Lisbon Brewery to grow on lot right next to existing Taproom
Lisbon, OH – Numbers Brewing Company of Lisbon, Ohio, in Columbiana County, has announced a major expansion. The nearly 3 year old brewery broke ground today on a 2,000 square foot Brewhouse that will enable them to significantly increase production and potentially expand their distribution footprint. The brewery currently distributes locally throughout the Mahoning Valley into a handful of bars and restaurants, and to the south as far as East Liverpool and Calcutta.
Randy Schneider, Marketing and Promotions Director for Numbers, said they currently brew on a 2 1/2 barrel Psycho Brew system. They have purchased a 15bbl Deutsch Brewing (of Charlotte, North Carolina) system.
“The new Brewhouse is literally 3 feet away from the existing Taproom,” Schneider said. “We also have plans to expand the existing Taproom when the new Brewhouse is completed in January.”
Columbiana County is not generally what one would refer to as a hotbed of craft beer culture, but that is slowly changing. Birdfish Brewing Company opened in Columbiana in 2015, followed by Numbers, which will celebrate its third year in January. At least one other (Grudge Brewing) is in the planning stages, also in Columbiana. The Winery at Pine Lake in Columbiana also has a pending application to be able to brew.
Numbers itself is expanding fast. They added a bigger kitchen and an outdoor patio earlier this year, and also renovated their Taproom. They currently have sixteen taps, which usually have 12-13 of their own beers, and 3-4 guest taps at any given time. They are currently open Wednesday through Saturday.
