Derive Brewing Company was founded in 2016 by Luke Sherrill, Peter Steffes and Mike Coates as a nomad brewery specializing in lesser known and scarcely brewed styles such as clean barrel-aged beers. Peter Steffes is a Food Scientist and Luke Sherrill is a Certified Master Brewer from the world renowned Siebel Institute. Steffes and Sherrill met while honing their skills at one of Columbus’s oldest craft breweries and the concept for Derive was quickly born. Derive Brewing Craft Beer and Kitchen, nestled in the heart of eclectic Clintonville, was opened in August of 2020. Derive specializes in hazy IPAs, saisons, and other more esoteric beer styles.
