The Stein Brewing Co. taproom will offer a full-service bar that include six Stein Brewing Co. beers, craft beers from around Ohio and other beer, wine and liquor. The taproom will be located where TheHarvest@TheWoodward is currently situated at 105 S. Main St.


MOUNT VERNON — Cutting edge. Local. Philanthropic. Local. Fun. Local.

If you haven’t guessed, David Stein is obsessed with the concept of local and he’s proudly mixing that in with his plans to integrate a new concept of craft beer and dining experience into the historic Woodward Opera House. Ultimately, he’d like Stein Brewing Co. to become part of downtown Mount Vernon’s “local” branding.

Stein will be a major player in the Opera House with the rental of four spaces — two for the restaurant, one for the taproom and a basement space for his headquarters. It’s quite a project, but the young entrepreneur is up for the task and ready to add more life to downtown Mount Vernon.

“One of the main things you see is all the effort that has been put into downtown. Obviously Karen (Buchwald Wright) has shouldered a big load of that, to say the least. I like the look and feel of how things are going downtown,” Stein told the News.
