A father-and-son duo is gearing up for build-out and has already come up with the first food menu for their new Loose Ends Brewing Co., which is coming this spring to south Centerville.
“We have made a lot of progress in the past couple of months, though it may not seem like it from the outside,” Loose Ends co-founder John Loose told this news outlet of the new craft brewery coming to 890 S. Main Street (Ohio 48) in Centerville. “We are expecting to start the construction and build-out phase in mid-February,” with a projected completion this spring.
Loose is a 2005 graduate of Centerville High School who is partnering with his father, Kent Loose, to launch the new brewery.
“In working with our chef, we have come up with our first menu for opening that will consist of some traditional items, but is also focused on offering a wide variety of food from different backgrounds, such as Asian, Classic American, Hispanic and others,” Loose said.

“In addition to this wonderful collection of food, we will be opening with 10 different beers on tap, with the intent of pairing these beers with our dishes. Although both our beer and food stand well on their own, our goal is to create that ‘Ah-ha’ moment on our customers’ palates where the beer and food transform into something completely different and will leave a lasting impression.”
Beyond offering its own beers, the 175-seat Loose Ends Brewing Co. also will offer a full bar, including wine, liquor, and its own ciders, which the brewery will make in-house from Hidden Valley Orchards cider, Loose said.
Loose said the new family-run brewery will be committed to giving back to the community.
“One thing that we are truly excited about in addition to providing a great drinking and dining experience is our philanthropic endeavors through our non-profit, Loose Change Charities,” the brewery co-founder said. “Our team believes that we have been given a great opportunity to do what we love, and we want to share that by partnering with other charities to support others in our community.”
In September 2019, when plans for the brewery were released, Centerville Economic Development Administrator Michael Norton-Smith said Loose Ends Brewing Co. “will be a terrific complement to the dining and entertainment offerings already in the Centerville Shopping Center as well as those that will be coming in the future as the nearby Centerville Place development moves forward.”
John Loose said at the time that he and his father “spent the majority of 2018 looking at different locations in the area from Bellbrook, Springboro, and Centerville. There wasn't much out there when we were looking, and when this space became available, we were thrilled.”
The brewery’s founders will be updating its progress on the Loose Ends Brewing Instagram account.
