The BottleHouse Brewery in Cleveland Heights planned to be a brew-on-premise operation when it first opened earlier this year – along with producing its own beers and serving as a neighborhood bar. But that plan has changed.
The brewery is so busy keeping up with demand for its own beers – it’s had as many as 10 BottleHouse beers on tap at any given time -- that it hasn’t had the capacity to allow customers to come in and brew their own. That’s a positive problem to have so the brew-on-premise aspect of the business is on hold, co-owner Brian Benchek said.
“We’re incredibly happy,” he said. “We’re content doing what we’re doing.”
BottleHouse may revisit the brew-on-premise side of the business down the road, but for now it’s on the back burner, Benchek said.
