While smaller craft brewers get the headlines these days, the massive Anheuser-Busch brewery in Columbus quietly keeps brewing on.  Business First got a rare glimpse inside the Anheuser-Busch brewery (public tours haven’t been available since 1999) and produced this slideshow:

Craft brewer revamping its look to go with new name, signs with distributor



​Kindred Beer now really will be Kindred Beer. The year-old Gahanna microbrewer has tapped new leadership, is offering food to its tasting room and barrel house visitors and is expanding to a second taproom with plans in Clintonville. But also as part of its makeover, the brewer has renamed itself — formerly it was Kindred Artisan Ales — and rebranded its beers.

Combustion Brewery hopes to be gathering spot for all with large, family-friendly space



Combustion is more than just a name to Keith Jackson.

The owner of the soon-to-open Combustion Brewery & Taproom picked that moniker because the creation of fire evokes feelings of warmth and community — think of barbecues and bonfires. It’s that sense he hopes to bring to Pickerington when his brewery opens April 15.

oh no i had no idea they stopped the tours, what a shame. when i first moved to columbus, i lived in the continent briefly. before going out we used to walk over to the brewery, run through the tour trail ignoring it all, which was a walk through type tour you could do at your own pace, and get to the beer tasting room at the end. they gave you one or two drafts for free. believe it or not there was always a fresh dark bud that was pretty good, at least there at the brewery. i dont think i ever saw it elsewhere. come to think of it, i can see why they gave up the tours! ha.

BrewDog's first Ohio beers expected out by summer

It may have taken longer than expected, but the first of BrewDog’s Ohio-brewed beers will be released by summer.  The Scotland-based craft brewery, which calls Canal Winchester its U.S. home, has the first batches of Punk IPA in its tanks.  It has been importing its beer from the Scotland mothership so far.
( . . .)
The company updated fans on its progress via its blog - https://www.brewdog.com/usa/lowdown/blog/brewdog-usa-is-a-go.  The blog also noted that the keg line is completed and the canning line, capable of 32,500 cans an hour, will be up and running in the next few weeks.

A new brewery is coming to Newark and it'll have food trucks, lots of space for outdoor activities and a huge patio



Licking County is developing into quite the brewing hub.

Add DankHouse Brewing Co. to the “coming soon” list of local breweries. It’s yet another setting up shop in the county at 161 Forry St. in Newark. Pending license approvals, it should be open by July or August.

Loose Rail Brewing opening this weekend in downtown Canal Winchester



Loose Rail Brewing Co. is prepared to toot its own horn.

Though plenty proud of the beers it will be serving when it opens at 37 Waterloo St. in Canal Winchester May 5, this horn tooting will be quite literal. The brewery and taproom boasts a train whistle for use at last call or after a good tip.

Grove City's new craft brewer expands production capacity, hours and unveils full gastropub menu



Grove City Brewing Co. is done being quiet.

The craft brewery at 3946 Broadway in the suburb from which it takes its name has been open since late 2016, hosting events and maintaining some soft opening hours, but with the expansion of hours, the arrival of Columbus Craft Beer Week next week and an official grand opening party set for May 30, the 5,700-square-foot operation’s owners are ready to be more public.

1487 Brewery starting to land accounts, ready to start selling beer in June



The launch of 1487 Brewery isn’t going according to the original plan but, being a startup, that's par for the course.

Founder and CEO Ben King spoke about the ups and downs of developing and starting his Licking County craft brewery Friday at Columbus Startup Week. When I spoke with King last December about his motivations and plans, the hope was to have a beer garden opened in the Columbus area later this year to accompany the Alexandria pilot brewery (which also happens to be his house).

Anheuser-Busch investing millions in Columbus improvements



Columbus operations will benefit from Anheuser-Busch’s $2 billion in U.S. investments.

The Belgium-based company Monday announced an array of new projects and upgrades to its U.S. facilities, which for Columbus means $7 million in upgrades at the brewery on the north side plus a new state-of-the-art distribution facility.

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.

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.

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."
