Canal Winchester getting another craft brewery (this one a little smaller)

 

A Canal Winchester restaurant and coffee shop is brewing up a new venture, but it won’t be making coffee.

 

Loose Rail Brewing is set to join the ever-expanding Central Ohio craft beer scene at 37 Waterloo St. next spring.

City will waive competitive bidding for project

BY ANDREW MILLER, THIS WEEK COMMUNITY NEWS

Tuesday, December 15, 2015 - 6:34 PM

 

The Canal Winchester Interurban Building renovation appears to have jumped the tracks, at least temporarily.  The historic building that served as a station along the Columbus Interurban electrified trolley system, connecting Canal Winchester to downtown Columbus and beyond, was scheduled to be renovated for meeting and event space and to open next spring.

 

However, the construction bid process netted only one response -- and it was double the estimate for the project.  Construction Services Administrator Bill Sims told Canal Winchester City Council at its Dec. 7 meeting the single bid from J.S. Brown was technically submitted past the Dec. 1 deadline for bids and came in at about $180,000.  The original estimate for the work, prepared by FMS Architects, was about $90,000.

 

The city had budgeted $150,000 total for the project before receiving the estimate. ... To try to keep the project on track for being completed in 2016, Canal Winchester City Council agreed to Sims' request to waive the formal competitive bidding process so the city staff may negotiate a deal between a subset of contractors that have previously worked with the city.

BrewDog USA wants its visitors to stay awhile longer.

 

The Scottish brewery, which just opened its first U.S. restaurant and bar in Canal Winchester and is getting set to fire up its 100,000-square-foot U.S. brewery, already is thinking ahead to its next projects with DogHouse Columbus.

Beer hot tubs and malt back rubs on tap as BrewDog wraps hotel fund raise

BrewDog will be filling hot tubs with beer for two people.

 

The Canal Winchester brewery wrapped up its Indigogo crowdfunding for its $6 million craft beer hotel and sour beer brewing facility on Monday. The two-month campaign raised $324,072 from thirsty fans, far above the $75,000 goal that was initially set.

First Look: A walk through BrewDog's new craft beer hotel

 

brewdog-doghouse-exterior-3-dje*750xx4032-2268-0-378.jpg

 

The neon sign behind the front "desk" at BrewDog’s DogHouse hotel is fitting.

 

“Hotel California Doghouse” glows in red neon and verily, though you can check out any time you like – a beer fan many never want to leave.

 

The Scotland-born craft brewery, which makes its U.S. home in Canal Winchester, is opening its most intriguing project to date. DogHouse is what the brewery claims to be the world’s first “craft beer hotel.” It’s hard to find anything to counter it.

 

“We wanted to be in your face with beer,” Keith Bennet, head of special projects, told me.

BrewDog Set for Opening of the DogHouse Craft Beer Hotel

 

BrewDog’s Canal Winchester brewery will be the site of its new craft beer hotel, the DogHouse, opening on Monday, August 27. The 32-room “immersive beer utopia” will be the first of its kind and will feature beer taps in each room, a built-in shower beer fridge, and an interactive beer museum.

 

The indie craft brewer first announced plans for the DogHouse in March of 2017, with a crowdfunding campaign that repeatedly exceeded expectations and raised $300 thousand, four times its original goal. Those who contributed to the campaign received first access to room reservations, and the enthusiasm appears to have sustained throughout the process: More than 500 nights have already been pre-booked.

Canal Winchester housing project shot down on council objections

 

screen-shot-2018-12-20-at-13205-pm*750xx

 

Council members said they wanted to see "upscale executive homes" closer to $750,000 to keep pace with the quality of house seen in Powell or Dublin. 🤣

 

Planed on undeveloped land south of the intersection of Hayes Road and Lithopolis Road, Middletown Farms would sit on an 80-acre parcel, today owned by a trust. Some of the land has to be rezoned to pave the way for the development, according to an application from Westerville-based Westport Homes.

That's uh, that's quite aspirational. I bid them good luck with that one.

They're out of touch thinking anyone is going to pay that to live there especially when the market is slowing down. They're going to wind up with no development at all.

I was in downtown Canal this morning. This project has broken ground. Just as nice as anything Clintonville has put up.

It's at 18-26 Waterloo Street. So half a block West of High Street (main street in Canal Winchester) just across from Loose Rail Brewing. Good job, Canal!

 

Edit. It's over 6,000 square feet of retail with 18 apartments above. Said it would be open by Summer 2020.

That's a good looking project. Canal Winchester is really booming right now. The amount of houses being built along Gender Road and along 33 is pretty impressive. I wouldn't be surprised if their population breaks the 10k mark in 2020, which is impressive considering it was only 4,478 in 2000.

Seems like it has a bit of influence from the schools in town.

 

Good point.  Here's the old middle school building for reference.
