WELCOME TO THE SAUCY STATE OF MIND

Saucy Brew Works is an Ohio-based production brewery and brewpub in sunny Cleveland, Ohio. We are embarking on a massive expansion phase that includes three more brewpubs and a production facility to support our growth.


Above all Saucy is built on its people; The Saucy Posse, as we call it. Together we focus on superior quality products, imaginative beer, food, and culture. We invest in our talented associates and in the absolute best process technology. We’ve put in place philanthropic efforts that support local schools, our precious water supply, hospitals, and employees in need due to trying life circumstances.

One guy knows beer, One guy knows business, and they’re both handsome

Brewmaster Eric Anderson and entrepreneur Brent Zimmerman, both long time craft beer fanatics, teamed up and went to work transforming the Steelman Building in Cleveland, Ohio. The goal, to create and grow a brewery and business rich with passionate people innovating on a daily basis.

Startup breweries can be underfunded, undersized, and under planned

We didn’t want a frankensteined brewhouse in a dusty, hot warehouse, with no business plan. Solid beer culture and quality production require a stacked bench of talent and the most innovative technology to deliver consistent products and positive experiences. Breweries are a melting pot of creativity, science, mechanics, business savvy, and teamwork. To continue to grow a business that flourishes from each skill set and asset, the list of demands is long.

We wanted to do things our way. The Saucy Way.

When we first began to conceptualize our dream brewery the top of the page read “the best or nothing.” We bought the number one brewhouse in its size class, a 20 hL 3 vessel German-made BrauKon, and built its surrounding pub in the same fashion from stainless steel draft lines, to industrial design, and experimental menus. Simply put, our solution is never compromising quality in order to offer consistent beer and experiences that our consumers have been craving.

Rated Cleveland’s 2019 Best Brewery, Just One of Many Awards

We were chosen as the best brewery in Northeast Ohio as voted by Cleveland.com in 2019. 75 breweries were a part of the competition that included trained judges who Facebook Live graded each competitor's beer that had entered. We are a Top 10 dollar growth brand in Information Resources, Inc. (IRI) sales, in our home market of Cleveland, through all of 2019. Additionally, we are a Top 50 Craft brand, in IRI sales, in all of 2019,  for the whole state of Ohio.

Our beers win awards...


  • Bronze Medal - Cleveland Oktoberfest - IPA ASAP, 2019
  • Bronze Medal - Cleveland Oktoberfest - FESTBIER, 2019
  • Bronze Medal - King of Ohio - LOVE YOU, BYE, 2019
  • Cleveland Advertising Awards: Gold Medalist - Dead Nuts Poster Series, 2018

We have made a home for ourselves in Ohio where we have expanded rapidly. Our tasty suds now span the entire state of Ohio from a distribution standpoint, through our local distributor House of LaRose, Inc. and our more recent partnership with Heidelberg Distributing Company.


...and so does our brew pub. 


  • Silver Spoon Awards: Best Pizza in Cleveland, 2017, 2019, 2020
  • Cleveland.com's Best Brewery in Cleveland 2019
  • Silver Spoon Awards: Best Brewery in Cleveland Runner-up 2020

Proud Craft Beer Partner of the Cleveland Cavaliers

  • Saucy Brew Works South Pub: In 2019 we opened the South Pub inside of the newly transformed Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.  The 1,500 square foot space features an over 50-foot bar made of a solid wood Antique American Oak counter and provides a view of the Cleveland Indians ballpark Progressive Field across from the arena. 
  • Game Day Engagement: We can be seen throughout the arena and surrounding the court during Cleveland Cavaliers basketball games
  • NBA Draft Parties: Each year Saucy host's an annual NBA Draft Lottery Watch-Party with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the best fans in The Land!
  • Entertainment: Saucy hosts various watch parties throughout Northeast Ohio with appearances by the Cavs Entertainment Teams and Mascots
  • Cleveland Cavaliers 50th Anniversary: We brewed the Golden Saison in 2019 for the grand reopening of Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse and in honor of the Cavs Golden-year season


Year Round & Seasonal Offerings


Over the past year, we have launched a new distribution partnership that allows us to distribute our beers outside of the original nine counties covered by House of LaRose, Inc.. Our new distribution partner, Heidelberg Distributing Company, services over 27,000 accounts statewide in its craft division. This relationship should enable us to reach the full 75% of the population of Ohio, we previously were not effectively reaching with plans to enter the Sandusky and Cincinnati areas very soon. The potential reach is over 30,000 customers!

