Grove City Brewing Company is opening next week! Okay, the brewery has actually been open for months, but their GRAND OPENING is taking place next Wednesday, May 31.

Head brewer Trevor Luther explained it this way, “You only get one chance to make a good first impression. We wanted to have our staff in place and our full kitchen ready to go.”

And, of course, the beers. Luther has a good line-up ready for next week’s gala. Expect to find their Radio Ship IPA on tap and their O’Harley’s Hazelnut Porter on nitro, plus a malted-chocolate infused version on CO2. Their Pale Ale will be served straight up and also infused with pineapple. Similarly, look for their standard Amber Ale as well as a butterscotch infused variant.

Doors open at 1pm and there will be hourly door prizes. Each guest will receive on free raffle ticket and additional tickets can be purchased, with proceeds benefitting the local food bank. The grand prizes include a day with the brewer and a day with the Plum Run winemaker.

Executive chef Chad Roth will have the kitchen fired up and will feature their full menu including BBQ Beef Brisket sandwich, flatbreads, appetizers and bistro desserts. There will be free samples of food items all day. Brewery and winery tours will be available from 1:30–4:30pm and from 7:30-8:30pm. The ribbon cutting ceremony, with the mayor of Grove City, takes place at 6pm, followed by live music from My Car Radio at 6:30pm.

While talking with Luther in the brewery, I happened to spy some barrels of Barleywine aging. Watch for an announcement this fall of their release party for four Hudson Honey Barleywines at a whopping 16% ABV. Made with honey from Grove City’s own Honey House, there will be a Bourbon barrel aged version, a wine barrel aged version, and a blend of the two.

The Grove City Brewing Company is located at 3946 Broadway in the historic district of Grove City and is collocated with the Plum Run Winery.
