- WHAT IS DRINK CULTURE? -
Our mission is to highlight local business owners, thought leaders, and other area personalities who have made the city of Indianapolis what it is today. We want to ‘drink in the culture’ of what Indianapolis offers and share those stories with you, the listeners.
The Goal: To explore the intricacies of the city we call home and share our findings with you.
We believe that drinking socially is one of the things that keeps societies connected. To that end, Drink Culture is also the celebration of the spirit, comradery, and the business of drinking your favorite beverage. Whether you enjoy spirits, wine, beer, coffee, La Croix, or something in-between we want to capture the essence of the social leveler that we call drinking. Drink Culture is a call to action, an invitation to live your life by our motto to "drink deep of the culture that surrounds you" and we invite others to do the same.
We hope that you will join us on our journey to discover the people and places that make our community so extraordinary.

Fabian is father to a Persian cat named Waffles (@therealwafflekitty) self proclaimed beer nerd, amateur photographer, and all around man of mystery.... well maybe not the last part.
