Here's how much BrewDog paid for its Franklinton bar site

 

brewdog-franklinton-site-1-dje*750xx4452-2509-0-356.jpg

 

While BrewDog USA Inc. has been plenty busy at its new home in Canal Winchester, it's getting ready to make a bar in Franklinton come to life, too.

 

On March 1, the Scottish craft brewer closed on the purchase of a pair of small parcels and a 4,200-square foot building at 463 W. Town St for $475,000. Last fall, co-founder James Watt identified 463 W. Town St. as the chosen spot for its Columbus bar.

BrewDog adding bars, seating, staff to meet demand at its DogTap bar, restaurant

By JD Malone, The Columbus Dispatch

Updated: March 6, 2017 at 12:49 PM

 

Open just two weeks, DogTap has drawn huge crowds and some consternation.  "Waiting times, availability of food, beer selection and the level of customer service in these first couple of weeks have not quite been at the level we aspire for them to be at," the company wrote in a blog post published today. 

 

Reviews on Yelp point to some problems with food quality, spotty service and long, long waits, but reviewers also praised BrewDog's beers, the restaurant's design and atmosphere. ... DogTap has seen twice the traffic that the Scottish craft brewers planned for.  The company estimated 14,000 people had stopped in and the bar had served more than 10,000 pints of its flagship Punk India pale ale since it opened on February 20.

 

To resolve things, BrewDog plans to add "a lot more staff," a bar with a growler filling station and additional seating near the entrance to alleviate crowding in the restaurant.  More seating and an additional bar are planned on the mezzanine, which overlooks the restaurant and part of the brewery.  Also, a third new bar, built out of a shipping container, is planned on the patio outside.

Craft brewer revamping its look to go with new name, signs with distributor

 

kindredmockups-040417-6*660xx2550-1434-0-108.jpg

 

​Kindred Beer now really will be Kindred Beer. The year-old Gahanna microbrewer has tapped new leadership, is offering food to its tasting room and barrel house visitors and is expanding to a second taproom with plans in Clintonville. But also as part of its makeover, the brewer has renamed itself — formerly it was Kindred Artisan Ales — and rebranded its beers.

Combustion Brewery hopes to be gathering spot for all with large, family-friendly space

 

combustion-brewery-wall-dje*480xx5297-2988-0-0.jpg

 

Combustion is more than just a name to Keith Jackson.

 

The owner of the soon-to-open Combustion Brewery & Taproom picked that moniker because the creation of fire evokes feelings of warmth and community — think of barbecues and bonfires. It’s that sense he hopes to bring to Pickerington when his brewery opens April 15.

oh no i had no idea they stopped the tours, what a shame. when i first moved to columbus, i lived in the continent briefly. before going out we used to walk over to the brewery, run through the tour trail ignoring it all, which was a walk through type tour you could do at your own pace, and get to the beer tasting room at the end. they gave you one or two drafts for free. believe it or not there was always a fresh dark bud that was pretty good, at least there at the brewery. i dont think i ever saw it elsewhere. come to think of it, i can see why they gave up the tours! ha.

BrewDog's first Ohio beers expected out by summer

 

It may have taken longer than expected, but the first of BrewDog’s Ohio-brewed beers will be released by summer.  The Scotland-based craft brewery, which calls Canal Winchester its U.S. home, has the first batches of Punk IPA in its tanks.  It has been importing its beer from the Scotland mothership so far.

( . . .)

The company updated fans on its progress via its blog - https://www.brewdog.com/usa/lowdown/blog/brewdog-usa-is-a-go.  The blog also noted that the keg line is completed and the canning line, capable of 32,500 cans an hour, will be up and running in the next few weeks.

Loose Rail Brewing Co. is prepared to toot its own horn.

 

Though plenty proud of the beers it will be serving when it opens at 37 Waterloo St. in Canal Winchester May 5, this horn tooting will be quite literal. The brewery and taproom boasts a train whistle for use at last call or after a good tip.

1487 Brewery starting to land accounts, ready to start selling beer in June

 

1487-brewery-costic-chris-king-ben-dje*480xx5295-2987-17-0.jpg

 

The launch of 1487 Brewery isn’t going according to the original plan but, being a startup, that's par for the course.

 

Founder and CEO Ben King spoke about the ups and downs of developing and starting his Licking County craft brewery Friday at Columbus Startup Week. When I spoke with King last December about his motivations and plans, the hope was to have a beer garden opened in the Columbus area later this year to accompany the Alexandria pilot brewery (which also happens to be his house).

