>>Meet the man behind Eudora Brewing Company
"It's the next step for us — we're out of space where we are now, that's for sure," Chabut told this news outlet last year when he confirmed plans for the new brewery and restaurant. "I can't make beer fast enough."
Eudora’s milestone relocation just adds to the craft-brewing renaissance that has occurred across the Miami Valley the last seven years. More than 15 new breweries have opened and are in the works. None has closed. Nearly all have expanded, most of them significantly.

Eudora closed its taproom up the street at 4716 Wilmington Pike in October while finishing work on the new facility, which previously housed a roofing supplies company, and, before that, operated for several years as a Pep Boys auto shop. Chabut opened the original taproom in 2013.

The nitro cold-brew coffee Eudora will serve is made locally-roasted beans from Dayton’s Twisted River Coffee Roasters, Chabut said. The kitchen will be launched with the guidance of consultant Jonathan Kouse of Chef Therapy Group.

Chabut, a 2007 Fairmont High School and 2011 University of Dayton graduate, said staying in Kettering was an important consideration in searching for a new location for the brewery.
“I love Kettering. I grew up here, and I didn’t want to go anywhere else,” he said. “I want to support this community. And I’m glad we found this space.”
