When two friends passionate about beer and a brewer teamed up to open a brewery, they were not yet aware of the impact they would have on LaGrange and the beer industry. In search of the perfect space, the founders of Wild Leap began scouting buildings in LaGrange with the necessary assets to act as both a brewery, distillery and event space. It didn’t take long before the two stumbled upon the old Westbrook Service & Tire Co.—a former tire service station housed an historic art-deco building with expansive square footage both inside and out. Working with locals and pivotal community leaders, the Wild Leap founders restored the 59-year-old building in a wild leap of faith. They preserved the space’s charm, character and history, which later would earn Wild Leap an Award for Excellence in Rehabilitation. Once the venue was ready to serve guests from all over, Wild Leap was born.
Along with being the first brewery in LaGrange, Wild Leap offers a tasting room, pet-friendly outdoor courtyard, brewhouse and fun activities for all. As a family-friendly establishment, the brewery provides various activities for children, such as cornhole, board games and more. Known for its creative and easy-drinking craft beers, cocktails and handcrafted Vodka, Wild Leap is widely recognized for its events! From live music, themed parties, food festivals and more, everyone is sure to enjoy a fun-filled night of tasty beverages and music.
