My first stop on my press trip to Hamilton County Indiana was the Four Day Ray restaurant and brewery. I met up with Whitney Riggs of Visit Hamilton County, then headed into the wonderfully bright restaurant. My mom and I loved the huge windows that during the summer can open up, the light upbeat atmosphere sets you up to be in a good mood before ever ordering anything off the menu.
Much to my joy, we met up and dined with Sara Broers and Lisa Trudell, the founders of the Midwest Travel Bloggers. This was my first time meeting Lisa even though we have corresponded before. The hard part of this meal was deciding just what to order, there were many great choices to choose from.
Looking over the menu, it was a day to split and share. Mom and I split a delectable crab cake and the special, the pulled pork nachos. We had to have dessert and took our waiters advice and ordered the AMAZING S’mores Cookie Skillet Sunday. I must say, “What’s not to love?”
The website brings the fun of this great stop into play. I love the about section! “We dare to be great in industry and revelry alike, crafting only the best in our full-scale distribution brewery. We’ll never water down our beers or sacrifice flavor for fashion, and we hold every dish from our scratch kitchen to the same high standard. Our name recalls our Nickel Plate District heritage, drawn from the nickname for a railroad employee who called off work one day a week. Like those laborers of yesteryear, we strive mightily that we may celebrate heartily. They made Fishers a place to live. We’ll make Fishers a place to love—putting in the work to push our city forward and knocking back a pint to celebrate a job well done. Earn it. Enjoy it. Cheers to the livelong day.”
This was a wonderful place to dine or try a brew. Since it was lunch and I was driving I can’t comment on the brewery aspect, but if the drink is as good as the food, I’m sure it is a homerun!
