The name Sandy Springs is originated from our 18th century farm, which is located along Sandy Springs Rd. in Minerva Ohio. The Sandy Spring was a natural sprin…g the fed into the old farmhouse, where we currently reside. Our daughter is the 6th generation to live here. There are fond memories of visiting my great grandmother as a child and dipping an old tin cup into the large barrel of water where the spring entered the house. Original plans for the brewery were for it to be located in the old red T-barn on the farm, that also dated back to the 1800â€™s. In fact, we had an inspection to determine its structural integrity with positive recommendations that the barn would stand for another 75 years. Sadly, 4 days later after this inspection in 2013, it was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. Fortunately we were able to salvage several of the old and now fire-scarred barn beams and floor joists. This wood will be featured throughout our new taproom in downtown Minerva. The tree in our logo symbolizes the massive old oak tree that stands by itself towering in the center of our farm. We often refer to it as our â€œTree of lifeâ€. It represents our heritage and history of the farm and the now 6 generations of family who have come to call it home. Although it was terribly sad to see the barn burn, we are incredibly excited for our new location of Sandy Springs Brewing Company at the center of downtown Minerva and look forward to being a big part of the growing community. We will feature American and European style ales with an atmosphere that promotes a community and family-centered place to meet, spend great times, and create lasting memories. We look forward to seeing you in our taproom (Opening- October 2017) to enjoy with us our local hand-crafted beer. Cheers! Andy and Amanda Conrad
Owned and Operated by Husband and Wife Team, Andy and Amanda Conrad. Our passion for craft beer was born over 11 years ago while developing early recipes as ho…me brewers in college. This passion and love was then scaled to new heights during an adventure out West while working as traveling physical therapists for 3 years. Our visits to many different breweries enabled us to taste a wide variety of beers, see different brewing techniques, and enjoy the atmosphere of each unique brewery. It was during this time that the initial planning for Sandy Springs Brewing Company began, and those experiences have greatly influenced our vision for what we have built in downtown Minerva. We also had an amazing opportunity to volunteer at Santa Fe Brewing Co’s production facility in New Mexico, where we gained insight into the commercial side of the industry. We feel strongly about the history of Minerva and are so excited to be located in the old “Filling Station” with hopes to bring more tourism and business to the heart of downtown Minerva.
