The Brew Kettle Production Works

TBK Production Works, The Brew Kettle Taproom &Smokehouse's production side of the business, began it's operations in 1995 as Ringneck Brewing Co. with a small 3 barrel brewhouse.

From that humble beginning, we have been committed to producing ales and lagers of superb quality and character. The brewery has expanded twice since then increasing to a 12 barrels system in 2003 and most recently to a 20 barrel system in the spring of 2008.

With this increase in production, Look for our hand crafted beers on draft and in retail establishments throughout Ohio and Kentucky.
