LEWIS CENTER, OHIO March 1, 2018 – A group of local entrepreneurs and beer lovers are hard at work building a new local craft brewery in Lewis Center, Ohio, named Olentangy River Brewing Company. The new brewery will inhabit a three-decade-old warehouse near the corner of Route 23 and Powell Road in the heart of the community. The address of the production facility and taproom will be 303 Green Meadows Dr. South, Lewis Center, OH 43035. Renovations on the building will begin in mid March.

“We noticed that there were a lot of beer lovers in our area that were looking for a place to call home. After doing a lot of research within the community, it became clear that Lewis Center wants a local craft brewery,” said Sarah Wilkins, one of the owners and founders of Olentangy River Brewing Company.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring something unique and local to the Polaris and Lewis Center area, especially to be able to repurpose an old warehouse. Our area has a lot to offer, and we believe people in southern Delaware County will love having a central location to enjoy great local beer, coffee, and food trucks,” said Scott Schweitzer, owner and founder.

The space will feature a production brew house, a taproom, and outdoor space for gathering, along with an area for live music and future plans for an event space. In addition to serving locally crafted beers, Olentangy River Brewing Company will partner with local coffee roasters to serve quality coffee drinks. Popular local food trucks will be available to provide quality food. The space will be family friendly and welcome pets, runners and hikers from Highbanks Metro Park, residents from surrounding communities, and anyone else who loves great beer in Central Ohio and beyond.

Local brew masters Enrique Iglesias (yes, that’s really his name) and Josh Vogel will be teaming up to lead the brewing operation. Iglesias, who goes by Quique, was brew master and owner of a successful craft brewery in Puerto Rico named Dacay before moving to Powell, Ohio when his wife took a job transfer to Central Ohio. Vogel and Iglesias met through common friends and hit it off immediately. Their unique collaborative approach to brewing is already resulting in beers that people will love.

“Our beer will span the spectrum of tastes, from juicy New England IPAs, to Imperial Russian Stouts, to light and crisp hand crafted Pilsners, and everything in between. We truly want to create brews for both beer aficionados and newcomers alike,” said Iglesias. Plans are to have at least ten Olentangy River Brewing Company beers on tap in the tasting room at all times and feature other local craft beers.
