Dreaming brewery dreams

You may be one of those folks who doesn’t drink beer. Still, you can’t help but have noticed the business boomlet in the Miami Valley in brewing and selling locally produced beers and ales.

Our reporter Mark Fisher wrote about the trend last week, looking at the new places that have started up in the last few years. “A dozen craft breweries of varying sizes and concepts have opened their doors in a market where none existed just three years ago. The new breweries are helping to renew downtown Dayton, revitalize hard-to-fill commercial properties and resurrect a beer-making heritage that runs deep in southwest Ohio’s history,” Fisher wrote.

One of the new breweries, Dayton’s Warped Wing, announced that it’s ready to expand after just a few months in business. Good for them.

It’s neat to see an industry that makes people happy adding jobs and helping build our local economy. Thoughts? Email rrollins@coxohio.com.
