Bridgetown Brew Works Update
I have a brief update on Bridgetown Brew Works, west side Cincinnati’s first and only brewery. Progress is being made and they are taking a different approach to their launch than most breweries.
They are taking a unique approach to launching their brewery by starting out with a taproom. They anticipate this being the most work in terms of construction build out. They hope to have it open sometime in the spring.
Te biggest challenge so far has been locating adequate, affordable real estate. All signs are currently pointing to a location in Cheviot. This should bode well given the popularity of its close knit bar scene.
Once this is up and running they will begin putting together the brewhouse. This means patrons can enjoy some great local beers as you watch a brewery come to life.
They are currently working on putting together a crowd funding campaign to help raise some capital. Another unique approach to their financial model is a guaranteed donation of 5% of fund raising capital and 5% of future quarterly profits to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Other charities may be added in the future.
As always, I will keep you updated as I know more.
