The Dayton Beer Company was founded by Owner and Brew Master Peter Hilgeman. Since 2012, when the doors opened to the Kettering Tap Room & Brewery, the first locally owned and operated brewery in Dayton in 50 years, it has grown from a one bbl Pilot Brewery to a 15BBL Production Brewery in less than three years.
We don’t believe in shortcuts when we make our beer, which is evident as soon as you taste it. This commitment to quality ensures that our consumers enjoy the freshest and most flavorful handcrafted beers possible.
Just steps away from Day Air Ballpark, the award-winning Dayton Beer Company beers are always on tap at both our main bar, which features 36 Ohio craft taps, and the new outside bar. We love to showcase the quality beer that is produced throughout the state of Ohio, from large and well-known breweries to small batch operations just beginning. That’s why we round out our 36 taps with a carefully curated, constantly changing selection of guest taps that is sure to please any palate.
The Dayton Beer Company’s Madison Room is a popular venue to host a variety of private events, ranging from rehearsal dinners to corporate happy hours. This space has a maximum seating capacity of 75 people, with a variety options to create a space that will suit your event needs. Giving back to the community is essential to our core beliefs and we strive to better the city in any way we can. Through hard work and commitment to excellence, we have been fortunate in just three years of business to have won numerous awards and earned recognition both on the local and national level
