Gongoozlers Brewery

One place where many Gongoozlers can gather and drink quality, craft beer!

Meaning Behind The Name
Gongoozlers is a term used to describe people who enjoy life in a canal town. Being located in a town that's connected to the Miami-Erie canal, which stretches from Cincinnati to Toledo, it is only fitting to have one place where many Gongoozlers can gather. Come join us at Gongoozlers Brewery, where we can enjoy life and great beer together!
Meet The Owners
James and Diane Gilberg had a wonderful idea to bring a brewery to small town New Bremen, Ohio. James, the Brew Master, started this adventure by making wine. Not long after starting the process, he realized how much time it took to make wine and wasn't pleased with the outcome. Using the same equipment, he brewed his first batch of beer! This was the start of his new found love for brewing craft beer. Not only does he enjoy the finished product, he appreciates the art and science behind developing a new beer.

Why Garage Beers? Our amateur brewery was in our garage and called Broken Elbow Brewery. This is where many different styles of beers were brewed in small batches to perfect some of the recipes that we use at Gongoozlers today. Many good times were had at Broken Elbow with taste testers not in short supply. We even are serving these beers from the old home made kegerator that we used in the garage. Garage Beers are beers made in small quantities. They won't last long!
