DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - There is something to be said about a well-crafted beer.
"It's a tastier beer and I love tastier beers," said Ronald Burke.
Those are typically beers you can only find in one location.
They often have themes inspired from the neighborhood where it is located.
Fifth Street Brewpub is hoping they can create their own niche in the market.
"This whole idea started with a derilict building that we had in the neighborhood and none of the neighbors liked the building," said Brian Young with Fifth Street Brewpub.
That idea turned into one of the fastest growing, cooperatively owned brewpubs in the nation.
But it is just a small part of the equation.
What is really brewing inside brewpubs is part of a $100 billion dollar industry.
Craft brews across the nation are raking in about ten percent of that.
And small breweries like Fifth Street are creating jobs with more to come.
"Phase 2 will be something we do with the brewpub or the brewhouse," said Young. "And Phase 3 will be the kitchen serving food."
Young said he expects 30 jobs to come when those two phases are complete in the next couple of months.
It leaves a good taste in the mouths of the community.
All that is left is to create a signature beer people cannot stay away from.
"I hope so," said Burke. "If I have any say in it. I just hope it's something unique you can't get anywhere else. You can go anywhere and get an IPA or a doppelbock. But I want something unique just to this part of Dayton."
