The Bank Beer Company was conceived in the fall of 2008 over beers in the newly remodeled Bank Inn Hunting lodge on Main Street Hendricks. The Bank Hunting Lodge is located on Main Street Hendricks and is the former location of Irene's Cafe and the Original State Bank of Hendricks.
Jason Markkula purchased The Bank in Hendricks in early 2007. The Building constructed in 1900 was in great disrepair and after a complete overhaul contains a bathroom in the original vault and sleeping quarters in the office area and a 15 foot oak bar in the lobby.
The Bank was completed in Sept 2008. Sitting at the bar, Jason was dared by a close friend to start a beer company that would strive to give back to conservation and our heritage. Today Jason continues that quest, to build a company built on the premise that we should give back and leave a legacy bigger than ourselves, a company that devotes its energy to preserving land for future generations.
