Brew Brothers Microbrewery Opening Soon at Scioto Downs
Scioto Downs Racino will soon be welcoming a new brewpub.
Hailing from the west (more specifically, Reno), the first Brew Brothers opened in 1995. The Columbus microbrewery will be Eldorado Resorts’ second take on the successful concept. The $5.9 million project has been in the works for months, and is finally opening on the west end of Scioto Downs on Monday, October 26.
The laid-back brewery will seat 155 inside, with an additional 88 seats on the adjoining patio. The open kitchen will feature a wood-fired pizza oven and meat smoker. The menu is a variety of classic pub fare: pizza, sandwiches, broiled burgers, salads, wings and nachos. Boozy milkshakes, including a Guinness double chocolate shake, will also be available. Lunch and dinner will be served daily.
The room includes a fully equipped stage that overlooks the dining room. The entertainment stage will host a variety of local acts, including musicians and comedians. Brew Brothers plans on hosting a variety of theme nights, like karaoke, college night, and girls night out.
The 44-foot bar seats 23, overlooking the glass windows of the microbrewery that house ten stainless steel brewing vessels. Football games will be played on three 70-inch monitors around the bar. Brew Brothers will be producing six varieties of their own beer.
“We’re looking to cover a wide range of styles, what a beer drinker would want when they come in,” said head brewer Ryan Torres, who previously worked at Barley’s Brewing.
They’ll be brewing a kolsch and an amber ale, both popular in Nevada, along with a variety of Columbus-specific beers. Styles to expect include a session IPA, pale ale, brown coffee porter, stout, and Don’s Root Brew, a creamy alcoholic root beer. Four local and regional Ohio beers will also be on tap, rotating monthly.
Sadly, Brew Brothers won’t be serving their own beer when they open on Monday — they’re still waiting on city permits. But once approval comes their way, they’ll be pouring beer to the public within three weeks.
Brew Brothers will open at 11 a.m. on Monday, October 26, at 6000 S. High Street.
