The number of proposed breweries in Ohio and nationwide continues to expand. So far, there are at least 10 breweries interested in opening in Ohio later this year or next year. There's Black Squirrel in Kent, Toxic Brew in Dayton, Bottle House in Cleveland Heights, Vitruvian Brewing in Yellow Springs, Four String in Columbus, Bryan Brewing in Bryan, a yet-to-be-named operation in Wooster, Buckeye Lake Brewing in Buckeye Lake, Zauber Brewing in Columbus and Ali's in Findlay. As part of its mid-year craft beer report, the Brewers Association in Boulder, Colo., said there are at least 725 breweries interested in opening nationwide. "There is a growing interest in establishing new breweries," Brewers Association Director Paul Gatza said in a prepared statement. "It seems like every day we are hearing about a brewery in planning. Will they all make it? No, but many will if they produce high-quality, interesting craft beers and can get them to market through self-distribution and beer wholesalers and beer retailers."
