With a nod of respect to the history of Fountain Square and a tip of the hat to the completion of the Cultural Trail leading to and ending in Fountain Square, we introduce the "End of the Line" Public House.
The Virginia Avenue corridor began to emerge as the South sides commercial center in the 1860s when the Citizen's Street Railway Company laid tracks down Virginia Avenue and located a turnaround in 1864; the neighborhood began to be known as 'the End' by local residents. Nearly 150 years later, these original streetcar tracks were unearthed in the process of construction of the Cultural Trail on Virginia Avenue in 2011.
Inspired by this bit of history, the "End of the Line" Public House opened in 2011 as a friendly local watering hole for residents of and visitors to historic Fountain Square.
In keeping with the foundation of a public house, the End of the Line has available fifteen taps of beer, most all local Indiana brews, along with a menu of simple yet hearty fare. Starting close to home with the Fountain Square Brewing Co., Sun King Brewery, Flat 12 Bierwerks, Triton Brewing Company, Upland Brewing and New Albanian Brewing Co, just to name a few...'the End' offers a wide variety to satisfy the craft beer drinker in you.
With a pub style menu built around sandwiches and pizzas, both vegetarians and meat eaters alike will have many options to choose from, including the popular Beer & Bison Burger, the Big Jesse, loaded with thin sliced beef brisket, a Gooey Spinach Melt or Four Mushroom Grilled Cheese. For pizza lovers, choose between the Cajun, Italian, Thai or a simple five cheese pizza plus many more delicious options. Not to be overlooked, fresh Baked Pretzel Sticks with Beer Cheese Sauce, Seared Ahi Tuna or a side of White Cheddar Mac & Cheese piping hot with a crunchy breadcrumb topping, so many flavors to pair with so many beers.
