The Toxic Brew Company is a new brewpub coming to downtown Dayton's Oregon District. We will be brewing and serving our beer on premise at 431 E. Fifth St. Dayton, OH, in the middle of the District, across from the Tumbleweed, and beside Ned Peppers. The TBC (Toxic Brew Company) will be the first brewery in over 50 years to produce beer in downtown Dayton, OH.
We are excited to begin sharing Toxic Brew Company beer with Dayton, and contributing to the local craft beer community.
We focus on producing craft beers drawing from a wide range of inspirations. We enjoy high gravity beers, and with a name like “Toxic Brew” how could you not love the high alcohol creations that age like wine, not turn stale after a few months. Don’t get us wrong, we produce and personally enjoy a wide range of alcohol content, color, hoppiness, and maltiness in our beer; we try to cover the alcohol, color, bitterness spectrum. We enjoy brewing and sharing our beer and the craft with others. TBC enjoys experimenting so don’t expect the exact same beers on tap every day. With our small 7bbl system and love for casks, we try to brew more variety than quantity. Our brewpub at 431 E. 5th Street will be an inviting location, in Dayton's Historic Oregon Arts District, where you can enjoy a wide selection of beers in a comfortable setting.
We often get asked how we came up with our name “Toxic Brew” because to some it seems like a terrible idea, and to some genius. So often in fact that we had to dedicate a page on the matter. Short version is that is stems from the fact that ethanol is listed as Toxic and we used to make different tinctures, some more bitter than others. Our logo is our own version of the universal “Toxic” symbol of the skull and cross bones found on warning labels. If you would like to know more, check out the full article here.
Currently the Toxic Brew Company beer will not be available to the public until we complete production on our new brewery and pub. We plan to start brewing in Dayton in May of 2012, and are proud of our place in the history of Dayton brewing which began in the Early 1800’s and before TBC, had no breweries for over 50 years. if you want to read more about Dayton’s first microbrewery and the sad day the doors closed at the Dayton Breweries Corporation in 1961, check out our article and the links to more information.
