Carillon Brewing Company reopened last week with a new “more casual brewing experience” and new hours, Dayton History officials said.

Visitors will see changes to the brewery model, returning to a focus on the origins of beer-making and historical demonstrations, said Brady Kress, president and CEO of Dayton History.
