West Side Brewing to open in April
WILDER, Ky. — Taking a 1930’s building and combining it with owners who are passionate about brewing great beer are the keys to success for another Furlong-built beer brewing project, this time in Cincinnati’s west side. The 12,000-s.f. West Side Brewing will be opening on in April, 2017.
Formerly the Wullenweber Motors Company building in Cincinnati’s west side, the building is undergoing a $1.3 million renovation and will soon become a vibrant, community destination with a wide variety of beer brewed onsite, offering something for everyone’s palate.
West Side Brewing owner Joe Mumper described the new project: “A gathering place for the community, offering a minimum of 12 beers that will suit everyone’s tastes.” Mumper hopes their location in the heart of Westwood will become part of the fabric of the neighborhood, continuing the great Cincinnati tradition of locally-crafted beer.
“We are excited to repurpose an older building, bringing to it new life and a dynamic business to the Cincinnati community,” said Furlong CEO Jude Hehman. “We look forward to celebrating the opening of West Side Brewing in the spring.”
West Side Brewery owners include Joe Mumper, Brian Willett, Kurtis Remmel and Jim Remmel. The project architect is Tyler Watkins of Work Architecture & Design. Located at 3044 Harrison Avenue in Westwood, the project will include two taprooms allowing for an inside look at the beer-making process and for large and private parties to have some separate areas. Plans are to include weekly entertainment, live music, a menu of small bites and onsite food trucks. The partners are this week launching a Kickstarter campaign to help fund some of the features and to include ideas coming from the investors.
