Bascule Brewery and Public House was established in 2015 by our Brew Master Chris Kambouris. Our name derives from the unmistakable Bascule Bridge aka Charles Berry Bascule Bridge which lies over the Black River in Lorain, Ohio just a short distance from the brewery. Bascule Brewery is Lorain's first and only brewpub. Our unique combination of unwavering creativity, unquestionable expertise, and relentless innovation, drive us to craft beers and hard seltzers that quite frankly, might change the way you think about them. You can find us in multiple beer trails such as Tag-A-Brew, Ohio On Tap, and The Cleveland Brewery passport. We are also a proud member of the Ohio Craft Brewers Association.
Chris Kambouris is the founder and Head Brewer for Bascule Brewery. His thirst for knowledge and passion for how interesting brewing can be, began years ago from home brewing. Over the years he has mastered the art of brewing craft beer. It was his passion and insatiable curiosity that led him to open a brewpub.
Bascule Brewery has opened Lorain's first Beer Garden. Enjoy our beautiful and cozy outdoor seating area equipped with handcrafted picnic tables, cornhole boards, and irreplacable memories. Our beer garden is dog-friendly!
