Brew Mastered

Happy Thursday friends! This week flew by on me, and somehow it’s Thursday again and I owe you guys a blog post. I recently had extended family in town and as I was giving a tour, they asked, “Well how does John know what to make?” and I thought maybe other people would be curious about John’s brewing process. The first step is deciding what to make. Many people ask if John specializes in a particular style, and the answer he gives is that he “brews what he likes to drink, which is everything.” I think because of John’s engineering […]

A Month of Thanks

Hey friends! Happy pre-Friday to all of you! Somehow we’ve made it to November and I can’t believe how fast it’s all flying by. We’ve got a really exciting month ahead, and since it’s the month of Thanksgiving, we put a lot of effort into finding great community organizations to give back to this month in our Trek Together nights. As such, we’ve got a full month of awesomeness. Our Trek Together program is the easiest way to give back to the community. All you need to do is come in and drink some beer. That’s it. Trek donates $1 […]

Trek Beer and Halloween Candy

Happy Halloween friends! As most of you know, John and I have two little boys who have pretty much been vibrating with excitement in anticipation of today. Halloween is the absolute peak of awesomeness in the mind of a young kid. They get to dress up in superhero costumes, go knock on the doors of the people they are never allowed to bother, AND they get candy? It’s no wonder that it’s the best. Tonight, after John and I put our little superheroes to bed, we’ll do what most parents of small children do… go through their candy and take […]

This Weekend at Trek

Hey all! Happy Thursday! Remember last week how I said I felt like things were just speeding up all the time? Well guess what – we’ve got a FULL weekend ahead of us, and it starts TONIGHT. Tonight we’ve got Trek Together for Pilsners for Polio. Rotary international has been working hard to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. Rotary is a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, and they have reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent.  So far, Rotary has contributed more than $1.8 billion dollars toward eradicating the disease worldwide. While we don’t have a […]

First Anniversary Party!!!

Hey guys! Happy Thursday!!! Geesh it’s been an exciting month… so much going on, and I feel like we’re speeding up. John and I have a meeting every Monday and the recent focus has been discussing our first anniversary party! Full disclosure, it’s been a little more than a year since we’ve opened. Since we had the LONGEST soft open in the world, it’s hard to start from that time. We’re counting from our official grand open, last Black Friday. We plan to have a Black Friday party every year because honestly, it’s a great day to come out and […]

What’s NEW at Trek

Hi Guys! Happy Thursday!!! The weather has finally decided to cooperate with the calendar and I think it’s finally Fall now. Changes in weather always make me think of new and exciting things, a fresh start for a new season. We’ve also got so many NEW and fresh things happening at Trek that I want to take a moment to catch you up on everything. We’ve got two new brews on tap and they are both AWESOME. SMaSH: Hunger is a New Zealand Pale Ale. This hazy beer is brewed with Maris Otter malt and Pacifica hops from New Zealand. […]

Third Place Evolution

Okay guys, so it’s one of those weeks where I’ve got no clear direction on where to take the blog. I feel like if you read this blog, you’re familiar with my honesty, and we’re now at a point where I can tell you that sometimes I know EXACTLY what I’m going to say and the blog pretty much writes itself, and sometimes (like tonight) I have to rattle the idea around in my brain for awhile before it comes out in the blog. John and I have been reading the news lately and it seems that there are stores […]

Special Event Room

Hey guys! Happy Happy Thursday! Though we’re just now getting a little bit of a break in the heat, it’s suddenly almost October. Before we know it, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here. As we inch closer to the holiday season we wanted to spend a quick moment highlighting our special events room. One of the things that drew us to the property at 1486 Granville Rd was the fact that it had an amazing room that we could designate as a room for special events. There aren’t a whole lot of venues in our corner of the world that […]


Do you ever have those moments where you stop and think, “How the hell am I qualified to do this?” The first time I can remember this happening to John and I is when we got into the car to leave the hospital with our oldest… and I can vividly remember thinking, “We have NO IDEA what we’re doing, why are they letting us leave with a tiny human that we have to keep alive?” As many of you know, parenting has many of these such moments…and (I can now tell you with certainty), so does owning a business. In […]

Football at Trek

Hey friends! Happy happy Thursday! Although the weather hasn’t completely cooperated yet, fall is upon us. For most of us, that means getting back into weekly routines and schedules and finding ways to sneak in some good R&R. Most importantly (to John at least) it also means football is back. If you haven’t heard yet, we’re doing a Football Food Drive at Trek. Every single Buckeyes game this season, we’re collecting canned food for the Licking County Food Pantry Network. The Licking County FPN has lost a lot of funding this year due to a major corporate sponsor’s restructuring. At […]
