DEERFIELD TWP/MASON, Ohio, October 7, 2017 - Sonder Brewing celebrated the groundbreaking of their first production facility and taproom. The 15,200-square-foot, single-story building, which is being constructed by Dennis, Inc. and Versatile Construction, will hold a 30 barrel brew house with American-made equipment, 2,770-square-feet of taproom space, and a kitchen. The 6.47 acre site will also allow Sonder to scale up production on the current property if needed.
In addition, the $5.5M project will include the development of 5,000-square-feet of outdoor patio and additional open lawn space. “Part of the excitement about our project is that not only do we want to brew high-quality craft beer, but we want to be a family-friendly destination for our community,” says Justin Neff, owner and CEO of Sonder Brewing. “As a start-up, we knew we had an unusual vision for our project,” says Neff, “Building from the ground up, in the suburbs, is not the norm for craft breweries, but we feel like it is a great fit for the ingenuity and tourism of the Mason area.”
Sonder plans on having a few beers available year round, and will have several seasonal options. They also plan to offer sour and barrel aged beers. Sonder beer will prioritize quality and consistency while offering a wide variety of styles to appease all craft beer drinkers.
