Dayton, Ohio based craft brewery Warped Wing Brewing Co. plans to open “The Warped Wing Barrel Room & Smokery,” a unique barrel-aged facility, taproom, eatery and test pilot brewery at a new Springboro development in the summer of 2020. The 20,000 square foot facility will boast a large taproom with outdoor biergarten and a flexible event space. The remaining facility will accommodate up to 400+ aging barrels along with brewing, canning, packaging and distribution.
Warped Wing will provide a one-of-a-kind experience for patrons. Special customer programs are being developed such as a Barrel Club Reserve membership, which will allow members to get up-close, hands-on tour experiences, exclusive tastings and first offering purchases of extremely limited bottles. Warped Wing has won accolades for a series of their barrel-aged products such as their “Whiskey Rebellion.” They also continue to develop many other brands within their traditional beer and barrel-aged product portfolio.
“Our barrel-aged program at Warped Wing has propelled us into an interesting place,” said Co-founder and VP of Sales and Marketing Nick Bowman. “My partner, Co-founder and Brewmaster John Haggerty, brought a wealth of knowledge and experience with him when he joined our team 6 years ago,” said Bowman. “He pushes the creativity of recipe development to another level. The scale of the new facility and the pilot system will give us endless opportunities to experiment with new styles and flavor profiles.”
The new facility will not only offer bottled and draft barrel-aged beers but also a staple of its flagship beers such as IPA’s, stouts, other styles and the brewery’s top selling Trotwood Lager. There will also be an extensive bottle collection for patrons to choose from which will be available to drink on premise or purchased to go.
The restaurant at the site will bring an innovative, eclectic menu to complement the robust beer selection. There will be a major focus on smoked meat/food items, and many of the dishes will feature Warped Wing beers as ingredients. The menu will also feature recommendations for food and beer pairings. Other libations available will be hard cider, wine as well as a limited spirits menu focused on specialty cocktails and non-alcoholic options.
Warped Wing Brewing Co. is a Dayton craft brewery inspired by Ohio’s rich history of innovation and invention. We are committed to carrying that spirit forward by brewing new proprietary beer styles along with original “warped” interpretations.
