Hasseman Brewing’s opening just days away

| August 17, 2017

COSHOCTON – The much-anticipated opening of Hasseman Brewing will be Friday, Aug. 25 at 5 p.m. on Sixth Street. After almost a year of planning, acquiring state and federal licensing, renovation and decorating, and creating the perfect beers on tap, the brewery is finally ready to open to the public. Walking into Hasseman Brewing is like walking into a piece of Coshocton’s industrial history. Tables are constructed with pipe from McWane Ductile, a lounge area by the bar features a rustic railroad cart from RockTenn, and in the corner sits a weathered desk from the Beachy Company.

“We think that in Coshocton, we tend to wallow in negativity,” said owner Kirby Hasseman. “We want to remind people to be proud of Coshocton.”

Each night, there will be four to seven beers on tap and each beer is named after a piece of Coshocton’s history. Beers include the 1811 Ale, Mad Marshall IPA, Black Bear Stout, Whitewoman’s Blonde, Mary Stockum’s Witches Brew, Irish Red Ale, and the Sixth Street Peach. Let the staff know which beer on the market you enjoy and they can recommend one of their craft beers that should satisfy your taste buds.

“We want to be innovative and come up with new beers on a regular basis,” said Hasseman. “I saw the craft beer industry exploding. I’d written a business plan probably seven years ago. It was just one of those things I wanted to do for a long time.”

Hasseman has two friends who have partnered with him to make this endeavor a reality.

“I was very specific of who I wanted as partners,” he said. “I think they both bring different strengths to the business.”

In October of last year, Hasseman purchased the equipment for the brewery and after many hurdles and a lot of time and waiting, Hasseman Brewing can finally open for business.

“I’m excited for a couple of things,” said Hasseman. “We are starting to see a resurgence of entrepreneurship in Coshocton, if you know where to look. Also, this is a different entertainment totally unique to Coshocton County. We’ve also got another brewery coming in, and we’re excited about that. We’ve got a great group of wineries that want to partner with us, which is great. Then there’s also a distillery coming in.”

Although the brewery itself will not be serving food, there will be a food truck outside of the brewery each weekend. On Aug. 25, the Three Lil Piggies BBQ will be available.

Hasseman Brewing will be open Fridays and Saturdays to start with from 5 – 9 p.m. on Friday and noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday. More information can be found on their website, www.hassemanbrewing.com or find them on Facebook.
