Pizza to the people! Our made-from-scratch pizza has revolutionized the state of takeout and delivery in Bloomington, establishing fresh and locally prepared pizza as a universal right. Where once there were only corporate chains, there is now a grassroots gastro-uprising that can only be satisfied by hand-tossed crusts, superior sauces, and delectably dippable Breadstix.
Combining coziness with casual elegance, Lennie's offers a welcoming atmosphere perfect for relaxing with family or friends. This local gathering place serves your favorite comfort foods with an artisan twist – from handmade gourmet pizzas and satisfying salads to sandwiches as big as your head. Lennie's also houses the original location of the Bloomington Brewing Company, stop in pub-side and checkout the locally quarried limestone bar and enjoy a pint or a pitcher while the brewers do their thing. Lennie's also offers carry-out growlers of the Bloomington Brewing Company in half-gallons, quarts and pints; all in refillable and reusable glass containers.
Our brewery led the charge for handcrafted ales in Monroe County, becoming the first in the area to brew local beer. Our award-winning ales are unfiltered, unpasteurized, and made to exacting standards one batch at a time. From mainstays like Quarrymen Pale Ale and Ruby Bloom Amber to seasonals like Java Porter (our fall and winter brew), we pride ourselves on carrying on the age old craft of small batch brewing. Our beers are available on draught at Lennie's and other fine establishments in Bloomington and Indianapolis.
If you are planning a truly special event, look no further. Our catering service, provides creative dishes, locally sourced ingredients, and attentive event planning that covers everything you need. We take pride in our progressive approach and our commitment to provide both the freshest food and the freshest ideas in catering. In addition to putting together a fully customized menu for your event, we'll arrange for décor, photography, and anything else required to realize your vision.
All real food starts on the farm. Our purchase of the historic Loesch Farm west of Bloomington is our first step toward creating a true farmstead restaurant and brewery where we will grow and manage our own organic crops as ingredients. Already we are growing hops and heritage breed pigs fed from our food scraps, in addition to turning our organic wastes back into the land where it belongs.
