The owners -- including Jim Goodman, Matt Munafo, Mark Jackson, Aaron Holtz, David Frey and Head Brewer Sean Willingham -- hope to produce enough beer to cater to businesses in the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton areas.
“We have had a small hiccup in getting opened, but things are progressing well, and we are very happy with the support that the city has given us and the excitement that people have for us,” Goodman said.
Once open, the brewers hope to host food trucks and will have limited menu options from local restaurants available for take-in.
“The Municipal Brew Works will be a big plus for Hamilton’s economy,” Mayor Patrick Moeller said. “There will be job creation and a positive addition to the quality of life, which also assists economic development. The Brew Works is also a salute to Hamilton’s past history when we had breweries.”
So far the owners have not released an updated estimate on when the brewery will open.
Municipal Brew Works hopes to employ 12 people. Their goal is about produce about 2,500 barrels per year.
They expect to serve four to six standard year-round beers, along with several seasonal and “guest brews.”
