BREWERY OF THE MONTH
Railroad Brewing Company
LORAIN – Corbin Schlater was one semester shy of entering a pre-med program. With a background in Exercise Physiology, he chose to also pursue his affection for craft beer.
“I’m kind of a science nerd. This started as a passion of mine. I went from loving to drink craft beer to making it my career,” Corbin said.
Corbin Schlater, head brewer at Railroad Brewing Company
Schlater now serves as the Head Brewer at Railroad Brewing Company in Lorain, named one of Cleveland’s Top Craft Breweries on RivalryBrews.com.
“This wasn’t my fulltime gig,” Schlater added. He began working at Railroad in 2020 having been a “home brewer” for years. He and his wife Christy also are publishers of an online craft beer blog. “They gave me the opportunity to step up” in May as head brewer, he said.
Railroad’s 13th Warrior is a German-style brew and stands as one of the original craft beers since the brewery’s founding.
The commemorative can denotes the following:
"Our award-winning Hefeweizen is dedicated to the memory of a local hero, Drew M. Ferguson. In the ROTC at Ohio University, Drew graduated 13th out of 4,000 cadets. His classmates nicknamed him the “13th Warrior. This moniker carried over with his service in the U.S. Special Forces. His fellow Green Berets continued calling him the “13th Warrior.” Raise a glass in honor of Drew!"
This one-of-a-kind brew is available for direct shipping on RivalryBrews.com
While paying homage the Railroad’s legacy brands, Schlater admits to having infused the brewery with many new craft tastes and taps. The Lorain County brewery is known for it’s popular selling “Barefoot Blonde” Ale. It’s Oil Can Chocolate Porter is also highly rated and offers a rich, black color and true, decadent, chocolate aroma and taste.
Railroad Brewing Company has a full schedule of events, often featuring live music and local food trucks.
