Autumn is nearly here and Indiana Beverage is getting ready with a lineup of amazing beverages to follow suit. The Lifer crew had the chance to sample some of these fall-focused flavors and had a blast getting into the spirit.

As anyone who has dined there knows, Strawberry Fields Pancake House has an instant-classic feeling. The restaurant caters to those who crave home-cooked simplicity with a dose of the unexpected.

The hospitality and care that goes into cooking, serving, and running the diner are what truly set Strawberry Fields apart. We took a moment to speak with Harry Les, Owner and Manager of Strawberry Fields Pancake House, so that patrons could get to know the man behind the counter.
