Two things we are passionate about. Barleywines and Barrels. This morning we filled two freshly dumped Kentucky Bourbon barrels with our Barleywine. Featuring Maris Otter and EKG hops this beer was boiled for 3 hours and fermented delicately. These barrels will age for a long while before release but we will have some of the base Barleywine available on tap very soon.Read More
Join us Saturday October 6th for our next can release as we debut our new IPA, Spectral Alphabet and a new sour beer Radiance of Being in 16oz cans!
Spectral Alphabet - IPA 6.6% ABV
Our newest hoppy beer making its draft and can debut. This beer is brewed with Mosaic and Citra hops. Hazy, balanced, delicious notes of juicy orange citrus and soft tropical fruit. $16/4 pack
Radiance of Being - Berliner with Raspberries 4.2%
This variant of our Berliner-style weissbier is fermented with raspberries. Fruit forward with a balancing, clean and soft acidity. $14/4 pack
Both beers will be available on draft when we open at Noon. Cans go on sale at Noon as well. Limits will be set morning of the release based on turnout. We are a small brewery and put as much of these beers into cans as our system allows. The goal would be that anyone that arrives by Noon Saturday has the opportunity to buy something. Thanks for your understanding!
S&S Meat House will be on site serving food at 11am for anyone that gets here early. They will be serving up some of the finest smoked meat BBQ and sides in the Greater Dayton area and will be here till 3pm or until sold out. You don’t wanna miss this one!
Please be mindful of our neighbors around us. Overflow parking is also available in the lot accessible from Wayne Ave on our block between the vacant old Halal Market building and the vacant building next to the Taproom. Please don't drink in the parking lot as the neighbors will call the police.
Join us for fun, food, and beer as we host our first Oktoberfest party for the tapping of our Marzen. This traditional German-style lager is most associated with this time of year and Oktoberfest in America. Notes of toasted malt sweetness and German hop spice define this medium bodied, clean copper hued lager.
We will have on hand soft pretzels to snack on, an accordion player for entertainment, and a stein hoisting competition starting at 6pm. Details of the stein hoisting competition will be posted shortly.

We sell our branded 750ml swing-top glass but will fill your 750ml, 32oz, or 64oz brown glass or stainless growlers. We will not fill clear glass. We will not fill the large German-styled growlers with the large handles. If you are bringing screw-top style growlers, you must bring your own caps. Our growlers have swing-tops so we do not have any stock of screw caps.
Please bring them in clean and ready to go. We recommend a hot water rinse immediately after emptying until no foam comes out and stored without the cap on. Dirty growlers will be refused a fill.
Thanks for your understanding!Read More

Parking is limited on site. We are aware this is less than ideal and are working on a more permanent solution. For the short term, the lots located on the other side of the building south of us on Wayne Ave are available for parking this weekend to help and street parking exists all around the brewery. Please be respectful and mindful of our neighbors.
We hope to see everyone out for great beer, food, and company!

Spring is here (regardless of what the weather says) and so is some new merch! Fresh colors of our logo tee along with a new design featuring our mascot, Willi Goat. We hope you enjoy these items as much as we do. Maybe this will tide us all over while we soon begin making beer to prepare for an opening...
When we started planning our brewery a few years ago spontaneous beer was the spark. Today we brought home our coolship. We can’t wait for the possibilities that this simple piece of equipment brings with it. Along with our 20bbl oak foeders, our passion for mixed fermentation and spontaneous beer can be realized into beer for us all to enjoy. A very exciting day.Read More
We enjoy sharing what we are up to. Especially when it relates to our beers. We have talked a lot about our passion for mixed fermentation beers but haven’t said as much about our pub ales.
We love pale ales and will always feature a couple in our taproom. Often they will be opaque, balanced, well molded, aromatic, and filled with hops.
The beer shown is a test batch DIPA that has been double dry hopped with galaxy and fermented with a special blend of two yeasts. #craftbeer #ipa #branchandboneRead More
