Local Businesses Play Role in Community Events

March 24, 2021
The Square

Many of the community’s favorite events will return this summer bringing neighbors together and shining a light on local non-profits and businesses.


West Chester Township partners with non-profits to host the community’s largest summer events, including the Rotary Club of West Chester/Liberty, the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty and the Union Centre Boulevard Merchant Association. These non-profits rely on local business sponsorship to raise money for their respective causes.


The Takeover presented by First Financial Bank returns this summer supporting the non-profits that benefit from beer sales, as well as West Chester’s beer business community – Ohio Eagle, Dogberry and Grainworks.


Ohio Eagle Distributing, based on Allen Road in West Chester, distributes domestic, imported and craft beers to nine southwest Ohio counties selling about 4.5 million cases of beer annually. Ohio Eagle’s beer truck can be found at every Takeover concert serving several brews to concert attendees. Learn more about Ohio eagle at


West Chester’s two craft breweries can also be found at The Takeover each week.


Grainworks Brewing Company operates a taproom and event space at its Service Center Drive location in West Chester; and throughout the summer joins the fun on The Square. Grainworks started as a home brewing project among friends and became a business with specialty brews that celebrate Cincinnati’s rich brewing heritage and honor great community organization like the VOA Museum and Lakota Schools.

The summer isn’t complete without Dogberry Brewing. A bunch of guys who love what they do started brewing beer and opened a small taproom and gathering spot on Crescent Park Drive in West Chester. The owners brew a variety of craft brews to enjoy in their taproom or take home and operate an “organic” space with customers/family stopping in to enjoy food trucks and beer. Dogberry is also a supporter of the community with various fundraisers and they are often present on the Square for The Takeover. Learn more about the Dogberry story at


The Takeover is a free concert series hosted each summer on The Square @ Union Centre. Concerts are on Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m. Watch for 2021 concert start dates and schedules at Concerts will likely begin in July.
