About

On WeddingWire since 2023

Host a wedding event with historical flair at Journeyman Distillery, a large brewing factory, bar, and restaurant located right in the heart of Valparaiso, Indiana. The story of the rustic distillery dates all the way back to the mid-1800s when the world saw a rise in industry and machine manufacturing. Dozens of factories were established in the area, but this particular establishment, home to thousands of production companies, became reputed as "The American Factory Building." More than a century has passed, but the history and heritage of Journeyman Distillery live on through its new owners, who invite couples all across the state to share in its legacy.

Facilities and Capacity

The Journeyman Distillery is a newly-renovated 140,000-square-foot facility for king-size events of up to 1,200 guests. An array of stylish spaces are on offer, too, providing you with endless opportunities as you plan your dream party. The Tower Garden, a gleaming grass lawn that rests under a 130-foot water tower, is ideal for ceremonies beneath the Valparaiso sunshine. Just across the street is a building established in 1862 as Korn and Junker Brewery, the city's only pre-prohibition distillery. Located inside the brewery is the West Room, whose exposed beams and relaxed, warehouse-style brickwork revive the spirit of the industrial times at your reception. For celebratory drinks, look no further than the historic East Room, where guests can sip on custom-crafted cocktails and crisp beers while overlooking panoramic views of the paved courtyard below.

Services Offered

Good times and great drinks are at the heart of Journeyman Distillery, and the team strives for complete customer satisfaction, offering a range of services you and your sweetheart are sure to enjoy. From tables and chairs to china and flatware, the property supplies all the essentials for an unforgettable dinner party. In addition to cocktails and beers, a selection of organic spirits and liquors is available, catering to couples who love their beverages strong and straight from the brewery.
