Listermann Brewing Company Announces New Ownership

​Dan and Sue Listermann have announced their retirement from Listermann Brewing Company, one of Cincinnati, Ohio’s first craft breweries and the region’s largest home brewing supply store. Terrie and Steve Ipson will continue the Listermann’s legacy through the creation and delivery of exceptional craft beer, community service and support for those who have a passion for home brewing.

Since the brewery’s opening in 2008, Listermann has risen to become a nationally recognized, heavily decorated craft beer icon. Listermann Brewing Company has won Gold medals from GABF (Great American Beer Festival), FOBAB (Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers), and the US Open Beer Cup. From equipment to manufacturing, sales, and eventually, a taproom, Listermann Brewing Company has been a major contributor in growing the craft beer industry.

Under the continued leadership of Jon Vollman (General Manager), Matthew Daniel (Head Brewer), and the rest of Listermann’s superb staff, Listermann Brewing Company will continue to brew and distribute a wide array of quality craft beers. Listermann will continue to round out their 18 rotating taps with the award-winning Chickow! Double Brown Ale and Nutcase Peanut Butter Porter, along with premium lagers, IPAs, stouts, sours, meads, ciders and various barrel-aged offerings to please any palette.

Embodying the soul of craft beer, Listermann Brewing Company started by manufacturing homebrewing equipment in 1991 and evolved into a full-scale homebrew shop in 1994. Allen Moellmann, Home Brew Store Manager and pilot brewer, along with the rest of the experienced and knowledgeable staff, will continue to assist the home brew community by providing a wide range of equipment and supplies to brew the best craft beer possible.

Listermann’s founders, Dan and Sue Listermann shared, “We’re exceptionally proud of the opportunity to have been pioneers in supporting local home brewers and helping to build the Cincinnati craft brewery scene. When looking toward the future, we knew finding someone that could maintain our reputation, continue our legacy and take Listermann Brewing Company to the next level was critical. The Ipson’s ability to focus on quality craft beer, guest experience, community involvement and employee culture will enable them to carry on the Listermann Brewing family tradition and values.”

Terrie Ipson, co-owner said, “We couldn’t be more excited to join the Listermann family. We have been working for more than 10 years to be a part of the craft brewery industry and when Steve and I were contacted by the Listermann’s, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to lead one of our favorite breweries in Ohio.”
