Early this month, brewer Todd Ebbinghaus and his wife, Tammy, will celebrate the one-year anniversary of their brewery, Indian Springs Brewing Co. Located in downtown Neosho, Missouri, the taproom building dates back to the 1890s.
The brewery name honors local history, too: It’s named for the once-thriving settlement of nearby Indian Springs, a medical resort town of the same era whose healing waters were said to rival Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
These days, the town of Indian Springs is long gone, but patrons can still find good medicine from the brewery’s 10 taps. This fall, try the South Brown & Down, a chocolatey English malt ale with a toffee-nut finish.
