Toxic Brew Company Celebrates 10 Years in Dayton!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since Toxic Brew Company opened its doors in the Oregon District of Dayton, Ohio. What started as a small craft brewery has grown into a beloved local institution, known for its creative beer flavors, live music, and community events.

Toxic Brew Company

How It All Began

It all started with three friends who shared a love of beer and a desire to create something special in their hometown. Shane Juhl, a former brewer at Carillon Brewing Company, teamed up with his childhood friend, Bartholomew MacLean, and their mutual friend, Brian Petro, to create Toxic Brew Company. The trio spent months perfecting their recipes and getting their operation up and running.

The Early Days

In the early days, Toxic Brew Company was a small, quirky brewery with a loyal local following. The brewery’s signature logo featured a three-eyed fish, inspired by the polluted waters of the nearby Great Miami River. The brewery’s beers, with names like “Abominator,” “Night Ender,” and “Black Tonic,” were as bold and unconventional as the company itself.

Expansion and Growth

In the years that followed, Toxic Brew Company continued to expand and grow. The brewery moved to a larger location in the Oregon District, where it could accommodate live music performances and larger crowds. Toxic Brew Company also began distributing its products to local bars and restaurants, exposing even more people to its unique and delicious beer flavors.

Celebrating 10 Years

Today, Toxic Brew Company is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a series of events and special releases. The company is hosting a party at its brewery, complete with live music, food trucks, and of course, plenty of beer. In honor of its 10th anniversary, Toxic Brew Company has also released a limited edition beer called “X,” a bold and flavorful imperial stout.

A Bright Future

Looking ahead, Toxic Brew Company shows no signs of slowing down. The company plans to continue creating innovative and exciting beer flavors, hosting community events, and spreading the love of craft beer throughout Dayton and beyond. Congratulations, Toxic Brew Company, on 10 amazing years, and cheers to many more!
