Lock 27 Brewing locations to begin separate operations with new consumer focuses

DAYTON — Lock 27 Brewing aims to continue the growth of their brewery business and expand distribution of its award-winning craft beers across the state and further.

In this respect, each of their locations in downtown Dayton and Centerville are putting different operating models and organizational structures in place to meet the needs best suited to the business and customers in each area.

Lock 27 Brewpub – Dayton is the hub for all the business’ brewing activities and has allowed the brewery to expand on tap and in package across Dayton. To continue the path of focusing on its beer, this location will now be known as Lock 27 Brewing Taproom, continuing to provide a topnotch brewery experience. The signature beers that guests have come to know and love will be served, along with a rotating list of specialty, limited-release brews for adventurous beer enthusiasts. The brew team at Lock 27 will soon announce unique, out-of-the-box brews, as well as special collaborations and brewery experiences to create a fun and exciting atmosphere.

The Taproom will also be implementing changes over the coming months to make food service and offerings simpler and more streamlined. Guests will notice adjustments to the menu and service over time to provide guests with the best beer-centric experience possible.

“Beer is always our first priority and the core of what we do at Lock 27 Brewing,” Steve Barnhart, founder of Lock 27 Brewing, said. “This new direction of a beer-focused taproom invites everyone across the Miami Valley and further into our space to learn more about us, our beer, and why it is so important to us. Our goal is for everyone to leave with a fantastic and memorable brewery experience and continue to grow in that spirit across the state and beyond.”

Lock 27 Brewpub – Centerville holds a special place for the Lock 27 Brewing team as its first home and put the business on the map with its stellar food offerings. In recognizing that its customers love the food just as much as the beer, it was important that this location not lose what made it so beloved in the first place. As such, this location will now be known as Lock 27 Brewing Restaurant, refocusing on providing customers with exquisite, flavorful meals, expanding the cocktail menu, and offering rotating specials in addition to a lineup of Lock 27’s brews.

The Restaurant will feature weekly food specials, cocktail specials, and Burger of the Week specials, with a brand new, refreshed menu launching in the fall. All offerings will be carefully curated based on new and exciting trends in the food and dining industry. Some familiar favorite dishes may also be making appearances back on the menu or weekly special offerings.

“We’re focused on getting the Lock 27 Brewing Restaurant back to our roots in developing wonderful food and beverages for our guests,” said Jennifer Dietrich, executive GM of Lock 27 Brewing Restaurant. “We have been fortunate to work with several culinary experts over the years, so we’re taking that knowledge and creating new and original food offerings catered to the liking of our loyal guests in Centerville. We’re excited to create a new and revitalized restaurant experience that our guests can rave about.”

A separate social media account will be launched for Lock 27 Brewing Restaurant, highlighting the weekly specials, changes to the food menu, and delicious cocktail drinks.
