Stone’s Throw to Columbus

In its search for a new distribution center and restaurant, Stone Brewing Co. has given a nod to Columbus. Mayor Coleman and John Lowe, CEO of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, visited the California based company to vie for the new location. Columbus’s micro and craft brewing has been on a steady rise, and adding Stone Brewing Co. would really solidify it as a brewing powerhouse.  Local Columbus brewers assured Stone that the city is “a big beer market” with plenty of additional upside to a Columbus location. Along with an already impressive brewing district and beer market, Columbus has a large base of graduates that would make an impressive work force.

Stone has some very specific requirements, such as enough room for both a brewery and restaurant within a mile of a major freeway, but is very eager to open an eastern location. Stone is currently the 10th largest craft brewer in the US, and is set to expand.  This would mean a lot of money and jobs for Columbus if it indeed pushes ahead, and perhaps even bring in tourism from beer lovers. Major brewers like Anheuser-Busch, and even smaller ones like Columbus Brewing Co., show the beer market is here and thriving. Stone is maintaining discretion, however, many Columbus locals are adamant about adding another craft brewery here in the city.
