OLENTANGY RIVER BREWING AND THE ROOSEVELT COFFEEHOUSE TO PARTNER IN LEWIS CENTER
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.”
NEW LOCAL CRAFT BREWERY PLANNED FOR LEWIS CENTER
Olentangy River Brewing Company is slated for an opening date in late summer 2018
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.
