Head southeast of Columbus to check out the breweries from just outside of Columbus through Lancaster, to Hocking Hills with The Route 33 Brew Trail!
Pick up a trail guide at the Fairfield County Visitor’s Bureau or one of the participating breweries, and make a purchase at a listed brewery to get a stamp. Collect stamps from all 7 Brew Trail breweries to receive an Anchor Hocking Route 33 Brew Trail pint glass when you complete the trail.
The trail features well-established breweries such as RockMill Brewery, Combustion, BrewDog DogTap, and more – with scenery and settings you can only find outside of the city. The breweries inhabit locations including rural horse farm, a restored dairy, a neighborhood pub, a railroad substation, industrial warehouses, and a cozy taproom, and more.
At the end of your completed trail, bring your passport to the Visit Fairfield County Visitor Center in downtown Lancaster (205 W. Main Street), or Double Edge Brewing Company (158 West Chestnut St.) to redeem for your pint glass.
The trail has grown with the addition of Outerbelt Brewing in Carroll, Ohio, opening on June 15, and the launch of Volume 2 of the Brew Trail. Since Volume 1 of the trail launched last year, 325 participants have already completed the trail!
