Platform Beer Co. was founded in 2014 with a two-pronged mission:
1. Brew tasty beers for sale in our tasting room and at your favorite bar and/or restaurant.
Our brewer, Reed Jaskula, believes in brewing diverse, seasonal options at our tasting room in Ohio City, the unofficial Brewery District of Cleveland. Â Styles range from new American styles to experimental sours and Barrel Aged beers.
Technical perfection is the goal in every batch we produce and every style we create; nothing else is acceptable.
2. Create opportunity for those who wish to begin a career in the brewing industry.
Owner, Paul Benner, opened Cleveland's largest Homebrew Supply Shop in 2012 after falling in love with the home-based hobbies of making beer and wine. Â Shortly after brewing his first beer, the inspiration to open a full-service, educationally slanted shop was born. Â Inspired by the many loyal customers of The Cleveland Brew Shop who would state on a daily basis that they would, "quit their job if the could find a way to make beer for the rest of my life" Platform Beer Co. came into existence.
Thus Platform's Brewery Incubator was born. Â We give brewers the opportunity to have their homebrewed recipes enjoyed by the general public; a dream come true for an accomplished brewer. Â We also have them train hands-on with our brewmaster, bump up their home recipe to a 3 bbl pilot batch and shadow our staff during all facets of the brewing process. Â We also help them create a business plan, develop financial projections, work with Â logo/design team and guide them through the regulatory hurdles associated with the beer industry.
Our goal is to help them open a brewery in the future; our way of paying it forward.
