Groundbreaking planned for new brew pub in Lewisburg, Ohio

LEWISBURG, Ohio – Work will soon begin on a long-awaited new brew pub slated for Preble County known as Lost Railroad Brewhaus. Owners and officials will break ground on the $2.4M project on August 18, 2021 at 11am.

Lost Railroad Brewhaus will bring to life a vision held by father-son team Richard and Adam Ewing, who were once casual brewers dreaming of someday opening their own brew pub.

“We visited some brew pubs and thought, ‘We can do this,’ so we started the journey,” said Richard Ewing.

Tapping into the German heritage held by Richard Ewing’s wife, the menu at Lost Railroad Brewhaus will have an ‘authentic in every way’ German flair, with a family-friendly atmosphere where guests can enjoy a meal with their favorite beverage.

Speaking of the beer, it will also be German-inspired. Or as the younger Ewing put it, the beer will be “German the American way;” German beers brewed with an American spin. Lost Railroad Brewhaus is sure to offer something for all beer lovers to enjoy.

“We’re thrilled to support the vision of these entrepreneurs who truly took their passion and ran with it. Adam and Richard have been working on this project for a long time, and it’s exciting to see it come to fruition,” said Holly Allen, vice president of marketing & communication, Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce. “Lost Railroad Brewhaus will be an asset to Lewisburg, and the Dayton region as a whole.”

The 10,000 square feet brewery will have unique touches, such as wooden tables hand-made by the owners, and a large outdoor covered patio where customers can soak up good weather days. Plans call for approximately half of the square footage will be used for service, and the rest to be used for beer production.
