Business partners Chris Kambouris and Fred Lozano change up the flavors often in a new brewery launched intentionally to participate in a revival of Lorain, a former booming steel mill town similar to Kambouris’ hometown of Youngstown.
The flagship brew is Steam Powered Dream, a copper ale which he described as a good, clean, middle-of-the-road beer. Also recommended is Charleston Common, Erie Ghost Ship and Hop Waters, with a name playing off a local fishing spot, Hot Waters.
Currently aging is Flanders Red over raspberries.
Kambouris is a fan of locally produced malt from Matus Winery, which provides an unique flavor to brews. He located his business because of the appeal of Lorain’s rustic historical background.
