The brewery is planning to serve a broad range of beer styles, with a partial focus on beers that “bridge the gap” between mass-produced domestic beers and the sometimes-extreme, high-alcohol craft beers, its owners said.
“We want people to be able to come in here and have more than one beer,” Moore said.
Plans call for Crooked Handle to serve only its own beers, opening with a selection of four flagship brews, then ramping up to offer additional seasonal beers.
The success of the 11 breweries that have opened in Montgomery and Greene counties in the last four years — none has closed, and nearly all have expanded or are in the process of expanding — is an encouraging sign that the local craft-beer scene can accommodate more breweries, Moore and Pedro said. And there are no other breweries operating in Springboro or in northern Warren County.
“We believe there is plenty of room for growth,” Pedro said.
