Inside the Five's Story: 

Once upon a time there was an offensive lineman at Michigan State University named Chris Morris. One day, coach said “Hey Chris, will you show Brandon Fields, a prospective punter, around campus during his official visit?” Chris responded, “No! I have nothing in common with a punter!”. Brandon and Chris did not become friends that day, but they would eventually. After college Chris went on to have an NFL career with the Oakland Raiders, and Brandon with the Miami Dolphins. Fast forward a decade, and they both retire and settle down with their families in the Midwest. And come to find out, they do have something in common, love for CRAFT BEER! Chris, Brandon, and his wife Katie opened Inside the Five Brewing in 2018 in Downtown Sylvania, expanding the craft beer scene while joining an energetic and enthusiastic community.

Because of it’s success and a great opportunity, Inside the Five opened its second location November of 2020 in Downtown Perrysburg. Not long after, the brewpub outgrew their brewing space. In 2023, all production was moved to a new facility in Toledo. Their 5 barrel system became a 20 barrel system and the expansion allowed for the addition of a canning line. They now distribute to over 400 bars, restaurants, and carry outs.

With the love for craft beer continuing to spread, Inside the Five decided to open a new taproom located at their production facility in February 2024. The Fieldhouse offers over 20 original beers, ciders, and seltzers, a schedule of rotating food trucks, and the chance to experience a taste of the brewing production.
