Nowhere in Particular is landing Somewhere in Particular as the famed gypsy brewer teams up with seasoned Columbus bar pros to launch a new brewery and taproom in Northwest Columbus which opens tomorrow.

Owner Joe Casey and his partners explored craft breweries around the country for inspiration and decided to utilize their bar management experience to start their own, choosing to focus on producing beers exclusively for their own taproom rather than to be distributed to bars across Columbus.

“One thing we noticed more than anything [in our travels] are taprooms that service themselves,” said Frankie Heath, one of eight partners in the business. “I feel distribution is going away a little bit.”

They ended up finding a space at the historic Henderson House just off Bethel Road and added a 2,500-square-foot building behind the existing structure to house their brewery and taproom, which seats about 50. There’s also a sizeable outdoor space with additional seating and a boccee ball court, and future plans include utilizing rooms inside the actual Henderson House for additional seating.

“We knew the only way this would work is if we got a brewer that was worth a damn,” said Heath, so the owners approached Pat Sullivan, the force behind acclaimed gypsy brewery Nowhere in Particular, about heading up the brewing operation, which is also where the brewery gets its name: Somewhere in Particular, or SIP.

The term “gypsy brewer” refers to a brewer who brews their beer using other brewery’s equipment, rather than at their own dedicated brewery. Sullivan will continue to produce beers around the country under the Nowhere in Particular brand in addition to brewing for SIP.

SIP’s brewery features a 7-barrel brewing system with four 15-barrel fermenters. Their initial lineup of beers include a Baltic Porter, a single hopped IPA, a Belgian table beer, a double IPA, a porter and a Belgian tripel. SIP will also offer two of Nowhere in Particular’s gypsy brews on tap, a few local guest drafts from breweries like Jackie O’s and Columbus Brewing Company, and a cider. The taproom will also offer a full selection of spirits and wine, and a small kitchen will serve several sandwiches, pizzas, salads and bar snacks.

Somewhere In Particular will open their doors on Tuesday, October 16. The brewery is is located at 5053 Dierker Road and hours are Monday-Thursday from 3pm-10pm, Friday from 3pm-12am, Saturday from 11am-12am and Sunday from 11am-10pm. Happy hour will be from 3-6pm Monday-Friday and will feature $3 house drafts.
