Another local pub pours its own brew

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Many are raising their glasses tonight to the addition of another brewery in the Miami Valley.

But are there so many now that drinkers are getting their fill. A few years ago you couldn’t find any.

So when it comes to beer we’re asking is the glass half filled or is it overflowing.

The Fifth Street Brew Pub in Dayton is now making its own beer, joining eight other local breweries.

The Brew Pub has been open since last summer but this marks the first time it will be pouring its own product.

The recent boom in local beer happened after Ohio changed its laws making it easier to open a brewery.

But we wanted to know if at some point the area will have had a few too many.

“People talk about the bubble of craft beer. I don’t think there’s a bubble,” said Darren Link of the Fifth Street Brew Pub. “I think there’s enough to go around and we’re only cutting into the big guys’

Among the first to start brewing its own beer, the Eurdora Brewing Company, opened in November. Owner Neil Chabut said there’s more than enough business to go around. He says he doesn’t see the other breweries as rivals as much as people who he can share a beer with.

“It’s been great. We’ve had really great turnout,” reports Eudora’s Neil Chabut. “We see it as a collaborative effort to build the beer community in the Dayton area.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
