With the rapidly-changing landscape we continue to navigate each day, we wanted to update our family on our focus and vision moving forward. Although we don’t know when we will be able to begin having events in the tap room again, we are taking the health of our employees and customers very seriously and will be keeping that at the forefront of all our decisions.
Distribution in the Market
For nearly 7 years, we have supplied Columbus and the surrounding markets with craft beer, created amazing friendships and built relationships that will last a lifetime. We wouldn’t be here today without the incredible support of our hyper-local fans and our extended family throughout Alabama and Georgia.
After careful consideration, we have made the decision to stop all distribution to the market. With the ever changing craft beer landscape, we have decided to scale down and focus more on the family atmosphere of the company that you all have come to know and love. We hate that you will no longer be able to request your favorite Omaha brew at your local spots, but we are so excited to have our loyal customers back into the taproom to share the love from here at home.
Tap Room Focus and Innovation
All the brands that have carried OBC over the years will continue to be brewed and available in the tap room. We also plan to produce some innovative and unique brews and offer limited, small-batch releases frequently.
As the tap room is able to move towards fully reopening, we plan to continue to offer live music and food trucks on a regular basis, as well as create even more unique and regionally-driven events for all ages to enjoy, including more food-oriented competitions.
In addition, we are in the early stages of planning expanded amenities at the tap room, including a dog park and additional outside seating, and will continue to update you all as we progress with these additions.
Production Shifting to Hand Sanitizer
With the current health crisis, we have been working tediously towards shifting a part of our production facility to make and package hand sanitizer to help supply businesses, communities and families. We will continue to update the public on availability. Bulk totes, gallon jugs, and personal size containers will be available for purchase in the taproom, through our sales manager, and on our website.
We’re all going through tough times, but we’re excited to see what the future holds and to share it with each and every one of our fans.
Stay safe and cheers to your health!
Robert and Stephanie Lee & The OBC Family
