5 years ago on September 27th, 2013, we opened our doors for business. The ensuing years have seen unimaginable growth within the walls of our building. From the addition of the taproom in early 2015 and a full kitchen later that year, to a brewhouse expansion that included new 45 & 15 barrel tanks and a full barrel-aging sour program. By mid August we will have expanded one step further, completing renovation on a new dedicated events space, the Hickory Room.
Please join us in celebrating 5 years of craft in the Columbus community all day on September 29th! While details are still coming together, you can expect an amazing blow out party hosted in both the Taproom and Hickory Room events space with great beer and food. We can confirm right now that we will have 75 draft beers available throughout the entire WRB building that day, our largest draft lists to date! We will also have a number of specialty bottles available for public sale (ticketed, first come first serve when doors open). Not all the available bottles have been finalized, but here are some confirmed on the lineup:
- Bourbon Barrel Salted Chocolate Dire Wolf
- Apple Brandy Wolfmann (Imperial Wheat stout)
- Rye Barrel DEFCON (Barleywine)
- High Banks (Oat IPA)
Stay tuned on additional bottle announcements, as we plan to add more including a couple of sours!
We will form a line on E Hickory near the taproom garage door, where public entrance will be for the party. Doors will open at 10 am and guests will be handed a numbered ticket upon entry (dictates your spot in the bottle sale line). Both the Hickory Room events space and Taproom will be open at that time, so guests can filter and grab beers or food in whichever room they'd like once receiving their tickets!
Please check back in over the coming weeks and stay tuned for announcements as we flesh out final details, including: full bottle/draft/food lists, the early bird party (which will be held the evening before on Friday the 28th) and all logistics on the public bottle sale!
