Ohio Brewery Roundup
Congratulations to Ohio’s newest craft brewery, DankHouse Brewing in Newark. They celebrated their grand opening on Thursday, November 16th. DankHouse is Newark’s second craft brewery, but the first to open taproom on-premises. Buck’s Brewing Company is currently brewing in Newark with plans to open a taproom soon. Trek Brewing Company is also currently building their brewery and taproom in Newark and anticipate opening soon.
Fall is maybe the best time to visit Rockmill Brewery outside Lancaster. A nip in the air, the last flecks of autumn color and the first pours of Holiday Ale. Tasting room is generally open Thursday-Sunday, but check their calendar for precise hours.
Lager Heads Brewing Company’s Winter Mischief – an amber ale brewed with honey and spices – is now available in bottles and on draft in their Medina brewery taproom. Enjoy, but try not to get in trouble…
