Big Grove Brewery, located at 101 W. Main Street, wants to put Solon on both the culinary and craft beer maps when it opens today (8/28/13). “The town wants to lay a claim to this place, it is ‘our place,’ and that is what we are trying to be,” says Mathew Swift, a co-owner of Big Grove Brewery who is also part owner of Red’s Alehouse in North Liberty. With Solon’s population hovering around 2,000 people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, though, Big Grove is going to have to be a destination for residents of other Corridor communities to be successful.
