Lineage Brewing's name and location are appropriate given their Clintonville locale. The Winemaker's Shop at the heart of the neighborhood inspired some of our earliest microbrewers, including owner Scott Francis - brewer at the forthcoming Temperance Row - and Angelo Signorino, reigning head brewer at Barley's and Smokehouse Brewing.

Lineage Brewing's name and location are appropriate given their Clintonville locale. The Winemaker's Shop at the heart of the neighborhood inspired some of our earliest microbrewers, including owner Scott Francis - brewer at the forthcoming Temperance Row - and Angelo Signorino, reigning head brewer at Barley's and Smokehouse Brewing.

The couples behind Lineage Brewing - Jessica and Mike Byrne, and Carey Hall and Jessica Page - named it in honor of their past: their family histories, their travel experiences and the great traditions of craft beer. Between the four of them, they share more than 100 years living in Clintonville, and their collective experience spans years of homebrewing, research, certified beer judging and all-around commitment to the art of brewing.

Their brewery and taproom, which started construction in October, will include a 60-seat pub and a 20-seat patio, with brews crafted on a 7-barrel brewing system. Mike Byrne doesn't plan on having a stylistic focus when it comes to their beers.

"Good beer - that's all I care about," he said.

The space itself will have a contemporary feel, a call back to everyone's art backgrounds. Mike said they want the brewery to feel like a studio where one experiments.

Food will consist of easily hand-held items. Jessica Byrne hails from Colombia, so the brewery plans to serve sweet and savory empanadas.

"It's something you can hold in one hand with a beer in the other," Mike said.
