New brewery in the works for West Side

Brothers Mike and Jim Gunnarson want to prove that "the West Side is
  the best side, and we can make great beer," as Jim Gunnarson puts
it.

  They plan to open Bridgetown Brew Works by spring of 2014. Though
they
  have a location in mind, they're waiting on financing before they
sign
  a lease -- or reveal the spot. Jim Gunnarson said they'll be
"somewhere
  on Harrison Avenue between Miamitown and Cheviot."

  

  He's been home brewing for years, and his brother, Mike, has
  the business acumen (but does enjoy great beer, Jim Gunnarson points
  out).

  "I had a dream of opening a brewery back in the mid-'90s, when
things
  started to boom down on Main Street," Jim Gunnarson said. "I was
young
  and lost interest when the market changed. As you start getting
older
  and have children, you start thinking about some sort of legacy you
can
  pass down to them."


Their flaship beers, made from recipes Jim Gunnarson or someone in the
  brothers' group of brewers has come up with, will be Oak Hills
Lager,
  Hairpin IPA, Muddy Creek Wheat, Bridgetown Hefeweizen and Roland
Root
  Beer.

  Seasonal or special runs will be offered on a monthly basis.

  "We are trying to do things in a way that keeps the heritage of
brewing
  alive," Jim Gunnarson said.
