The new facility will be on Ohio 4 in a former Pepsi plant and will have lower-level space for large-scale barrel aging. It will feature a covered outdoor patio and full kitchen. It also will have space for private events.
“Their increase in barrel production, along with a location to enjoy their craft beer and food, adds another chapter to Hamilton’s rich brewing and entertainment history,” said Hamilton Mayor Pat Moeller. “Making great beer is part of the history of Hamilton.”
The city’s news release said the $3.1 million expansion project is set to open in early 2023.
``We are very excited to be expanding our production capacity and being a part of all the great things happening in Hamilton,’’ said Tom Schaefer, co-founder of Third Eye Brewing.
After city officials made the announcement of the brewery’s new location, Municipal Brew Works announced it partnered with Third Eye to create “Route 4 Revive-Ale New England IPA,” which is began selling during Thursday’s State of the City address.
“Congratulations Third Eye and welcome to the neighborhood. Come get this beer while it lasts because it won’t be here long,” said a post on Municipal Brew Works’ Facebook page Friday morning.
