Co-founders Nate Cornett and Lisa Wolters said four years have gone by in the blink of an eye.

“We made some big changes this past year when we opened our distribution center in a former bowling alley building and launched a new look with a stylized logo and colorful cans,” Cornett said. “You were very patient with our changes as we caught our rhythm after expanding our capacity with a new brewing system in 2015. We couldn’t have done it without you and we want to say thanks.”

Yellow Springs Brewery opened in April 2013. It later added 1,600 square feet and new production equipment to its brewhouse and tasting room to help accommodate retail sales of canned beers, and purchased the former Village Lanes bowling alley at 1475 Xenia Ave. in Yellow Springs for use as a distribution center.
