A hobby turned into quite a business opportunity for five friends who own Findlay Brewing Company. Josh Heitkamp, Aaron Osborne, Alex Treece, Steve Treece and Susan Treece all shared an interest in beer when they began with a home brewing kit ten years ago. In 2013 the friends obtained a license to sell their beer, which is now on tap at many local businesses including Logan’s Irish Pub and Gilligs Winery. Findlay Brewing Company, now located at 227 ½ North Main St., offers growler fill-ups on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons. In early 2017, Findlay Brewing Company will be moving to a new downtown location while expanding its offerings.
“We have a great new location which allows us to add a full bar, a limited menu of foods that pair well with beer, an outdoor beer garden and live music,” explains Josh Heitkamp, co-owner. The new location at 213 East Crawford St. will offer plenty of space and an outdoor seating area with live music on the weekends.
