TOURS + TASTINGS
Journeyman at the American Factory is the newest campus at Campbell and Brown streets in downtown Valparaiso. The meticulous renovation of the old ANCO factory is ongoing, blending the rich history of the location with the vibrant spirit of Journeyman Distillery. Everything about Journeyman Distillery is handcrafted, creating an immersive experience for visitors. This location not only presents a revitalized historic site with food, event spaces, and, of course, drinks, but it also embodies the essence of craftsmanship and attention to detail.
A sister property to its Three Oaks Featherbone Factory, this building is now home to Journeyman’s newest Vendome copper still from Louisville, KY, towering over two stories tall. The impressive still can be observed through the window wall in the courtyard and experienced up close during engaging and informative tours.
DINING AT UNION HALL
Serving all the classic Journeyman spirits such as Last Feather Rye, OCG, Pit-Spitter Cherry Whiskey, Not A King, and the multi-award-winning Corsets, Whips + Whiskey, Union Hall stands as an inspired showcase of Midwest staples. Beyond distilling, Journeyman has curated a family- friendly restaurant that offers modern American fare for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch. The culinary journey at Union Hall is a perfect complement to the diverse and exceptional spirits crafted on-site.
In addition to the distillery and restaurant, Journeyman’s brewery, Sea of Monsters, unfurls its own captivating story. Inspired by nautical legends and the courage to face fears of the unknown, the brewery promises bold house brews and an invitation to partake in storytelling, reminiscent of those who once explored uncharted waters.
