The former Triple S Brewing has a new owner, name and opening date. Wayne “Woody” Briggs and wife Kellee co-own Brass Brewing Co., which they plan to soft-open on Thursday, March 15, the inauspicious Ides of March, with a grand opening the following day.

Briggs has been a homebrewer for five years, and brewers Kevin Glaspie and Brian Faulkner have a combined 21 years as homebrewers. (And, full disclosure, Indy IT director Ryan Hannigan of Focus on the Beer was involved with Brass’ Kickstarter campaign and website design.) It’s their first time as pros, but Faulkner and Briggs have been training at Aurora’s Launch Pad Brewery for one and two years, respectively. Glaspie’s also been working with JAKs Brewing Company brewer Andre Blyth.

The brewery’s been in the works for two years — Briggs has been looking for a place to lease since March 2016.

“We went through probably 13 different spots,” he says.

Briggs says Brass will bear no resemblance to Triple S. The bar, for one, will be immediately visible on entering the building, and they’re adding garage doors along the side. It’ll also be repainted in grays, blues and dark browns. Briggs is also adding two TVs and a 110-inch projector.

For beers, they’ll have 12 taps, and Briggs plans to offer six beers at opening: a kölsch, a pilsner, a stout, an IPA, and an amber ale on tap, plus a firkin of Irish red ale. Although he’s a big fan of IPAs, he plans to leave Glaspie and Faulkner free to stay atop trends and meet customer demands.
