In 2012, there were fewer than 50 craft breweries in Ohio. Today, there are more than 300.
This week, brewery owners and employees from across the state are gathering here in Dayton for the Sixth Annual Ohio Craft Brewers Conference.
The conference offers seminars on things like how to handle yeast, how to do taxes, and how to market a new ale.
Spokesperson Justin Hemminger is quick to note that most Ohio breweries are less than five years old.
