Ohio Brewery News



Back in July, we reported on Boss Dog Brewing‘s new canning equipment being moved into the Cleveland Heights brewery. This week, the first cans of their flagship IPA, Millennial Hipster, came rolling off the line. You can pick up six-packs at the brewery now, and it will be appearing at select Cleveland-area retailers soon. Follow Boss Dog on Facebook for more updates on this and future can releases: facebook.com/bossdogbrewing


Congrats to UnHitched Brewing, who will hold their grand opening in Louisville on Saturday, October 26. The community northeast of Canton gets its first craft brewery, housed in the historic Louisville Bowl building; the bar top and tables were constructed from wood reclaimed from the original bowling lanes. Brewer Garret Conley will not only be rolling out craft beers from the brewhouse, but also in charge of the brewpub’s charcuterie program (not available this weekend, but coming soon).

Congrats to Aistear Brewing, who will hold the grand opening of their new brewery in Bowling Green on Saturday, October 26. The taproom – which owners Christopher Thompson and Christopher Gilmore refer to as the “Great Hall” – draws lots of inspiration from table-top games, including a tap stack in the shape of a 20-sided die.

You learn something new every day: the autumn berry is the fruit of the autumn olive tree (Elaeagnus umbellate), indigenous to eastern Asia, but considered an invasive species in North America. As Sixth Sense Brewing discovered, this small, red fruit is uniquely tart and sweet, making a perfect feature ingredient for Autumn Gold, a tart wheat beer featuring locally-foraged autumn berries (plus red and black raspberries). Try it on draft at the taproom in Jackson.


Wishing a warm welcome to Moeller Brew Barn in Troy, the newest member of the Ohio Craft Brewers Association! The offshoot location of the popular rural brewery in Maria Stein, the Troy outpost is housed in a beautifully restored church just west of the town square. Boasting a wide variety of craft beer, a full brewpub menu, a spacious outdoor beer garden and, we’re told, the largest grain silo in the city of Troy, this is a miraculous addition to Miami County. Make plans to visit and get your Ohio On Tap passport stamp!
