Phases by Fazle
For those of you who don’t know, Blacktoberfest’s motto is: “Black Joy. Unfiltered.” In fact, the Adinkra symbol at the top of the Blacktoberfest seal is Gye W’ani or “rich living”. It translates to “enjoy yourself, joy of living, happiness and laughter.” That’s what Blacktoberfest is all about. “Black Joy. Unfiltered. Punctuated by the support of Black commerce.”
Interestingly enough, Phases by Fazle encourages you to “Live Life Thru Phases” & enjoy a special curated elixir that has been premium distilled & infused with fresh fruit.
What better way to enjoy all the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Black Excellence coming your way than to wash it down with a swig of Phases, after all; “…it’s just juice”.
Phases by Fazle is the official elixer of Blacktoberfest!
18th Street Brewery
18th Street Brewery was founded as a home brewery by Drew Fox in 2010. After years of hands-on learning and exploration, 18th Street Brewery became official with the release of SINISTER DIPA in 2013. Shortly after the SINISTER release, we opened a 3,200 square foot brewpub in an old dry cleaner’s building in Gary, IN. Quickly outgrowing that space, we purchased a 32,000 square foot warehouse in Hammond, IN. Our Hammond location now houses our production, packaging, barrel program, a taproom and a full service kitchen. Our original Gary, IN now houses a small 10-barrel open fermentation system, as well as a taproom, craft cocktail bar and kitchen.
We are currently the second largest brewery in Northwest Indiana. Our beers range from saisons to double India Pale Ales to double milk stouts to pilsners and lagers. 18th Street is comprised of hard working, motivated individuals who strive to be the best. We love our jobs. We love our beer. We live and love what we do.
