Campaign for LGBT equality coming to Indianapolis, June 29th

GET//OUT, a recently-launched social enterprise creating fresh and fun ways to support LGBT equality, kicked off the BLgT USA earlier this summer in Provincetown, MA. The organization is activating people locally to promote LGBT rights this summer – simply by eating a BLgT. Participating chefs across the country are creating classic BLT sandwiches with a twist, with proceeds benefitting partner LGBT community centers all summer long. The BLgT USA team is crossing the US to visit partner restaurants via the branded vehicle to host pop-up experiences in 50 states.

In Indiana, Scotty’s Brewhouse, serves as our restaurant partner, with a portion of the proceeds from their twist on the BLgT benefitting Indiana Youth Group, which serves the state’s LGBTQ youth. On the partnership, Scott Wise, the President/CEO of Scotty’s Brewhouse said,“I live by a motto that I was taught by my parents and that is to respect and love all people equally.  I believe love has no labels and I hope by supporting efforts like the BLGT we will one day live in a world that has equality for all people.”Visit the downtown Indianapolis location of Scotty’s Brewhouse any time before September 22 and see your BLgT make a difference in the lives of LGBTQ youth across the state.

Scotty’s Brew Club at Hillview Country Club to Open in July

FRANKLIN, IN. – June 25, 2015 Scotty’s Brew Club located at Hillview Country Club in Franklin, IN will be opening at the end of July. The menu includes some items featured at the popular Scotty’s Brewhouse restaurants throughout the state of Indiana in addition to steak, fresh seafood and Sunday brunch. Scotty’s Brew Club will also feature an upscale wine list and wine lockers, carry-out growlers and wine on tap. Hillview members will have special perks at the Scotty’s Brew Club.

Scott Wise, President and CEO of a Pots and Pans Production, which operates 3 other concepts with 12 different locations, said he is excited about having one of his restaurants in a country club setting. “It breaks the mold of what traditional restaurants are supposed to do and where to locate. It is thinking outside the box and taking a risk.”


 “This is big news for our club and for Franklin,” said Hillview Country Club partner Pete Grimmer. “We hope this also becomes a catalyst for economic development on the city’s east side.”

Grimmer agreed: “We were looking for an agreement where we would own and operate the country club facilities and golf course and someone else would manage the restaurant.”

With construction underway, the next step will be finding employees to run a successful restaurant. To help speed up this process, Scotty's is holding open interviews for all positions next Monday and Tuesday from 10am - 6pm at the Hillview Country Club located at 1800 East King Street in Franklin as well as July 6-7 from 10am-6pm. No appointments are necessary and business casual attire is encouraged.

"We will be looking for great people to fill all types of positions," said Tracy Morgan, Director of Human Resources. "From cooks, to servers to management positions, we will have opportunities for everyone."

If you are interested in applying for one of these positions or at any Scotty's location, you can start the process by filling out an online application at

"We encourage everyone to get the process started by completing the online application," continued Morgan. "The open interviews will, then, afford the opportunity to meet face to face and move the hiring process along."

With over 1,400 employees, a Pots and Pans Production offers great benefits including health insurance, health club membership reimbursement, companywide special events, and many other programs and incentives.

Scotty's $500K Remodel

By: Scott Olson

The flagship Scotty’s Brewhouse on East 96th Street—the local chain’s first outpost in Indianapolis—will undergo a major renovation this summer that will force the restaurant to close for about a week.


Owner Scott Wise says he’s preparing to plow $500,000 into the location at 3905 E. 96th St. that opened in 2006. Work should begin in the next few weeks—much of it during the overnight hours when the restaurant is closed—and finish in early August.

The restaurant, however, will need to close in mid-July for about a week, Wise said.

“It’s a pretty substantial remodel,” he said. “It’s a scrape and redo.”

Aesthetically, the walls in the center of the restaurant will be removed to open up the space, and the bar will be redone. All televisions and tables will be replaced and a garage door will be added on the side of the building giving patrons easier access to the patio.

Outside, awnings and signage will be replaced.

The aim is to freshen up the space and give it the same look as the newer Noblesville location set to open at the end of July at 146th Street and Hazel Dell Parkway. That's the former La Hacienda space.

An addition to the menu is in the offing, as well. Wise is installing a pizza oven in the kitchen and adding pizzas to the menu. He’ll do the same at the downtown location.

The East 96th Street restaurant often is the top performer in the Scotty’s chain, Wise said.

Also in July, Scotty’s will open at the Hillview Country Club in Franklin. Another will launch by the end of the year, in Punta Gorda, Florida—the first Scotty’s outside of Indiana.

The additions will bring the number of Scotty’s restaurants to 13
