Little Foodies: 101 Beer Kitchen

Founded in Ohio by husband-and-wife duo Thad and Jessica Kittrell, 101 Beer Kitchen reflects the owner’s goal to create a place they could enjoy with their four kids. Together, they created a multi-location franchise that’s welcoming, fresh and exciting. 101 Beer Kitchen has two locations in Central Indiana: Fishers at the Yard and Carmel at the Proscenium. 


Both Indy-area locations offer family-friendly yet trendy and fresh dining environments — a perfect compromise between parents and kids. The kids’ menu is creative and interactive, with checkboxes to personalize their own meal. Each kids’ entrée comes with two sides, a dessert and a drink, and offers several options to choose from, including Parmesan and panko-crusted chicken tenders, six-cheese Mornay sauce and mini rigatoni macaroni and cheese, all beef kosher hotdogs in house made pretzel dough. For brunch, they offer French toast dippers and cheesy scrambled eggs. The food comes on a divided tray, similar to the ones at a school cafeteria. Luckily for kids (and parents), the food on the tray tastes much, much better. 

Grown ups can enjoy craft beer with 20 taps that change with the seasons, and a seasonal cocktail and wine menus. They offer happy hour specials Monday through Friday from 3-6 p.m. The food menu offers the tried-and-true standbys (burgers, wings, chicken sandwich, soft pretzels) as well as new and exciting dishes: butternut squash perogies with brown butter, sage, shallots, parmesan cheese, sherry vinegar and spinach. |