We use the “pub and spoke” approach; a production facility that supplies smaller, neighborhood oriented pubs. In order to make clean, repeatable beer we had to invest in the best technology, an investment not many start up breweries make. We continue to follow this model in an effort to never compromise the quality of our product. With our brewpubs we plant roots in the community; the community in which we invest and from which hire. This approach helps drive production sales in each market we join.


Saucy is a Beer Manufacturer, Brew Pub, and Community Partner

The Beer

Ohio’s three-tier distribution network allows us to spread our beer love to restaurants, concert venues, bars, and local and regional retail and grocery stores, including Whole Foods Market, Giant Eagle, Heinens, and more on a limited basis. Our goal is to include state-wide relationships with Kroger and Meijer in 2020/2021.  We have a team of four seasoned sales professionals who share a passion for beer. With a breadth of experience pulled from several industries, and a drive to build great relationships, our team creates positive brand experiences in the marketplace. You can find where our beer is sold here.


The Brew Pub

Each of our pubs garner 16+ draft lines, hand-crafted cocktail menus, and full kitchens where we craft New-Haven inspired pizza and a full menu of appetizers and entrees. Our goal is to deliver an amazing experience to everyone who shares a drink or a slice with us. As we add more brew pubs and taprooms, we plan to continue growing our offerings with new menu options, event and membership programming, the list goes on.

The Community


We live by a simple mantra, give until it hurts. Saucy has focused philanthropic efforts including an annual give-back programs, friends and family fundraising, national campaigns, and environmental safety measures. 



In response to COVID-19, our team prepared thousands of meals weekly in partnership with the Cleveland Clinic to provide meals for their staff's families, launched the Cleveland Tip Jar, and began giving free pizza slices to anyone in need of a fresh meal. 


The Beer Market

(Small & Independent U.S. Craft Brewer 2019 Growth in the Beer CategoryBrewers Association)


In 2019, the Craft Beer sector increased Production Volume by approximately 4%, reaching its largest volume share of 13.6% of the U.S. Beer Market. This equates to roughly 26,347,950 Barrels Produced by Craft Brewers in 2019. 


Craft Beer Retail Dollar Value increased 6% in 2019, up to $29.3 billion accounting for more than 25% of the $116.0 billion U.S. Beer Market (source)


Taprooms are beginning to take on a new role in the beer sector in terms of sales and openings. The trend of opening breweries continued in 2019, with an additional 942 openings. Concurrently, there was a 7% growth of Small Brewing Direct Jobs in 2019, 161,007 total. 

Our Market Takeover


Saucy significantly outperformed the overall market by growing production approximately 42% in 2019, increasing significantly in response to a new distributor partnership and greater awareness throughout the state of Ohio. 


The notion of the taproom, growing as a large sector of beer sellers, helps support the Company’s expansion plans in 2020 and beyond. With the addition of three brewpubs and a taproom as well as greater production spaces Saucy plans to produce an increase volume by over 80% in 2020. 

From Wall Street to breweries, Saucy co-founders are the masters of many fields

Saucy was built by two people who share a love for craft beer. Co-founder, Brent Zimmerman’s background was investing. He’s spent his years working for a large mutual fund company, taking on Wall Street investment firms, and owns a long/short Credit Hedge Fund.  After an idea sparked leading to a brewery in the making, he found Eric Anderson, co-founder of Saucy, highly-experienced brewer and biologist. 


Together they work extremely well as a team, filling in each other's gaps, and learning from each other. Between the two, they have decades of experience that lends to building a business in a growing industry. From corporate finance experience, institutional management of billions of dollars of assets and deep understanding of the capital markets, to biochemics, machinery and expertise in various beer recipes and generation, these two have created a business that goes beyond the simple startup. 

We are ready

Saucy has already shown we can make beer and provide a customer experience that can hang with the best of 'em. We pride ourselves in good, beer, good times, and a Saucy atmosphere. 


Now that we have our foundation set, we believe we will be on a trajectory of sustainable growth. Between our geographical expansion, our new distribution relationships in place, and our excellent staff, we would love for you to join the Saucy Posse. 


While we know there is a lot of hard work remaining, our team is ready to make the Sauce.

