Craig O’Herron is a black-belt martial artist who recently opened his craft beer business, Sideswipe Brewing, at 2419 Scioto Harper Drive, just west of Franklinton. It is a 1,500 square-foot nanobrewery which produces 150 gallons of premium brew at a time on a double-batch system.
The brewery will initially produce 22-oz. bottles of beer — including an IPA, saison and smoked stout — and offer tasting room hours as well as homebrew classes. The three initial brews are: the Elegant Hoodlum Smoke Stout, the Fisticuffs IPA and the Coop Looter Saison. More info: sideswipebrewing.com.
