Delaware County now has a blended brewery and winery trail.

Destination Delaware County launched the Vine & Bine Trail, which showcases 10 stops, last month.

"We know that the craft beer and craft wine industries have really boomed in Ohio over the last several years," said Joan Ayscue, a staff member at Destination Delaware County who set up the trail.

Unlike many other established brew paths which involve passports, stamps and prizes, the inaugural Vine & Bine Trail is a brochure encouraging people to visit the breweries and wineries within the county at their own pace. But it may eventually grow into a passport program.

The Vine & Bine Trail showcases the following breweries and wineries:

• Blend of Seven Winery

• Old Dog Alehouse & Brewery

• Ill Mannered Brewing Co.

• Nocterra Brewing Co.

• Oak & Brazen Wine Co.

• Olentangy River Brewing Co.

• Powell Village Winery

• Restoration Brew Worx

• Soine Vineyards Winery

• Staas Brewing Co.

The brochures are available at the participating locations.

Frank Barickman, the founder and brewer at Restoration, said the trail is going well and he's seen an increase in new customers.

"I even learned of a winery in our county that I did not know about," he said. "I am happy with the attention it's bringing Delaware County. Destination Delaware has done a good job of spreading the word to support our wineries and breweries. I think all of us appreciate that."

Barickman enjoys the fact that the trail consists of both breweries and wineries, offering customers an alternative to a wine-only or beer-only trail.

Vine & Bine is one of a few blended alcohol trails in Ohio. Richland County offers the Wine & Ale Trail, while there's the Darke County Whiskey, Wine & Ale Trail in western Ohio.

Barickman said he would like to see the Delaware County trail grow and become a passport program with a prize for visiting all the stops.

"For now though, it's great and we appreciate anyone who supports us and/or wants to put us in a brochure," he said.
