GrinOn Industries and Barto's Catering & Concessions have been working together to bring faster beer service to the Indiana State Fair for the first time in nearly seven decades.

Attendees are able to enjoy a beer at the Indiana State Fair this year for the first time in nearly seven decades. Assisting in laying the groundwork for faster beer service are local companies GrinOn Industries and Barto’s Catering & Concessions.

Indianapolis-based GrinOn Industries offers a unique draft beer system called Bottoms Up that fills cups from the bottom in order to increase keg yield and reduce transaction times. Through a partnership with Barto’s Catering & Concessions, all full-sized beers at the Indiana State Fair are filled with Bottoms Up dispensers.

GrinOn Industries CEO, Josh Springer, is excited to be one of the local companies represented at the fair. “We love having happy customers expand their use of our product,” says Springer. “As a bonus, this event is accompanied by genuine hometown pride.”

John Barto of Barto’s Catering & Concessions, is pleased to continue a successful relationship with GrinOn Industries at the Indiana State Fair. “I would like to express my overwhelming satisfaction with the Bottoms Up Beer Dispensing System. We have been using Bottoms Up for over 4 years and have seen increases in productivity and product yield over any other draft system that we have ever used.”

Bottoms Up dispensers can be found in the Indiana State Fair’s first-ever beer garden, located inside the Grand Hall, across from the Coliseum. The taps are open every day starting at 1 p.m. and close at 8 p.m.
