Catawba Island Brewing Co., a new production brewery in Northwest Ohio, will open its tasting room Friday, according to its Facebook page. There will be four beers available: a tripel, double India pale ale, Scottish ale and wit, co-owner Shad Gunderson told me earlier this week.



Catawba Island will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. The hours will be expanded later.



The brewery, which has a 10-barrel brewhouse, is on the mainland between Catawba and Port Clinton. Catawba Island plans to distribute its beers to area bars and restaurants.
