LEWIS CENTER, OHIO November 15, 2018 – Olentangy River Brewing Company (ORBC), the first craft brewery in Lewis Center, Ohio, will be opening its doors to the public on Saturday, November 17. Established in 2017, ORBC has repurposed a 1980’s warehouse and office building into their beautiful new Brewhouse and Taproom. Located near the intersection of Route 23 (High Street) and Powell Road/Polaris Blvd, the brewery is situated just to the east of the Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center.

The business, which was a dream of Scott & Bethany Schweitzer and Ryan & Sarah Wilkins, emphasizes the importance of creating community in Lewis Center. “Our hope is that people will immediately feel welcomed when they walk in our doors, in addition to loving our beer and coffee.” says Ryan Wilkins, Co-Owner. “Whether they are stopping in for a coffee on their way to work in the morning, enjoying our craft beer as a happy hour with their co-workers, or celebrating with their friends, we believe our taproom will be a place that anyone can call home.”

The Olentangy River Brewing Taproom will open every morning at 7:00 a.m. for morning coffee drinkers. Weekdays and Sundays, the taproom will be open until 10:00 p.m., and will remain open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

Olentangy River Brewing Company partners with The Roosevelt Coffeehouse at their new craft brewery to open at 303 Green Meadows Dr. S., just off the corner of High St. and Powell Rd.

LEWIS CENTER, OHIO July 25, 2018 – Olentangy River Brewing Company has inked a deal with The Roosevelt Coffeehouse to partner for a coffee experience inside their upcoming taproom at 303 Green Meadows Dr. S. in Lewis Center, Ohio. The space will be co-branded, and include the same community focused experience coffee-lovers in Columbus have come to expect at The Roosevelt Coffeehouse location Downtown on Long St. Hand crafted coffee drinks will be made available in the taproom every day of the week starting at 7:00 am, giving Lewis Center area residents a community focused gathering place for great coffee, alongside their locally crafted beer.

“As soon as we decided to create the brewery, I knew that we needed to partner with Roosevelt for coffee,” says Ryan Wilkins, one of the owners and founders of Olentangy River Brewing Company. “Our dream is to create a place where people can find community in our neighborhood, just like what Roosevelt has been able to create downtown. We really believe in the work that they do, being a people-focused business that not only provides great coffee, but also creates a place where people can connect and build community. We love what Roosevelt stands for, and are thrilled to partner with them for our coffee experience in the Olentangy River Brewing taproom.”

The Roosevelt Coffeehouse has built a loyal customer base in Columbus since opening in 2015. Their emphasis of supporting charitable causes, while being a 501(c)3 charity themselves, makes their mission a unique one. And people have responded in a big way. At any given time of day, the coffeehouse is packed, with people connecting over a great coffee drink. This partnership will be the first collaboration of its kind for the folks with The Roosevelt Coffeehouse, and will also be one of the very first coffee experiences in town featuring coffee from Roosevelt Coffee Roasters, the new roastery located in Franklinton. The Roosevelt Coffeehouse and Roosevelt Coffee Roasters Founder Kenny Sipes is excited.

“We were talking at an event in early 2017, and Ryan asked me what I thought about partnering to create a coffee experience inside a new craft brewery taproom that would be opening in Lewis Center,” says Sipes. “Over the past year and a half since that conversation, we have really caught a vision for what Olentangy River Brewing is planning to do in the community, and we are super excited to be walking alongside them to make their vision come to life. This is a great next step for our business, and can’t wait to see it in action.”
