In 1904, the Shryock Hill Brewing Co. began building this brewery at the site of the old waterworks on Oak Street in Indiana.

A license was obtained in 1905 and the name of the brewery became Indian Brewing Co. This lager beer was produced here in 1907 and advertised as a “tonic,” which “tones up the nervous system, restores wasted tissues, nourishes and invigorates both body and brain.”

There were 35 employees with a payroll of $45,000 in 1907. In 1941, the Greiner Baking Co. moved into this building and continued their baking business until the plant closed in November of 1960.
