Outside the Brewery at Platform Beer Co. in Cleveland, Ohio

Platform Beer Co.

Platform Beer Co. is a micro brewery that opened in 2014 with tasting room locations in Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio. The brewery’s production location in Cleveland, Ohio produces cans and kegs for distribution in Ohio and select markets outside of the state.

From humble beginnings, brewing on a 3 bbl brewhouse in Cleveland, Platform has expanded to a second tasting room in Columbus, a production facility in Cleveland, a Cincinnati tasting room named LOCOBA and a sour beer facility in Cleveland named Phunkenship.

We brew high-quality craft beers for sale in our tasting rooms and distribute throughout Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, New York City, Connecticut, and New Jersey. Platform Beer Co. products can be found at grocery stores and craft bottle shops. Expect a mix of ever-changing styles inspired by beer trends.

Platform Brewhouse

Opened in 2014, this 100+ seat tasting room and patio offers 20+ house beers and food options. The 10 BBL brewhouse creates a constantly changing selection of styles. Head R&D brewer Rory Schecter leads the way at our Flagship location.

Platform Columbus

Opened in 2016, this 100+ seat tasting room and patio offers rotating house beers and daily food options (provided by local vendors). The 3.5 BBL brewhouse was the original Platform Cleveland system and now churns out experimental and barrel-aged beer by head brewer Phil Blundred.

Production Facility

Opened in 2016, our 60 BBL production brewhouse helps supply our regional market with canned and kegged beer year-round. Located in a 120,000 sq. ft. former Leisy Brewing Company building, the facility is a throwback to Cleveland’s brewing past with an updated, modern commercial beer-making operation. Head brewer Danny Monnot leads the way at our production facility.

LOCOBA

Opened in 2017, LOCOBA or Local Coffee Barrels is located in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati. The 50-plus taproom serves patrons from morning to evening. Brewing on-site consists of small batches aged in barrels. Offerings include artesian coffee, all-day food options, craft cocktails, and Platform beer.

Phunkenship

Opened to the public in 2019, Phunkenship is the dedicated sour beer-making facility of Platform Beer Co. Our souring program utilizes the “coolship” method of brewing which allows for spontaneous inoculation of unfermented, cooling wort. Paired with primary fermentation in wood barrels and foeders, our Phunkenship brand of sour beers are artfully designed and funky by nature. The tasting room is open limited house and available for private events.
