Lorain County's first onsite craft brewery/distributor and taproom. Creating drinkable craft beer with a beer garden, dog friendly, family environment.
“What do you want to do with your life?” Answer: “ I just want to brew beer!” That was the conversation had between founders Tom Wagner and Jerome Moore in March of 2013. The concept of Railroad Brewing Company was born. Flagship brews like Red Caboose and Coal Train Stout were created, and the idea of bringing a craft brewery to Lorain County, using influences from the Colorado brewery scene began!
After years of research and planning, it wasn’t until March of 2015 that Tom and Jerome welcomed Dave Lengyel to the team to put the plan in full motion. It is Dave’s marketing background as well as his tireless work ethic that allowed the brewery dream to become a reality. In the summer of 2016 our team added Tom Culler, from the hand-crafted tables in the brewery to the day to day operations, Tom’s influence will be evident.
In March of 2016 Railroad signed a deal to occupy 1010 Center Rd in Avon, OH and begin brewery operations. The 4000 square foot building will house our 10 barrel SysTech Stainless Works system and Taproom. Come and enjoy one of our fresh brews or one of our friends’ guest beers. Enjoy food from local food trucks or catering from nearby restaurants. Pet and kid friendly, we hope to offer an atmosphere that is welcoming to everyone.
