Warped Wing Brewing Co. is a Dayton craft brewery inspired by Ohio’s rich history of innovation and invention. They are committed to carrying that spirit forward by brewing new proprietary beer styles along with original “warped” interpretations.
The Crooked Handle Brewing Co. founders were introduced to brewing craft beer in 2008. Weekends were spent together in a small garage on a horse farm crafting beers using nothing more than a couple of igloo coolers, a small kettle, and a propane turkey fryer.
Moeller Brew Barn was built on their passion for brewing quality craft beer for local communities, and because they believe everyone should have a choice to enjoy fresh, local, craft beer.
