OUR STORY

 

Dayton’s First Local Brewery In 50 Years

  • IN 2010,

    The Dayton Beer Company was founded by Owner and Brew Master Peter Hilgeman. Since 2012, when the doors opened to the Kettering Tap Room & Brewery, the first locally owned and operated brewery in Dayton in 50 years, we have grown from a one bbl Pilot Brewery to a 15BBL Production Brewery in less than three years. We don’t believe in shortcuts when we make our beer, which is evident as soon as you taste it. This commitment to quality ensures that our consumers enjoy the freshest and most flavorful handcrafted beers possible.

  • COMMITTED TO HELPING OUR HOMETOWN

    Giving back to the community is essential to our core beliefs and we strive to better the city in any way we can. Through hard work and commitment to excellence,we have been fortunate in just three years of business to have won numerous awards and earned recognition both on the local and national level.

    As we continue to grow so will Dayton.
