SBBW is a family-owned and operated small-batch brewery located in the heart of downtown South Bend. 

At South Bend Brew Werks, we believe brewpubs are communal spaces where one should be able to do far more than grab a drink or a bite to eat. 

You'll find tasteful beers that offer both spot-on production of various styles as well as inventive brews that invite you to experiment. 

A refreshing emphasis on community that goes beyond words.  We donate $.50 of every pint sold at the pub to one of several local community partners.  

Steve and Michele Lowe are lifelong South Bend residents and big fans of the regrowth of our downtown.

Before operating SBBW,  Steve was a national sales manager, local sportswriter, and fiction writer. Michele worked for The Music Village.

Along with their two sons, Alex and Isaac, Steve and Michele are committed to building a stronger community, one brew at a time.
