Wild Ohio Brewing Launching Brewing Facility in Columbus
Wild Ohio Brewing has landed a new production facility right here in Columbus. On the market since 2016, the tea-beer brewing company has worked with Four String Brewing Co. as well as Rivertown Brewing in Cincinnati to put out its brews. By the end of March, the company will launch its own brewing site at 2025 S. High St.
Russell Pinto, CEO of Wild Ohio Brewing, has been on the lookout for a production facility here in Columbus since he bought and rebranded the company, once called Luna Kombucha and founded in Clintonville.
His production facility on South High Street is one of a cluster of buildings known as The Fort and owned by Fortner Upholstering. He’s working with more than 10,000 square feet of space. There are no plans to open a taproom as of yet, but it’s there that Pinto hopes to increase his annual production from 3,000 barrels to 10,000 barrels.
Wild Ohio will also continue to diversify their lineup of brews, adding two more and introducing 16-ounce cans that can be purchased individually. They currently offer six tea-beers, in blueberry, black cherry bourbon, blood orange tangerine, mango, lemonade and cranberry flavors. They recently released a mixed 12-pack, and Pinto says he’ll be adding a mango passion fruit and peach flavors once production starts at their new facility.
All of his products are made without barley or malt, and are gluten-free.
Wild Ohio Brewing can be found in most major stores, including Giant Eagle, Meijer, and target, along with hundreds of other smaller convenience stores and food marts in Columbus, Dayton, Cleveland and Cincinnati, and everywhere in between.
