Latest News

Big Beer, Big Deal

Last week there was a big commotion in the Ohio Craft beer world. One of the fastest growing craft breweries in America, Platform Brewing, got bought out by AB-InBev. Okay, so what’s the big deal? Why do we care? The short answer is, lots of reasons.  When Big Beer (brands like AB-InBev, Miller Coors, etc.) makes acquisitions of craft brands, there is a disturbance in the force. Craft brewers are defined as three things: small, independent, and traditional. Small is defined as brewing less than 6 million barrels of beer a year. Independent is defined as less than 25% of the […]

Football Food Drive

I’ve told you before that one of my very favorite things about bartending at Trek is that I get to talk to everyone at the bar. I love learning different things about everyone’s lives and I love talking about what’s going on in our community. A couple of weeks ago I was talking with someone who let me know that Food Pantry Network of Licking County is going to be in need of help this year. One of the major funding sources for the food pantry has restructured their giving, and the pantry will lose a significant portion of their […]

Aug ’19 Events

Hi guys! Happy Thursday! Happy AUGUST. How is it August already? This summer has absolutely flown by. I wanted to take a quick minute and update you on our August calendar, because there are a lot of fun events happening at Trek this month. First of all, food trucks. We LOVE having the trucks at Trek. They change up our menu all the time, and they are all seriously good food. When you come in to Trek, and we’ve got a truck outside we hope you’ll consider grabbing some good eats from them!  Our food truck schedule for August is […]

Ohio Breweries Give Back

Last week I shared with you a little bit about our story. That post was a glimpse into the day to day life that our family is living as small business owners. Our family is the heart and soul of our grand adventure saga. However, there are multiple plot lines that are emerging as our Trek continues (see what I did there?), and we’re really proud to be mentioned this week in a state-wide publication for one of them. One of the biggest and most important things that John and I wanted to accomplish when we started Trek Brewing Company […]

A Good Story

I think that I may be hardwired to love a good story. Maybe it’s the way I was brought up, with a story every night before bed, sometimes (when we were extra good) two or three. Maybe it’s because reading a good story has always been my way to relax. At any rate, I’ve long been fascinated by the stories of the people I meet. I’m curious about what brings them to where they are today, and captivated by their hopes for the future. When John and I decided to turn our lives upside down and follow this dream of […]

Fireworks For Good Party Recap

Oh hey guys! I hope you’ve had an awesome week. We definitely did. The 4th of July is one of my favorite times of year, and even though its super busy, it’s always so much fun.  We had an absolute blast at our Fireworks for Good Party this year, and we wanted to just spend some time recapping that event. It was a dark and stormy day, and we started off slowly. We were just starting to get afraid that the rain was going to keep everyone away, but then, everyone showed up. And we mean everyone. The taproom and […]

What’s In Our Fermenters? June ’19

Hey guys! Happy happy Thursday! It’s been an awesome couple of weeks, and we’ve got so much to look forward to! These summertime nights have been so much fun. If you missed out on Tyy Perkins— you really missed out.  Our first live music event leaves a lot for everyone else to live up to. Tyy was incredible. We can’t wait to have him back! We are starting to book more live music events, so keep watching Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and our webpage to stay up to date with those events.  Things at Trek are slowly starting to get into […]

Upcoming Events June 2019

Oh hey guys! Happy happy Thursday! We just have so much excitement going on at Trek that I want to take a minute and talk about our amazing upcoming events! First off, TONIGHT is Trek Together for the Learning 4 Life Farm. Learning 4 Life is creating a 7- acre nonprofit farm in Johnstown, Ohio. The goal of Learning 4 Life Farm is creating a job training program for teens and young adults on the autism spectrum. They are meeting this goal with therapy alpacas, gardens and greenhouses. Come check out all the awesome work they are doing, and learn […]

Fireworks For Good Party – Year 2

Hey guys! Happy Thursday! This week I wanted to talk about an upcoming awesome event: Fireworks for Good Party – Year 2! It was my very favorite event of last year. And this year, it’s going to be way more awesome. Here’s the scoop. July 3rd you’ll want to make your way to Trek early. We’ve got the PERFECT view of the OSU-Newark fireworks from our parking lot. We’re partnering with The Licking County Family YMCA’s Healthy Kids Network program for this year’s event. The LCFYMCA HKN sends home a backpack full of food every weekend during the school year […]

Trek Together: For Patrick

Hey Friends! It’s Thursday again, and today’s blog post is a short and sweet call to action. As I’m sure most of you have heard by now, Patrick Gangwer passed away on Monday. The news is shocking and horrific. I won’t pretend that John and I knew him well… we didn’t. We met only a handful of times. But, I will tell you that in the few interactions that we had with him, Pat was memorable. He was kind and funny, and he had an almost magnetic personality. He was a guy you wanted to spend time with. Both John […]
