Deerfield Township and Sonder Brewing are celebrating the brewery's grand opening on Saturday at 10 a.m.

A ribbon cutting for the event will be held shortly before opening, at 9:30 a.m.

“We are very excited to see Sonder open for business,” Deerfield Township Economic Development Director Jim Flick said. “The craft brewery industry has been thriving over the years and Sonder will put Deerfield on the map as a destination for people throughout the region.”

The Sonder Brewing facility is located at 8584 Duke Boulevard.

The $6.5 million, 15,200 square-foot building will hold a 30-barrel brewhouse. It has a 2,000 square-foot taproom, a spacious bar area, an outdoor patio area and a large family-friendly lawn area.

BrewRiver Gastropub will even offer food.

“We would have never gotten to this point with countless hours of effort and hard work by this amazing team,” Sonder's President Justin Neff said. “We can’t wait to share our beers and beautiful facility with the public and we hope the Sonder story becomes part of the unique story of our community.”

In a previous interview with The Enquirer, the founding team of Jennifer Meissner, Justin Neff and Daniel Schmerr said they envision a place both where corporate employees will spend their happy hours and where families and friends will gather and linger.

The brewery will remain open on Saturday until midnight.

Normal operating hours are Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to midnight; and Sunday 10 a.m. to 9 a.m.
