Our History

our history

Rooted in History

We founded Lineage Brewing® with a simple purpose: to honor the history of our Clintonville neighborhood and set down local roots in a place we love. Lineage’s owners are all long-time residents and active members of the Clintonville community. As a result, Lineage Brewing is a place where our friends and neighbors can gather and relax while sharing our love of beer.

Homebrew to Brewpub

Lineage is also a culmination of years of experimentation and creativity, which all started with homebrewing. Our brewers developed and tested our unique brewing styles and recipes over the years by homebrewing out of our garages and also growing our own hops. As a result, we have honed our skills and now serve up with the best craft beer in Columbus. We offer an ever-changing variety of styles in our brewpub and we are always on the quest for the perfect pint. We hope you enjoy the explorative and hands-on approach to brewing that Lineage brings to the Columbus beer scene and to our Clintonville neighborhood.

The Lineage Brew Pub

Our space also has its own history. Formerly a car wash, it is now a brightly lit and modern space with a casual and conversational atmosphere. It is also a place for making connections among friends, food, and also among unique and adventurous beer styles. Also, when the weather is nice, the patio is open and we open the garage doors to bring the outdoors inside for you to enjoy.

Our brewhouse and brewmaster’s home away from home consists of a 7BBL boil kettle, as well as a custom mashtun and 6 7BBL fermenters. You can stop by and check out our brewhouse, which is located right next door to our brewpub and patio. You can also sign up for one of our brewing classes with brewmaster and owner, Mike Byrne.

The Lineage Food

We also honor local roots by making our food to-order with fresh seasonal ingredients. Since we believe in making everything from scratch, nothing is ever frozen or deep-fried in the Lineage Brewing kitchen. From our hand pies to our weekend brunch items, each dish is home- and hand-made. Because we make all food from fresh ingredients, our menu changes seasonally. As a result, you can enjoy the freshest flavors and pair your meal with one of our seasonal craft beers. You can also check out the latest menu to see what we’re serving today.
