The “Gypsy” brewery Nowhere in Particular has found its sanctuary and will soon open its first bricks-and-mortar location in Kettering.
Brewer Pat Sullivan, who launched Nowhere in Particular when he was brewing beer for Toxic Brew Co., told this news outlet this morning that he has signed a lease for the former Eudora Brewing Company space at 4716 Wilmington Pike in Kettering. Build-out has already begun, and much of the brewing equipment is already in place, Sullivan said.
Sullivan and his partners applied to the state for a craft brewery license this week, and if all goes well, the new local brewery to be called “Nowhere in Particular Cabinet of Curiosity” could open in about three months, the brewer said.
“Dayton is our biggest market, and we have roots here,” Sullivan said. “The former Eudora space is already set up as a brewery, and there is a lot of development going on in the area.”
Sullivan, who is also known in brewing circles as Charlie Navillus, also brews beer for Somewhere in Particular in Columbus, and said he will continue in that role.
He promised to “have fun” with the beer offerings at Nowhere in Particular Cabinet of Curiosity.
"Although continuing with the gypsy model, Nowhere in Particular is establishing this Cabinet of Curiosities in part to indulge its fringe audience with more inventive takes on a wider range of styles," Sullivan said. “We will be offering aggressively experimental brews.”
Eudora operated from the 4716 Wilmington Pike space from its founding in 2013 until October 2018, when it shut down to gear up for its move up the street to larger space near Wilmington Pike and East Dorothy Lane.
The new brewery in the works represents yet another indication of the craft-brewing renaissance that has swept the Miami Valley in the last eight years. More than 15 breweries have opened in the region, and, unlike other Ohio metropolitan areas, none has shut down.
