First Four Pours



All this week FSB becomes For Sure, Basketball all tournament long. And to help Dayton get its Hoopla on, we’re bringing back our original lineup. Get a flight of all four (Ramona, Ice Breaker, Cure-All Cream, and Deluge) for just $5. Then vote for your favorite. It’s that simple!

Loyalty Tapping – Wednesday, March 15th

Join Member-Owner Helen Goad this Wednesday at 6 p.m. for a loyalty tapping! She will tap a keg of FSB’s very own Ice Breaker IPA. Pours will be $1 off during this loyalty tapping. Thanks for your patronage and loyalty, Helen! #iownabrewpub

You may be wondering, “Hey, how can I do a loyalty tapping?” and that is a great question! As a member-owner of Fifth Street Brewpub Co-op, every dollar you spend equals one loyalty point. At 150 points you can earn a penny beer (because it’s against the law to give away “free” beer). 300 points earns a free food special. Earn 400 points and you’ll get a $15 FSB gift certificate. The loyalty tapping is available at 600 points. The points are tracked using your membership card, so make sure you bring your card when you visit.

Open Early – Thursday, March 16th

Kick of the first full day of March Madness at FSB. We will open at 11 a.m. serving drinks and cold appetizers. Games start at 12:15 p.m. with Notre Dame vs. Princeton. Full kitchen service will begin at 4 p.m.

St. Patrick’s Day and UD Flyers Game – Friday, March 17th

It should be a colorful evening at FSB this Friday. Feel free to mix your St. Patrick’s Day green with Flyers red and blue because we’re celebrating both. Honor St. Patrick with a pint of RyRish, FSB’s dry Irish Stout. Sip on an Irish Whiskey cocktail. Feast on corned beef and cabbage. Dancers from the Celtic Academy of Irish Dance will be here to get your heart racing with a few jigs at 5 p.m. Then, cheer on the seventh-ranked Dayton Flyers as they take on the tenth-ranked Wichita State Shockers at 7:10 p.m.


Kick the Keg and Growler Fill-Up Wednesday!




Getting over Hump Day just got a little easier, and a lot more fun, thanks to Kick the Keg and Growler Fill-Up Specials at FSB!

Check Facebook every Wednesday & see what Keg we’re kicking. $3 pints while supplies last.


Brunch with Benefits


Our Guest Bartender program started all the way back in November 2013. We’ve had hundreds of different guest bartenders slinging beers and have raised tens of thousands of dollars for local charitable organizations. In fact, the program is so popular that we are completely booked for 2017 and even have dates reserved for 2018. This is huge, guys.

So huge, in fact, that we’ve expanded the program! This Sunday will be the inaugural Brunch with Benefits with Val Beerbower raising money for the AIDS Walk. We’ll offer another opportunity for Guest Bartenders to step behind the bar and raise money for their charities on the first and third Sunday of each month from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. As with the Monday Guest Bartender Program, Brunch with Benefits will raise money in three ways: 5% of our net sales for that time period, 100% of donations collected in tip jars, and $1 from each selected FSB beer sold.

If you are interested in participating in the Brunch with Benefits program, please contact us at

Check out this short movie clip about Fifth Street Brewpub!

Check out this video clip on FSB.

Due to scheduling issues, this clip didn’t make it to final production in time, but you can catch it right here!



Fifth Street Brewpub & Mission of Mary: Cooperation in Action


Your coop is proud to announce our partnership with Mission of Mary Cooperative!

Fifth Street Brewpub is donating spent grains from our brewing process to Mission of Mary. Spent grains are a by-product of the brewing process, leftover husks and grain particles rich in nitrogen and completely biodegradable. Once mixed with grass clippings and leaves they produce a nutrient-rich compost perfect for growing fruits and vegetables.
