Sideswipe & Lineage Collaboration and Bike Ride

Join Sideswipe Brewing and Lineage Brewing in celebrating Their Columbus Craft Brew Week collaboration release by joining us for a bike ride from each brewery, to each brewery! The bike ride will start at 2:00pm at both breweries. Each group will ride to the other brewery. (Max 20 riders on each ride) Tickets will only be sold in advance.

Both breweries worked together to create a grain bill focused on using Jasmin rice as the focus. Each brewery will put their own spin on the beer by choosing their own yeast and hop bill. We are both excited to share this collaboration with you all.

The event begins at 2:00 at both breweries. 20 riders (40 total )

Proceeds from the event will benefit Yay Bikes! www.yaybikes.com

In the event of pouring rain or a massive snow storm, the ride would be canceled, but the T-shirt and tasting will still go on.

Dom's Send Off

Dominic Kirchgessner is leaving us, and while we are going to miss him we want to send him off in style. Dom has been with us since 2014. During this time Dom has worked in almost every capacity a brewery could ask for. From keg washer to brewer. Dom even built the bar and stools you love to sit at and on while enjoying our beer. Dom will be staying in the craft beer industry as he continues to pursue his brew dreams. Be on the lookout for him at a new brewery coming to the central Ohio area this summer. Thanks for the Beers and Godspeed.

4-Year Anniversary Party

4-Year Anniversary Party

It's hard to believe that FOUR years have passed. It's been a wild ride and now here we are getting ready to host our 4th anniversary party! Earlier this summer we snagged a couple barrels from our friends at Middle West Spirits, and we're hoping to have something a little different on hand for you to try. This could be a bit of a peek into our future, as we continue to grow as a brewery.

Mark January 27th on your calendar. We'll crack the doors open at 2, and Fetty's Food Truck will hold court from 2-6. They're a popular food truck featuring South African street food, so we're really excited to have them. Schmidt's will round out the evening from 5-9 rocking their solid German fare.

This party is really about all of you. Without our loyal customers, none of this would be possible, so come on out to the taproom and hoist a pint to yourselves.

Westgate Brews Collaboration

Sideswipe Brewing and Westgate Brews have come together to brew a special collaboration beer. As a team we were torn if we wanted it to be a dark and strong beer or strong and dark beer. After much debate we settled on a Belgian Dark Strong Ale. Westgate brews sent 4 of their members to help with the brew day. It was a challenging day of moving grain, eating donuts, moving more grain, eating pizza, adding some hops and some congratulatory beers. Come enjoy the rewards of our struggles and enjoy some awesome German food from the Schmidt's sausage truck.

Yoga - Beer - Donuts

Yoga - Beer - Donuts

Yoga. It's supposed to be good for you, but who wants to go to a studio and do all that stretching? Not us. So we brought the Yoga to the brewery, and if you're going to get up before 4pm on a Sunday, you might as well grab some donuts on the way in. Awesome donuts. Like from DK Diner, a place known for donuts (It's what the "D" stands for, by the way. The K might stand for karate, or something, but that's not important.). So we've got Yoga. We've got donuts. We've got beer. Does this make the Yoga any less good for you? No. Because Yoga is all about achieving balance, and harmony in your life. What's life with out donuts? What's life without beer? Close your eyes and picture it. Sucks, doesn't it? Now open your eyes, and buy a ticket, so you can begin your journey on a path to enlightenment that includes donuts and beer. 15 bucks for a donut, a pint, and perfectly aligned chakras? Namaste.