Introducing Juicy ASAP; Core Can Update

about 2 months ago

We knew we wanted to switch up our core IPA, nothing over-the-top, but just a little extra juice. Introducing Juicy ASAP. It took a few tries, but we finally nailed the recipe with Mosaic, Centennial, Citra, and a little Idaho7. What you'll taste is tropical fruit flavors, a fresh citrus squeeze, and an IPA so juicy, it's almost too easy to chug. This will be available in 6-packs and our brand new 12-packs at select retailers.

And since we already changed the packaging on Love You, Bye, we figured why not complete the trifecta. Habituale has a new can as well. Same great flavor, fresh new look. As always, you can find our beer at a retailer near you at the following link https://www.saucybrewworks.com/beer-finder/. And, don’t forget investors receive 5-10% orders at our brewpubs and taproom.


Detroit Construction Update

2 months ago

As promised with the extension of our campaign, we wanted to share an update on the construction of our Detroit brewpub and coffeehouse and have included a few pictures below. We are grateful to be partnering with Bedrock Detroit to lease our space in the new City Modern (Brush Park) development. This location is perfect for us given it is within walking distance of events at Ford Field, Comerica Park and Little Caesar’s Arena. And while the bar is still a work-in-progress, we cannot wait to share a socially-distanced pizza and brew with all of you! Our current timeline has the expected completion in mid- to late- November. Continue to follow us on Instagram or at the following link, https://www.saucybrewworks.com/detroit-brewpub/ for more updates as we get closer to opening. See you soon, Detroit!

Update on Investor Perks

2 months ago

As many of you have seen, we have elected to extend our campaign by 60 days to allow for additional investors to join our team. And while we have been advised to not disburse all perks until the campaign has closed, we know some of you have been waiting patiently for these perks since early June so, we will start acknowledging the in-store discounts (see list of perks starting below) on Thursday, October 1st! The only thing that we ask is that you have the stock certificate pulled up on your phone, or printed out if easier for you, so that our bartenders can verify that you are an investor. Once the campaign closes we will be distributing ownership cards to make this easier but did not want to hold back on having you all visit us at our brewpubs.

As a reminder all perks are stacked, meaning if you invested in Tier 4, you will receive all perks from Tiers 1 – 4 below. For those who invested in the higher tiers, we cannot wait to fulfill the merchandise rewards you have earned and those will be distributed shortly after the campaign ends but, again, we did not want to stop you from coming in an enjoying your in-store discounts at the lower tiers as soon as possible!

Tier 1: 5% off purchases from the brewpub,

Tier 2: 10% off on all merchandise purchases,

Tier 3: 10% off all purchases from the brewpub, and

Tier 4: $2 growler fills


Campaign Extended; Milestone Reached!

2 months ago

1,050 investors and counting! Because of the outpouring of support we’ve received, we have decided to extend our campaign for another 60 days! By doing this, we are able to continue to provide construction updates on both our Columbus and Detroit brewpubs, share exciting brand updates and continue to bring in more investors who share our passion for craft beer.

To our current investors who have invested within the last week. StartEngine will ask you to reconfirm your investment within six days as required by the SEC. We can reassure there have been no material changes to our business plan and we are on-track to continue with the opening our new brewpubs. We only wanted to offer more time for our community of passionate beer lovers to join the Saucy team. Please continue to share this opportunity with friends, family and co-workers. The more investors, turned brand ambassadors, that we have, the more likely we are to continue our growth. We cannot thank you all enough and are eagerly anticipating the start of our tiered perk disbursement for you all.

Cheers!

Casa Lager Release

3 months ago

This Saturday we're celebrating the release of a very special beer made in loving memory of our Saucy member, Kevin O'Boyle.

Kevin's family (pictured) joined our team to brew this special beer, adding their signature touches along the way. Before visiting the brewery, they confirmed his love for our hometown Cleveland Browns, so we knew we had to create a style to honor his favorite day - game day. We're so glad to finally share it with all of our Cleveland friends, and hope you all will join us at the pub and taproom to enjoy a pour.

All net proceeds will be donated to CASA of Cuyahoga County - Child and Family. CASA of Cuyahoga was started by Kevin and is an essential advocate of those in need. To learn more about this charity, please click the following link: https://cfadvocates.org/donate-now

Casa Lager: Light and crisp with clean notes of fresh citrus, and a classic malt finish. Refreshing and perfect for tailgates.
