A Collaboration Brew Pub

Lineage Brewing is a true collaboration.

It feels great to open our brewpub and finally share our unique space with the Clintonville community. Lineage was brought to life through collaboration between Compton Construction, Tim Lai ArchitecT, local artists, craftsmen, and our brewing team.

Like the Lineage brand, all the materials used to build the space have a local history.

The Lineage Brewing owners hand-built the bar top and all the table tops. Materials for these pieces came from a bowling alley in Lexington, KY. They were purchased and then hauled back to Ohio for custom finishing. You’ll notice that the community tables in the center of the bar still proudly show off the old bowling arrows.

Local Clintonville neighbor and owner of Clawhammer Designs designed and built the bar stools. The bar stools also incorporate reclaimed materials. Each one is formed from old barn beams and steel, and each retains its own unique character. You can also check out some of Clawhammer’s other works on Instagram @clawhammerdesigns.

A reclaimed array of white chairs invites guests to relax in the dining area space at Lineage. Each has its own life-story, some known and unknown. If you look closely, you will notice that several of the chairs are reclaimed from the old OSU library.

Compton worked closely to source the talent of a local Franklinton artist for the bar face. Andrew Lundberg designed and created the metal work for this area. You can also check out Andrew’s other work and artistic services at www.lundberginc.com.

Columbus Artist and Dean of the School of Arts at CCAD, Tom Gattis, designed each of our tap handles. Also using naturally reclaimed materials from a fallen ash tree, Tom etched each tap handle with the Lineage Brewing logo.

Another good friend of Lineage, Justin Hickey, created the sampler boards. He designed the boards to fit the custom taster glasses securely, ensuring safe transportation of this precious cargo to one of our dining area tables.

Illustrator and Designer at MarxVisual developed the beautiful logo that you see today, and Tonic Studios have turned this logo into comfy, wearable art.

Vibrant and artistic photography decorates our website, also thanks to good friends at Ryan Benyi Photography and Jessica Miller Photography.

We also thank all the skilled contractors for their hard work in bringing the Lineage Brewing space to life. They helped to shape our space into a unique brewpub in the Clintonville community for our customers to enjoy. Last but certainly not least, thank you to all our friends and family who volunteered during our renovation. Our friends and family helped to do everything from washing windows to sanding tables and spreading the word about our grand opening. 

We love to see the creativity of Columbus talent shine through in our space, and it really gives Lineage its own unique identity. And we hope it feels like a place that beer drinkers across Columbus can call their own, too.
