hydraulic ale works

Sorry, but we are Closed.

Thank you to our faithful staff and loyal customers.


Located along the Riverwalk, in Downtown Elkhart’s River District.

Relax. Eat. Drink. Enjoy.


Because we are so close to the hydraulic canals, we feel a connection with the power of water. The quality of brewing water is extremely important because it is a major part of what beer is. Water is what powers beer, in the same way it powered Elkhart back in the 1800’s. That’s why we treat the water, along with our other ingredients for both our beer and our food, with such respect.

Understanding the brewing process this intimately allows us to extract powerful flavors from the malts we use, all the way to the yeasts and hops. Our mission is to take those flavors and compliment them with a phenomenal food experience.
