Muncie, IN—The Fickle Peach was established in 2005 as an endeavor between two friends. My friend Brion Fickle and I always said we would open a bar together, so when the opportunity to open in the Francis T. Root building presented itself, we jumped.
Initially, we established our mission statement as: Passionately Dedicated to Great Beer.
Fourteen years later, our mission is still the same.
The Fickle Peach focuses on quality local beer from the Midwest, but also rotates beers from many breweries from around the United States. We are constantly rotating in new beer on twelve of our twenty-six lines. Muncie is becoming a craft beer Mecca, and staying relevant with new breweries, new styles, and variants of beer is a challenge we gladly accept. “Variety is the spice of life,” they say, and we believe that holds true with beer.
The atmosphere in the Fickle Peach is set in an old bank, with the marble floor, and tin ceiling— original to the bank. The money vault and records vault have been converted into coolers for bottle and keg beer. The deep red walls make you feel like you are in a giant living room.
Our staff is well trained in beer styles and breweries, and they will always assist you in finding you a beer you will enjoy.
Weekly Events at the Fickle Peach
Throughout the week we host multiple fun events at the pub.
Monday is Open Mic Night.
Tuesday features the longest running trivia game in Muncie.
Tuesday’s and Thursday’s are tap-take-over nights, where a brewery is highlighted to be on tap with multiple lines. On Friday, we host local musicians on our outdoor patio.
To be honest, our food selection is a cruel joke when compared to our beer options, but we will always point you to one of our great downtown neighbors, where you can bring in food from those establishments inside our bar.
The Fickle Peach offers a relaxing experience, and we offer superb beer at quality prices, a great local crowd who are friendly and engaging, with an exceptional staff to make sure your visit won’t be your last!
