Sam Adams brewery highlights revitalization in the West End

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The City of Cincinnati and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency highlighted the clean-up and revitalization projects at the Sam Adams brewery in the West End.

The Samuel Adams Brewing Company has made a significant contribution in the redemption of the area surrounding the brewery by staying in the area and expanding its operations.

Samuel Adams, the City of Cincinnati and the State of Ohio have committed to cleaning up the contaminated area around the Samuel Adams Brewery. The properties known as Providence North and Calmego West will be cleaned up and once cleaned up it will allow Sam Adams to expand its operations. The properties will be going through Ohio's Voluntary Action Program (VAP).

"They could have chose to stay here and be landlocked, or to expand and take some risk, or to move out of the state and they chose not to do that," said Ohio EPA Director Scott Nally. "We encourage things like this and what a better time than in an Earth Day celebration."

The State of Ohio provided two "Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund" grants worth more than $3.6 million help the project.
