LIKE DRINKING OLD-TIME BEER IN A MUSEUM !
IN 1837 a brewery was established in this building. Mike Rowe and wife Terri have renovated the property and are brewing an early recipe of beer from this site along with 2 others + root beer
The only bar worth going to (in my opinion) is SOnka's Irish Pub.
It's the best bar in Terre Haute, and the only one i ever went to. Frequented by many people, but especially a large number of Rose-Hulman students, it's relatively small, has a good beer selection (they pour a GREAT Guinness there!), and nice people. There's one pool table as well as some darts. Basically, it's best for the atmosphere.
Fridays from 5-7pm are Free Munchies. If you're lucky, you'll be there on a day that they have their Meatballs as a free munchy.
Dress Code: None.
It is a historical land mark and a microbrew!! Two for the price of one...
M Mogger's Brewery was founded in 1837 and stayed in business (after joining Terre Haute Brewing Company in 1889) until 1953.
Its a comfortable locals place, with some good food and plenty of beers to choose from. Possibly the biggest beer menu in town.!
Dress Code: Completely casual.
There is night life in TH! Besides Sonkas Irish Pub--which is sort of a local "Cheers" just east of downtown. Tthe Verve nightclub has live Blues most weekends and a cool atmosphere -also in downtown. TKs sports bar is more local/sports bar/after work crowd but if you like that its fun-it in the north industrial park. The Tap Room is connected with the Terre Haute Brewing Company. They found the original (early 1900s I think) recipe of Champagne Velvet beer and have added other microbrews to the menu. Cool atmosphere with a lot of historic photos. The Dawg House, just south of downtown has marginal atmosphere, but makes up for it by having really friendly staff-again a mostly local crowd, but not your typical chain.
Dress Code: all casual
