FRESNO – Kevin Ely is bringing his years of experience at Uinta Brewing Co . in Salt Lake City , Utah , to Coshocton County to create a unique experience for residents and people in the surrounding area .
Ely , his wife , brother-in-law and sisterin-law live on a farm that dates back to the 1860s and he is using part of their property to create the Wooly Pig Farm Brewery . The brewery will feature a very rustic look with a variety of wood finishes and accents that came straight from a former barn on the property .
“ Our main focus is going to be rustic German farm beers ,” Ely said . “ I spent a lot of time traveling in rural Bavaria and that ’ s where I first saw the Wooly Pigs that we now have roaming around . They are really neat and tasty . We hope to serve some products made from our pigs .”
They plan to start simple though with adding food choices to go with their beers , but hope to work up to eventually doing special dinners that would be ticketed events .
Beers offered in bottles when the brewery opens this July will include : Rustic Helles , Hoppy Pils , Schwarz Beer and Traditional Gose .

“ You will be able to get those in half liter bottles in four packs ,” Ely said . “ We ’ ll have a cold room out here that is like a giant cooler , but it will have these heavy wooden doors .”
He also plans to work up to having 12 beers on tab .
Ely believes the Wooly Pig Farm Brewery will be a great addition to Coshocton , especially with its already well established wine trail .
“ I think this is really going to help with tourism ,” he said . “ I hope it fulfills the desires of people who want to visit breweries and creates a nice environment for them to enjoy craft beer in . Plus we are going to have an outdoor area and people love to see the wooly pigs .”

Ely is looking forward to offering the area the best craft beer he possibly can .
“ I love this because it really is a blending of the arts and sciences ,” he said .
Ely studied the science of creating beer in college and one of his responsibilities while in Utah was to build up the Uinta Brewing Co . where he worked for nine of the last 10 years .
“ Our main focus is going to be rustic German farm beers .”

“ Five years ago there were only about 1,700 ,” he said . “ This is a great area to add a brewery . We are in the middle of several places and have good traffic . I really like Coshocton County . The community has been very supportive of us .”
For now the brewery will be family operated , but if things go well they hope to hire one or two extra hands and give back to the community as much as possible .