Didn't catch this.  Kind of disappointing - Zauber was one of my favorite local breweries (probably because I'm partial to Belgian beers).  Will be interested to see what happens there.

Cross-posted from the Columbus Bars thread:

 


Below is a Business First article link from last year about how the latest wave of craft brewers are sparking the reuse of industrial and retail spaces.  It looks at how this trend has been good for the real estate market in general and some neighborhoods in particular.  These smaller craft brewers have been turning long-dormant industrial spaces and past-their-prime retail sites into active destinations for consumers and for other businesses that want to be nearby to this activity.

 

Three locations were mentioned:

  • Land-Grant Brewing in Franklinton that converted the former Capital Lift & Manufacturing Co. elevator and conveyor factory into its brewery in 2014.

  • Lineage Brewing in Clintonville that converted a former car wash building along High Street into its brewpub in 2015.

  • Seventh Son Brewing in Italian Village that converted a former automotive repair shop along Fourth Street in 2013.


(I know it's nearly a year old, but I just came across it.  Plus, its just so on-the-mark for a development website like UO.)

 

Breweries sparking reuse of industrial, retail spaces long past prime:

New Distillery Will Open in Grandview Next Year

 

With the recent change in laws allowing distilleries to open tasting rooms and restaurants, brace yourself for the increasing number you’ll likely see in the next few years. High Bank Distillery, coming to Grandview in 2018, is one of them.

 

Co-owners Jordan Helman (Zest co-owner) and Adam Hines knew they wanted to start something a little over two years ago, and back then, the concept they had in mind was a craft brewery.

City’s First All-Sour Brewery and Taproom Now Open

 

 

As local craft breweries multiply, some may think the market is becoming oversaturated. But, for Josh Martinez of Pretentious Barrel House, it’s just getting started.

Columbus Brewing can keep name, restaurant will change its moniker, brewery’s attorney says

By JD Malone, The Columbus Dispatch

Posted: December 27, 2017 at 4:14 PM

 

After two years of legal bickering and 20 years of questions, there now is just one Columbus Brewing Co.  The craft brewery, owned by Beth and Eric Bean, retains the moniker, while the Columbus Brewing Co. Restaurant, owned by Doug Griggs and Mike Campbell, will be looking for a new handle.

 

The brewery and restaurant agreed to an out-of-court settlement last month, the details of which are not public.  The restaurant will change its name sometime in 2018 and can no longer use the shortened CBC brand, according to the brewery’s attorney. ... The two businesses have always been separate, but that was never obvious.

 

District Brewing, the brewery’s legal name, formed in 1988 and held the trademark for the Columbus Brewing Co. brand since 1989.  In 1997, then-owner Jeff Edwards invited Cameron Mitchell to add a restaurant onto the front of the Short Street brewery.  Edwards stipulated that the restaurant would be called Columbus Brewing Co. Restaurant.

 

The two have been confused ever since. ... Eric Bean bought into the brewery in 2006 and Mitchell sold the restaurant to Griggs and Campbell in 2007.  The issue of who would use the Columbus Brewing Co. name and how it would be used was never addressed until this out-of-court settlement.

Business First posted a video interview with the co-founder of Seventh Son Brewing Co. - an Italian Village craft brewery that is in the midst of a pair of expansions:  https://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2017/12/22/news-brews-seventh-son-co-founder-talks-brewing.html

 

-- The first expansion for Seventh Son Brewing is at its existing 1101 N. Fourth Street bar and brewery, where a large new addition will greatly increase its production capacity and allow it to reach other parts of the state.  (An Oct. 2017 construction pic of this addition was posted over at https://www.urbanohio.com/forum/index.php/topic,5953.msg881005.html#msg881005 in the Italian Village projects thread.)

 

-- The second expansion for Seventh Son Brewing would establish a barrel-aging space and second bar in the Brewery District-German Village area at 716 S. High Street.

Reviving Hoster Brewing: A deal with Actual Brewing makes sure the Gold Top brand continues its long history

 

sign-hoster-factory.jpg

 

The historic Hoster beer brand with its signature Gold Top brew has lived a nomadic existence since its namesake brewpub turned off the lights in 2001. The owners of the 182-year-old brand and the recipe for the Dortmunder-style lager have lived off contract-brewing deals that put kegs of the beer out to the masses sporadically over the years, while also trying to raise funds for a branded brewpub to call a home of its own. Now, for the first time since that restaurant and bar shut down, Hoster expects to have a regular flow of beer on the market.
