Local distillers lauded for spirits excellence

It isn’t just Central Ohio’s most prominent distillers picking up spirits awards these days.

Two of the area’s smaller brands can clear some space on their shelves, too.

New owner of Zauber Brewing space switching to new brand next month

Here’s something new for the Central Ohio craft beer scene — an acquisition.

Scott Talmage and a group of investors bought the equipment and lease of Zauber Brewing Co. at 905 W. Fifth Ave. for an undisclosed sum and will rebrand as a new brewery possibly as soon as next month in that space near Grandview Heights.

More below:
http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2017/06/06/new-owner-of-zauber-brewing-space-switching-to-new.html

Didn't catch this.  Kind of disappointing - Zauber was one of my favorite local breweries (probably because I'm partial to Belgian beers).  Will be interested to see what happens there.

Business First had an extensive listing of craft brewers in Columbus and Central Ohio.  Not sure if non-subscribers can view this entire listing in the first link below, but here it is, along with an additional article about the making of that list:

Cross-posted from the Columbus Bars thread:


Below is a Business First article link from last year about how the latest wave of craft brewers are sparking the reuse of industrial and retail spaces.  It looks at how this trend has been good for the real estate market in general and some neighborhoods in particular.  These smaller craft brewers have been turning long-dormant industrial spaces and past-their-prime retail sites into active destinations for consumers and for other businesses that want to be nearby to this activity.

Three locations were mentioned:
  • Land-Grant Brewing in Franklinton that converted the former Capital Lift & Manufacturing Co. elevator and conveyor factory into its brewery in 2014.
  • Lineage Brewing in Clintonville that converted a former car wash building along High Street into its brewpub in 2015.
  • Seventh Son Brewing in Italian Village that converted a former automotive repair shop along Fourth Street in 2013.

(I know it's nearly a year old, but I just came across it.  Plus, its just so on-the-mark for a development website like UO.)

Breweries sparking reuse of industrial, retail spaces long past prime:

Land-Grant Brewery To Create Collaborative Beers For Columbus Crew SC Fans

Land Grant Brewery out of Franklinton is teaming up to brew some special beers for Columbus Crew SC matches with other, die-hard soccer fans at breweries across the country.

A little more on the distribution of BrewDog beer from that article:

"The U.S. arm of Scotland's BrewDog began producing and distributing its own beer this summer, which already is available in Cleveland and Cincinnati, and it expects to add more states (Kentucky, Indiana, New York and New Jersey) and another country (Canada) by the end of the year."

New Distillery Will Open in Grandview Next Year

With the recent change in laws allowing distilleries to open tasting rooms and restaurants, brace yourself for the increasing number you’ll likely see in the next few years. High Bank Distillery, coming to Grandview in 2018, is one of them.

Co-owners Jordan Helman (Zest co-owner) and Adam Hines knew they wanted to start something a little over two years ago, and back then, the concept they had in mind was a craft brewery.

City’s First All-Sour Brewery and Taproom Now Open


As local craft breweries multiply, some may think the market is becoming oversaturated. But, for Josh Martinez of Pretentious Barrel House, it’s just getting started. Martinez and partial partner Luis Gutierrez opened the brewery earlier this month, introducing the first all-sour beer production facility and taproom to the area.

Pretentious Barrel House offering sour beers from its east-side taproom

While craft breweries continue to open across Central Ohio, the newest addition to the local scene can claim it’s doing something truly different.

Pretentious Barrel House is producing only sour beers. No IPAs, no lagers, no pumpkin seasonals. Just sours. It opened this month at 745 Taylor Ave. in Columbus.

New brewery features farmland, pigs along with its beer



If you fancy a small trip, Wooly Pig Farm Brewery is ready to serve you.

The newest Ohio craft brewery now is open out on a 90-acre spread in Coshocton County.

I spoke with owner and brewer Kevin Ely this summer about his journey from the Rocky Mountains to Fresno in rural Ohio.

Columbus Brewing can keep name, restaurant will change its moniker, brewery’s attorney says
By JD Malone, The Columbus Dispatch
Posted: December 27, 2017 at 4:14 PM


After two years of legal bickering and 20 years of questions, there now is just one Columbus Brewing Co.  The craft brewery, owned by Beth and Eric Bean, retains the moniker, while the Columbus Brewing Co. Restaurant, owned by Doug Griggs and Mike Campbell, will be looking for a new handle.

The brewery and restaurant agreed to an out-of-court settlement last month, the details of which are not public.  The restaurant will change its name sometime in 2018 and can no longer use the shortened CBC brand, according to the brewery’s attorney. ... The two businesses have always been separate, but that was never obvious.

District Brewing, the brewery’s legal name, formed in 1988 and held the trademark for the Columbus Brewing Co. brand since 1989.  In 1997, then-owner Jeff Edwards invited Cameron Mitchell to add a restaurant onto the front of the Short Street brewery.  Edwards stipulated that the restaurant would be called Columbus Brewing Co. Restaurant.

The two have been confused ever since. ... Eric Bean bought into the brewery in 2006 and Mitchell sold the restaurant to Griggs and Campbell in 2007.  The issue of who would use the Columbus Brewing Co. name and how it would be used was never addressed until this out-of-court settlement.

Business First posted a video interview with the co-founder of Seventh Son Brewing Co. - an Italian Village craft brewery that is in the midst of a pair of expansions:  https://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2017/12/22/news-brews-seventh-son-co-founder-talks-brewing.html

-- The first expansion for Seventh Son Brewing is at its existing 1101 N. Fourth Street bar and brewery, where a large new addition will greatly increase its production capacity and allow it to reach other parts of the state.  (An Oct. 2017 construction pic of this addition was posted over at https://www.urbanohio.com/forum/index.php/topic,5953.msg881005.html#msg881005 in the Italian Village projects thread.)

-- The second expansion for Seventh Son Brewing would establish a barrel-aging space and second bar in the Brewery District-German Village area at 716 S. High Street.

Beer news: Anniversary parties, spicy brews and a new arrival in the market

The beer calendar is pretty full in the coming weeks.

First up is Platform Beer Co., which is marking one year in downtown Columbus with an anniversary party at its 408 N. 6th St. brewery and tasting room. Festivities start bright and early at 10 a.m.

The first 150 visitors will get a commemorative glass. Never Swim Alone, a barrel-aged Berliner with raspberry and cocoa nibs, will be the special can release for the day. There will be plenty of one-offs, infusions and rarities on tap, too, including Cherry Donut Pie. There will be food specials throughout the day.

Reviving Hoster Brewing: A deal with Actual Brewing makes sure the Gold Top brand continues its long history



The historic Hoster beer brand with its signature Gold Top brew has lived a nomadic existence since its namesake brewpub turned off the lights in 2001. The owners of the 182-year-old brand and the recipe for the Dortmunder-style lager have lived off contract-brewing deals that put kegs of the beer out to the masses sporadically over the years, while also trying to raise funds for a branded brewpub to call a home of its own. Now, for the first time since that restaurant and bar shut down, Hoster expects to have a regular flow of beer on the market.
