One Dayton brewpub postpones opening, another launches food menu


Warped Wing Brewing Company, the production brewery in the works in downtown Dayton, has pushed back its opening from mid-December to mid-January, president and co-founder Joe Waizmann said Monday.

Another Dayton brewpub, the Fifth Street Brewpub, has set Monday, Dec. 2, as a grand opening for its kitchens.

Waizmann said scheduled utility upgrades around the new Warped Wing brewery pushed back the projected opening date. “Rather than a Christmas opening, we’ve elected to shoot for early to mid- January start date,” he said.

Warped Wing Brewing Company will be a full-scale production craft brewery with a tasting room, located at 26 Wyandot St., between the Oregon Historic District and Fifth Third Field in downtown Dayton.

There are at least 13 breweries, brewpubs and microbreweries in various stages of development in the Dayton area, including three that have opened this month alone: Hairless Hare Brewery in Vandalia, Eudora Brewing Company in Kettering and Star City Brewing Company in Miamisburg.

Fifth Street Brewpub’s kitchen already has begun serving as part of a “soft opening” and will ramp up after next week’s grand opening, its founders said. Dave Tickel, the pub’s manager, said Monday that the pub’s menu will expand in 2014 to include burgers and other pub fare after ventilation hoods are installed in the pub’s kitchen.

The brewpub hopes to be brewing and serving its own beers in early 2014, depending on financing and brewhouse construction, Fifth Street Brewpub’s membership director, Maureen Barry, said Monday.

Fifth Street Brewpub is co-operatively owned and has almost 2,300 member-owners, but it is open to the public as well. Its hours are Monday through Thursday 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., Friday 11 a.m. to midnight, Saturday 11 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday noon to 10 p.m., with kitchen service ending one hour before closing.
