    Staas Brewing Opens in Downtown Delaware
    Published on August 12, 2013 8:00 am
    By: Ayana Wilson

    Staas Brewing joins an impressive lineup of Downtown hot spots, including Barley’s Hopseters, Vito’s, and 1808 American Bistro. In addition, it’s near The Strand movie theater and Winter Street Inn, so plan a trip to Delaware today. From all signs, this “little town that could” finally is.

    Haven’t seen this mentioned elsewhere, looks like it is still preliminary but an exciting development for the area regardless,

    1. 2515 Summit Street – This was a preliminary meeting to discuss a new boutique brewery at an existing commercial property at the SW corner of Hudson and Summit Streets. The applicant is the owner, Jerry Auger. The existing storefront space was previously a sandwich shop that was carryout only – no dine in.

    The applicant presented their project to the committee. The intent is to develop a boutique ‘nanobrewery’ on this corner site that will both produce beers for sale and also offer a small dining/bar area for customers to stay and experience the beer menu . The owners discussed producing hi-end beers – 3, 31 gal. barrels per batch. They would like to open this fall. There are two (2) parcels involved. The parcel with the existing building (painted mural on north façade) is to be utilized for the ‘nanobrewery’; the parcel that is the vacant lot to the north is intended for ‘on-site’ parking.

    The owners discussed about the future possibility of applying for a change of use for the property so that the owners may produce beers for distribution and resale. This would require a change of use from a C4 (commercial) to an M (manufacturing). The committee felt that this might not be acceptable to the neighbors and compatible with the existing mix of residential and small commercial. The committee suggested that the if the business grows to an extent that manufacturing is desired, another site might be looked at elsewhere in the city that has the correct zoning to allow manufacturing.

    In the meantime, the committee suggested that the owners work on a preliminary building and site plan to take to the city zoning staff to determine the exact requirements for the site are in terms of use, occupancy, parking, signage, outdoor sidewalk dining, etc.

    Columbus loves a craft brewery. The hot-spots have been popping up across the city. What hasn’t been popping up is craft brews in cans.

    Does anyone know if any local breweries other than Elevator and CBC are bottling their beer? I’ve heard from some of the new upstarts that it’s a part of the eventual plan, but as far as I’m aware, pretty much everyone just does kegs and growlers only right now.

    Any bottles out there?

    Rockmill bottles all of their offerings (which are delicious). Neil House bottled their cider, but I believe they went dormant a year or so back. That’s it, from what I know…unless you count Anheuser Busch ;-)

    Nanobrewery to open in Columbus this fall; support sought on Kickstarter

    COLUMBUS — A nanobrewery, tasting room and homebrew class provider plans to open this fall in central Ohio.

    Sideswipe Brewing is a labor of love for Craig O’Herron, the brewery owner, operator and longtime homebrewer. O’Herron has filled pages and pages of notebooks with beer recipes, brewing techniques and tasting notes over the years in his relentless pursuit to create the highest-quality craft beer. Now, with the support of friends and family, he is close to realizing his dream: opening a brewery and sharing his beer with

    “Brewing has been a passion for mine for nearly a decade, so I’m thrilled to be launching this nanobrewery,” said O’Herron, a Worthington resident. “Sideswipe Brewing will focus on producing dynamic, palate-punching craft beer in small batches with premium ingredients and painstaking care.”

    Sideswipe Brewing has secured its federal and state brewing license and is nearly operational. O’Herron is using the crowdfunding website Kickstarter to raise funds to complete remaining brewery upgrades and improvements. The brewery has until Dec. 15 to raise $15,000 on Kickstarter; its page is available at

    “I think Columbus is thirsty for more fresh, locally made craft beer, and I am hopeful the community will support us on Kickstarter,” O’Herron said.

    Sideswipe Brewing will offer its lineup of 22-oz. bottled beer at bars, restaurants and retail stores. The initial product line consists of three beers: Elegant Hoodlum Smoke Stout, a complex, full-bodied stout; Fisticuffs IPA, a hoppy, well-balanced India Pale Ale; and Coop Looter Saision, an earthy, Belgian farmhouse ale.

    Sideswipe Brewing will brew its beer at a warehouse space just west of Grandview in Columbus, which is located at 2419 Scioto Harper Drive. O’Herron plans to hold tasting room hours at the brewery as well as beginner and advanced homebrew classes. With time, he also plans to introduce a number of seasonal and specialty bottled beers, as well as keg distribution.

    Bottling is pretty expensive (equipment and labor). Jackie O’s is shifting focus to canning which is more environmentally friendly and fits with the active lifestyle of their local customers (hikers prefer cans to bottles). Of course, Columbus Brewing Company bottles and is looking to expand their offerings in a year or so.

    Elevator has worked with Buckeye Canning to offer some of their beers in cans. Seventh Son may do the same on a limited basis in 2014.

    Craft beer urbanism – putting the hop back into cities
    By André Darmanin Contributor

    What is craft beer urbanism you ask? If urbanism is about bringing people together through culture and placemaking, then craft beer urbanism creates that interaction through its location decisions and ability to congregate local residents as well as tourists. As with urban planning trends and movements, the craft beer movement has been picking up steam for several years. Craft beer isn’t a buzzword or trend that some say should be eliminated in 2014. This form of urbanism should be embraced.
