Neil House Brewery in Columbus is upgrading its brewing equipment and plans to expand its distribution area. The small production brewery – which also serves as a homebrew shop -- has been operating with three SABCO Brew-Magic systems since it started making beer and its signature cranberry cider. But it’s now upgrading to a 3 ½-barrel brew system and adding new bottling equipment. “Thus far, the beers and the cider have been doing well,” co-owner and brewer Patrick Kelleher said. “We’ve been seeing increased demand and we’ve got some new beers. It’s time for us to come out with a bigger system.” Neil House can be found in the Columbus area and Athens now. But thanks to the new brewing and bottling equipment, there are plans to expand into the Cleveland market and to release his beer in 12-ounce six-packs, as opposed to the 22-ounce bombers now available. Kelleher also said he plans to open a tasting room.
