Central Ohio will be home to 4 new microbreweries by mid-year
TRENDSPOTTING — BY MELANIE MCINTYRE
MARCH 21, 2012 AT 8:00 AM
Two microbreweries opened in Central Ohio this winter and two more are coming online in the spring− launches that suggest the region has become a hotbed for beer making.
The brewers at the forefront of the trend say it’s no coincidence that these kinds of operations are cropping up in such close succession, that the microbrew scene has been heating up elsewhere for quite awhile and locals are finally getting in on the action.March 21, 2012 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm #487780
Strong Demand is Keeping Area Microbreweries Busy
TRENDSPOTTING — BY MELANIE MCINTYRE
JANUARY 28, 2011
Microbrew production appears to be flourishing in Central Ohio and experts predict only good things for the industry’s future here. One reason for that rosy forecast is simple: There’s no shortage of beer enthusiasts in these parts.
“There is a healthy beer culture beginning to assert itself throughout Columbus and the breweries that are up and running are doing a good job of capturing some of that momentum,” says Collin Castore, co-owner of Bodega and co-owner of The Barrel and Bottle.

The Actual Brewing Company Launching Production, Plans Downtown Brewpub
One evening last week, I found myself driving to a secluded warehouse out near the airport. After finding the right building, I located the properly marked door and let myself inside to find a dimly lit abandoned-looking office space. I was then greeted by two burly looking men with Galifianakis-esque beards.
This is how a lot of horror movies start, which would be a fitting story today seeing as it’s Friday the 13th. But thankfully, everything was smooth sailing once I was led back into the warehouse area of the building and offered a beer. I had safely entered the production facility space of The Actual Brewing Company.

Columbus Brewing Co. is set to double its production, flooding the market with 8,000 gallons – or 1,500 additional cases – of beer each week. Eric Bean, owner and brewmaster of CBC, likes where his business is headed. Over the past year, he’s invested about $300,000 into the Brewery District facility, which includes four new fermenters and a semiautomated packaging machine that allows CBC to turn out 60 cases an hour.

Nice. CBC can do no wrong. I’ve told Eric that I’d much rather drink his beer (or most any other local brew) than Sam Adams or any other ubiquitous micro. Drinking Local should become easier and easier (but I’ll still send money to San Diego every once in a while…).May 23, 2012 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #487786
Dude I can hardly stomach Sam Adams anymore, just a malty, sweet mess.
No comparison to CBC, Barley’s or Elevator, it’s a fun time to be a beer fan in the

Sideswipe Brewing to Launch in Columbus This Summer
Published on May 21, 2013 10:00 am
The rate at which new Columbus microbreweries are launching has slowed in 2013, but don’t consider this launch cycle over just yet. Craig O’Herron is ready to throw his hat into the ring with the announcement of Sideswipe Brewing. Located just southwest of Grandview Heights, Sideswipe will launch later this summer as a production brewery with products available for purchase in nearby craft beer-friendly venues.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Local entrepreneurs are planning another brewery in Ohio City, the Cleveland neighborhood that has remade itself with a heavy emphasis on hops and malts. If Paul Benner and Justin Carson succeed, though, the newest player will be more business incubator than beer joint.
