Proud to be Small Independent Craft Beer

It’s America, we know people like to celebrate BIG, but we want to take some time to celebrate SMALL independent craft beer. We are proud to be one of the small businesses locally owned by the people and faces you see working there every day. We call that being Indy Craft Beer.Lineage Brewing Independent Craft Beer

At Lineage Brewing, we are a team of 13 – no suits, no big investors. Our close knit Lineage team is like family. We are just 4 owners and we all live, work, and play in our Clintonville neighborhood. As owners of a small brewery in Columbus, OH, we also brew every batch of beer that hits your lips. This is our love and our craft. Staying small means we get to continue to do what we love and grow at our own pace.

Independent craft beer owners of Lineage Brewing

Lineage Brewing Owners

We are a 7 BBL brewpub, which means we can brew a lot of styles, the beer is always fresh, and we can see our customers’ reactions across the bar. People ask all the time, “Will you ever package”? Someday we might, but when the time is right.

We make all our food from scratch. We use fresh ingredients and develop all recipes with the same heart and soul that we put into our beer. We make everything to order and slow-baked to deliver unique comfort food that pairs well with beer.

Why are we so proud to be small and independent craft beer?

We love being involved in our community and neighborhood.

We know your name and you know ours.

We make what we are passionate about and what our customers want.

We like change. Change, for us, happens constantly. We don’t ask permission, we just make it happen.

Everyone has a voice. All team members provide input into what we do and how we do it every day.

We grow at our own pace and in ways that make us stronger.

There is a lot of BIG craft beer out there. Let’s celebrate SMALL beer too. Celebrate Indy Craft at Independent’s Day Festival this weekend, and as you do so, feel good that you are supporting your own local culture, friends, artists, craftsmen, neighbors, and city.

Independently Owned.

Carefully Crafted.

…and staying Small and Beautiful since 2015

Lineage Brewing is 1 Year Old!

A Year in Review

It is hard to believe that it’s been a whole year already for our brewery. The year flew by so fast for us. We’ve put it all out there and are thrilled that Columbus has had such a thirst for more. In total, Lineage Brewery has produced 37 different beer styles this year, not to mention some fun casks every Thursday.

Where did we start?

With 8 taps, 2 beer engines, 4 fermenters, and one brewer.

Where are we now?

14 taps, 2 beer engines, 5 fermenters (plus 1 more on its way), a brewer and assistant brewer.

We’ve been excited to bring a larger food menu and brunch hours to the brewery in 2016 and we plan to bring even more delicious beers to the table as well.

Top 5 Reasons we are THANKFUL for Clintonville

Clintonville: gem of Columbus, OH

Clintonville: gem of Columbus, OH

We LOVE Clintonville! This Thanksgiving, we are so thankful for the people, places, history, kindness, and charm that Clintonville brings to its inhabitants and neighbors. We are also thankful that Lineage Brewing can share in the local tradition by putting down roots in the heart of this community. Here’s our list of the top 5 reasons we are thankful for Clintonville, Ohio: 

  1. Homemade, homegrown, and local is what we live for.
  2. Quiet city living with strong community ties.
  3. Backyard brewing and gardening is where we got our start.
  4. Parks, trails, and trees remind us to stop and smell the roses and enjoy life.
  5. Big hearts and minds that bring together many talents in order to give back to others.

We send many thanks out to our Clintonville friends, family, and neighbors who have supported us through many obstacles. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our roots in this thriving community that we are proud to call home. Today is a reminder not to take for granted where your life has taken you, who you are able to share it with, and how you can continue to give back to others.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Lineage!
