Pour a pint, grab a growler. Dayton is “hopping” with a wide variety of new breweries and taphouses. While Dayton has a 200-year history with microbreweries thanks to Col. George Newcom, it has seen a resurgence in the last couple of years with most areas of the Miami Valley housing their own brewery (or a few).
Dayton Beer Company has paved the way for Dayton to reclaim its spot on beer lover’s lists. They were the first to open their doors in the Miami Valley. Shortly after, Toxic Brewing Company set up shop and began the economic boost to downtown that many are calling the Brewery District. The Dayton area is now home to 10 wildly popular local breweries.
- Warped Wing Brewing Company
- Toxic Brew Company
- 5th St, Brew Pub
- Carillon Brewing Company
- The Dayton Beer Company
- Eudora Brewing Company
- The Hairless Hare Brewery
- Lucky Star Brewery
- Star City Brewing Company
- Lock 27 Brewing
If you’d like to check out some of the breweries, but don’t know where to start, just hop on the bus! There are several local companies offering Brew Tours. They typically stop at 3 to 4 breweries and provide samples at each one.
