HOURS OF OPERATION
Combustion Brewery and Taproom is a new brewery producing and serving craft beer in Pickerington Village. The brewery is in a historical building that once housed the Pickerington Creamery. The history of the Creamery still shines through in the unique building. The red dairy tile floors, brick walls, large windows and high ceilings bring character to the space and are complimented with the various salvaged materials, including the reclaimed barn woods from the Pickering family farm property that is now Combustion’s unique bar top. The taproom boasts an abundance of natural light and the addition of a garage door lends an inviting and warm atmosphere.
Patrons can enjoy a wide selection of beers made in-house and always fresh. Saddle up at the bar and get a front row seat of the Brewery in action through large windows situated immediately next to the brew house, find comfort chatting with friends in the lounge area, enjoy the patio or take a seat in the “saloon,” filled with natural light. We hope families will feel comfortable bringing their children to the Taproom. We have games for children and adults alike, but we also have a small area meant to keep young children entertained while parents can enjoy a beer and the company of friends.
In addition to beer, we will be brewing up some coffee as well. Single pour over coffee and cold-pressed nitro-coffee will be available to guests.
KEITH JACKSON BIO, OWNER & BREWMASTER
Keith Jackson is an experienced Brewer with 8-years in the industry. Keith got his first taste of brewing as an undergraduate student at Ohio University when homebrewing became a hobby. Keith and his wife Sarah spent 3 years in the Pacific Northwest where Keith’s interest in homebrewing became a love of Craft Beer. Upon returning to Ohio in 2009, Keith knew he was not cut out for a desk job and began pursuing a professional career in brewing. He literally got his feet wet in the industry volunteering at Elevator Brewery, but quickly got an Assistant Brewers position at Columbus Brewing Company washing kegs, working the bottling line and eventually brewing. His plans to start his own Brewery developed early on but he knew additional experience would be key to a successful business. His drive and perseverance proved purposeful when he secured a job as Head Brewer with Gordon Biersch in 2012 where he worked for almost 5 years. He began his search for the perfect location to start his brewery a few years into his career at Gordon Biersch.
