    I have had some brewers that have made wine tell me it is a risk to make beer in a winery as the microbial population in wineries can lead to infections or unintended flavor profiles in beer. As a winemaker I prefer a diverse microbial population and suspect it could help improve complexity of wine. I suspect it would be best to have dedicated sections to wine and beer if done by the same operation. On another note for information on the unnecessary, superfluous, duplicitous, and discriminatory regulation of Ohio wineries by the Ohio Department of Agriculture (Food Safety division) or to take action on Ohio Senate bill 32, please see: or
