Gahanna Raises a Glass and Welcomes Heart State Brewing Company

On March 25, Heart State Brewing Company held its official grand opening at 505 Morrison Road. The colorful, vibrant interior greeted new fans and longtime supporters in this multi-functional space.

“We’ve gotten to know so many people in the Gahanna area, and we have received a great response from the community,” shared brewery co-owner Max Unverferth. In late 2020, Heart State Brewing Company opened its production facility in Gahanna at 750 Cross Pointe Road, Suite J.

“We felt confident about doing business in Gahanna, so we chose to open a customer-facing location on Morrison Road, enabling us to greatly expand our production capability on Cross Pointe Road to meet growing demand. This expansion to Morrison Road is our way of saying thank you to Gahanna for being such a great place to do business,” explained Brad Ginger, Head Brewer at Heart State Brewing Company.

At 505 Morrison Road, patrons can enjoy a dynamic experience both inside and outside, taking in live music, billiards, ping pong, a beer garden, local art, and unique food trucks.

“Having a patio space really opens up the opportunities, and we’re excited to plan a variety of programming to make the best and most creative use of our beer garden,” said Ginger.

A growing number of Gahanna restaurants already support Heart State Brewing Company, creating another way for customers to experience this company’s eclectic brews. Signatures, Gatsby’s, Sexton’s Pizza, and Local Cantina are a few of the many regional spots that showcase Heart State Brewing Co. selections on tap.

“Heart State’s local distribution continues to grow, including Gahanna sites at Giant Eagle, 1837 Wine and Spirits Emporium, Cigara, and Metro Beer and Wine Drive Thru, among others,” said Unverferth.

The rapid growth of Heart State Brewing Company is largely due to its small, yet passionate, leadership team that boasts decades of experience in the evolving brewing industry. These factors culminated in careful strategic planning to ensure Heart State Brewing Company’s measured growth was benchmarked for incremental success.
