Seventh Son Brewing has big things in the works for the New Year, announcing this week plans to expand their current brewery, partner with a distributor, and debut a brand new bar and brewery.
Seventh Son Brewing opened in early 2013 and has since been regularly recognized as one of the city’s top breweries. As the brewery enters its fourth year in business, Seventh Son is beginning a 16,000 sq/ft expansion project into the vacant lot behind their location, which will increase the brewery’s production space by 12,000 sq/ft and accommodate a new 30bbl brewhouse and canning line, as well as the addition of a quality control lab. The expansion is expected to conclude this fall.
In addition to their expansion in Italian Village, Seventh Son plans to open a second bar and brewery in the Brewery District called “Antiques on High,” which will specialize in sours and Belgian-style beers.
“The space, which for years housed an antique mall, will be called ‘Antiques on High’ since we will be specializing in some of the original, antique styles of brewing and blending that date back centuries to classic Belgian methods that American craft brewers are now reviving,” said brewery co-owner Collin Castore in a statement.
Antiques on High will include a large roof top patio that overlooks the park next to the Grange building, and the bar will feature regular food trucks. The new brewery will be located at 716 S. High Street.
Seventh Son has also tapped Superior Beverage Group to expand their distribution. Seventh Son’s beer will be distributed in Central Ohio through Superior beginning April 1, with expansion into the Northeast Ohio market as capacity permits.
