2018 Community Partner: Brewfontaine
The LCFM Community Partner commits to taking an active role in supporting and strengthening the local food system. A large financial donation aids the LCFM in expanding the educational and community programs offered. The CP also assists in opening new revenue channels for local food producers by featuring their products and hosting food events.
As the 2018 Community Partner, Brewfontaine hosted a farm-to-table fundraiser with the Logan County Farmer’s Market which raised over $3,000! This was in addition to the $5,000 donated at the beginning of the season. Brewfontaine also attended the market in June and Executive Chef Joseph Moore put on a local produce pickling demonstration for market customers.
Going forward, Brewfontaine hopes to obtain even more ingredients for their menu from local growers and producers.
In 2017, CraftBeer.com voted Brewfontaine the #1 Beer Bar in Ohio. Boasting a large can and bottle selection and an ever-changing draft list of mead, cider, and craft beer, Brewfontaine puts a heavy focus on Ohio breweries. But it doesn’t just stop there. “Most of the community knows us for our drink selection, which is great, but food is actually half our business and we use as much local, quality, fresh ingredients as possible,” says Adam Rammel, Co-owner of Brewfontaine. “Our farmer’s market is incredibly important and serves as not only a way for people to purchase locally grown produce but also as a chance for them to connect with others. This is a growing national trend and it’s a great feeling to be able to put a face to the farmer who grew the product. We’re thrilled to be the Community Partner in 2018.”
