about us

Family owned and operated

Dan and Lani Valas started Great Crescent Brewery in November 2008 in a small storefront on 2nd Street in Aurora, IN. Since these humble beginnings they have expanded into a historic building built in 1843 which served as the warehouse for the Thomas and JW Gaff Distillery. 

Great Crescent Brewery belongs to Indiana Artisan and Indiana Grown -

Great Crescent Brewery is located on a sweeping curve of the Ohio River in historic Aurora, IN. Our brewery is rooted in a area founded by folks of a pioneering spirit, who forged new lives in the rich wilderness. We promise to embrace the best of those qualities in our deeds and in our hand-crafted beers, which will always be authentic, down-to-earth and full of life.

Hand-Crafted Beer in small batches created with the highest quality malt and hops.
