I'll keep posting here and on fb to keep everyone updated.

Thanks!
So when is this place opening? Will you be offering tours?

Right now I'm building out equipment and waiting around for some new ohio legislation to become effective.

We are looking at a tentative opening of April 2014.

We also are scouting other locations that are outside of downtown at the moment.

Most of the equipment is ordered, minus a few fermenters, but things are progressing and going well.

I'm originally from Toledo and pass through there from time to time. I would definitely stop by after you're open. Good luck!

Does anyone else refer to to Toledo as the dollar beer capital of the US? I have a tough time finding good beer and food at the same restaurant.

Check out the Attic on Adams street near downtown toledo. There is a restaurant in the basement that serves food to the bar upstairs and it's pretty good.

Blarney and Cock & Bull are both good food and drink places, and that's coming from someone who doesn't go to bars generally.

On another note, my company just moved to Maumee from downtown Toledo. So hopefully Fiziks will be somewhere nearby so I can frequent his place!

I Don't think you're trying very hard, friend. I have my fair share of gripes about Toledo, but finding good beer at good restaurants is not one of them. Most of the places I frequent, are not in Toledo proper, but consider to be in the Toledo area. Here's my list of places where you can go to get great food and awesome craft beer.

Swig---Perrysburg
Fifth street pub---Perrysburg
Stella's---Perrysburg

Barr's public house--maumee

Pizzapapalis---Toledo---they pour a few
Home slice pizza---always have a couple of unique brews on tap
Attic on Adams---lots of great craft beer; no idea about their food.

If you just want to buy craft beer, here's where you go:

The Anderson's
Marines in Sylvania
Churchills
The beer and wine cave---they also have beer on tap and growlers.

Most of the liquor stores are also figuring out te mix-and-match concept
