Popular brewery opens Newark taproom and barrel-aging space

Columbus residents are likely familiar with the offerings from Homestead Beer Co., as the largest brewery in Licking County can be found in nearly every major grocery store and bottle shop in the greater Columbus area.

And now that the Heath, Ohio-based beer makers have opened their most recent taproom in Newark, it’s even easier for us to stop in and grab a pint in person.


Last Friday, Aug. 27, Homestead held a grand opening for its brand-new location—Homestead Beer Company Public House and Barrel Room—inside Newark’s Cherry Valley Hotel, located at 2319 Cherry Valley Rd. SE.

The Brewery also has a taproom in the city of Heath, and another in Delaware.

The new spot will offer Homestead’s lineup of flagship beers like Tenpenny Amber Ale and Snake Oil Pale Ale, in addition to several new brews specific to their Newark location. They’ll also be serving ciders, seltzers, cocktails, and boozy slushies.

As its name suggests, the new taproom is also home to an on-site space for barrel-aging, where beers like their massive Bison, an imperial stout, age on wood. Other than the great beer it yields, their barrel room doubles as a seating area, meaning guests can drink next to an entire wall-ful of beautiful oak.
