Brewing Company took one step closer to making its return to area bars and restaurants.
Once a popular brand here and throughout the Great Lakes region, Drewrys announced its return in January at the South Bend Brewfest.
Since then, hundreds of local fans have followed its progress on Facebook. Thursday we learned that Indiana beverage has signed on to be its distributor.
Drewrys will start rolling bottles off the line again later this year. The new Drewrys will be a quality premium lager with a clean taste, which pays tribute to the original recipe.
