Home State of Mind

The four co-owners of Home State Brewing Co., which will open later this year in Hamlin Town Center, all bring a different perspective to the brewing business.

Local beer lovers soon will have a new place to raise their glasses

Home State Brewing Co. is set to join the growing list of dining, shopping and entertainment offerings at Hamlin Town Center in Horizon West.

“We want to establish ourselves as a community hub where everyone feels welcome,” Home State Brewing Co. co-owner Colin Vanatta said.

The 4,315 square-foot floorplan features a brewery and an indoor taproom, as well as an outdoor patio and a beer garden. Trees left over from Hamlin’s landscaping will surround the beer garden, which also will feature a stage. The opening is slated for December, but the long-range plan includes a menu of in-house eats from their own small kitchen.

The team behind the scenes comprises four co-owners. Each hail from different states, but all are driven by a passion for sharing their craft and serving the community.
