A new brewery is coming to Lewis Center next year, when Standardized Brewing will open at 5920 Evans Farm Dr, in the Evans Farm community, according to a recent Columbus Business First article. In addition to serving beer, the brewery will also offer coffee along with a reliable wi-fi connection, ample seating and a breakout room, making it an enticing place for remote employees to spend their workday.
What Now Columbus spoke with Standardized Brewing co-owner Mark Robinson about the space and what guests can expect from the forthcoming brewery and coffee shop. With just over 4,000 square feet, and about 1,000 square feet dedicated to brewing operations, the space will include an outdoor patio, along with the breakout room that will seat 24.
In total, the establishment will have seating for around 170 people between indoor and outdoor seating areas, with a mix of tables, leather couches and bar seating, offering a place for friends, families, and of course beer and coffee enthusiasts, to gather over a pint or a cup.
“Our goal is to provide coffee, beer and community,” Robinson said.
The brewery is a partnership between five owners, Robinson along with his wife Amy, as well as Jason Kissel and Justin Shye and Roni Shye. Robinson and Kissel have worked together as teachers for the past 15 years, and spent the last decade making homebrews, but the idea of opening a spot where people could grab a beer and coffee had been ‘brewing’ for a long time. With the Robinsons and Shyes calling Evan Farms home, it seemed the perfect location to bring their dream to life.
When it comes to the menu offerings, Robinson said guests will always have the opportunity to order coffee, even in the evenings. For coffee options, they will serve drip as well as espresso beverages, with housemade syrups. There will be nitro and cold brew available on tap. With a full bar available, guests can expect to find a handful of staple cocktails, including a coffee martini, and Robinson explained that there are plans to make “several iterations” of coffee beer as well.
When it comes to food, there are plans to offer sandwiches, the establishment will host food trucks and guests are welcome to bring in outside food. The current timeline for opening the brewery is next spring.
