Canning!

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! I hope that you are all well!  A friend of mine recently talked to me about micro-blogging, and I’m going to give it a try today. This update will be short and sweet, but it still gives me a chance to connect with you! In case you aren’t on social media, or you’ve missed our updates, we’re shouting from the rooftops that we’re about to begin CANNING. Our brand new canning line arrived at Trek the first week of the year, and we finally got our cans in this week. Matt Battaglia, the artist that designed our […]

Back to the Beginning

Hey guys! This week we’ve been doing a lot of interviews with various travel writers that have come to the area. It’s awesome and exciting to tell our story and share how we built this thing. In case you’re just starting to follow us, I wanted to point you back to one of our FIRST blog posts: The Journey to Trek. Sometimes it’s good to go back to the beginning. We hope to see you from across the bar soon! Cheers friends!

Word of the year- Community

So we’ve made it to 2021. It’s a bit surreal, as there were times in the last year where I don’t think any of us thought we’d make it out alive. Nevertheless, here we are and we’re starting off the year with positivity. I recently saw a post about picking a “focus word” for the year, instead of making a resolution. This idea really resonated with me- one word seems more do-able I guess. Trek Brewing Company’s word for the year is COMMUNITY. It’s the biggest part of who we are.  The mission statement of Trek is: We believe that […]

Happy Holidays

Hi friends! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We are thrilled to have our doors reopen again. As many of you know, we had staff test positive for COVID-19 and we were closed for the week of Thanksgiving. We unfortunately had to miss our anniversary party, as well as small business Saturday and small brewery Sunday. This was definitely not the way that we wanted to start the holiday season, but we are ready to enjoy what is left of this crazy year with all of you. First, we’d like to encourage you to stay up to date […]

Second Anniversary Party!

Hey guys! It’s been a long time since I wrote. Again. I don’t even have a good apology to give you except that life this year is just insanity. There is both nothing and everything happening AT THE SAME TIME and I really struggle with words to write it all down. But, something really incredible is about to happen. We’re going to hit our TWO YEAR anniversary. We’ve put off advertising for several reasons— we weren’t sure that our doors were going to be allowed to be open, and we didn’t want to draw a huge crowd (which sounds so […]

Phoenix and Starfish

If 2020 has taught me anything, it’s that we need to look for small wins. Those little sparks of light make an unbelievable difference in the madness that is this entire year. It’s no secret that this year has been incredibly hard on small businesses. We’re lucky to have the Ohio Craft Brewers Association behind us, looking for ways to support our local craft community. One of these opportunities is coming up this next week. Ohio Pint Day.  Trek Brewing Company is joining more than 100 others across the state to participate in Ohio Pint Day, a fundraiser for the […]

Ohio State Football at Trek 2020!

In the year 2020, absolutely not a single thing is normal. But, perhaps one of the things that has been SO noticeably lacking is Ohio State football. We are so incredibly glad to hear that some semblance of routine is returning to Saturdays. And, we’re hoping that you’ll help us make this the best year yet. Last year we launched the Football Food Drive. We invited you to Be a Fan and Bring a Can. It was a great program last year, and we’d like to reinstate it for this coming year, where it feels more important to be a […]

GABF

So last week I posted a pretty adorable photo of Charlie and John from six years ago. Charlie was about 5 months old, and we traveled from Seattle to Denver for the Great American Beer Festival.  Yes, even then, we were those people, the ones that have their baby at a beer festival.  John had been homebrewing for a few years at that point, and we were really excited to experience the largest beer festival in the USA. When we got to the Colorado Convention Center we were immediately struck by the enormity of this festival. There were hundreds of […]

A long time

So, it’s been a REALLY long time. And I’m so sorry. Every week I sit down to write and I think, well, there really isn’t a whole lot to talk about. It’s not that there isn’t a lot going on…. And when I really stop to think about it I realize how much we really still are doing. The taproom is open from Wednesday through Sunday now. We’re serving lunch starting at 11am and we go through the evening, ending at 9pm. Bryon is incredible in the kitchen, so incredible that we’ve had to add another cook. Jarron helps out […]

Taproom Happenings!

Hey guys! Today’s blog is going to be short and sweet! I just wanted to drop a line and let you know what all is happening at the taproom. We’ve updated our hours and we’re now open 11 am to 9 pm Wednesday through Sunday. This means that you can come grab a Trek burger for lunch and a crowler for later (or stay and have a pint with your lunch, we promise we won’t tell!). In addition to the taproom being open during those times, we’re also open for To-Go orders. You can call the brewery directly for those, […]
