About Us

Sons of Toil is a brewery and taproom in Mt. Orab, with 20 beers and 4 ciders. Ingredients are sourced locally for a couple of the beers with grain coming from Rustic Brew farm in Marysville, OH and hops from Scott Farms in Georgetown, OH. 

Sons of Toil is family and pet friendly. Although pets are not allowed in the taproom, there is a covered back porch and large tent that is open in the summer and enclosed and heated in the winter. 

Many fun activities are offered throughout the week such as Singo and Trivia. There is also a farmers market every Saturday.  Live music is scheduled at least once per week.  Check the website or Facebook for info on all events.

Sons of Toil has recently opened their kitchen, open every day for lunch at 11:30.  Check the schedule for closing times and scheduled food trucks.

We welcome you to come and check out what we have to offer and enjoy the many activities.

The Inspiration to our name

In reading the History of Brown County we came across this passage which became the inspiration of our name.  Our family like many in this area came from a long line of farmers who made their living through hard work and sacrifice.


"Green Township was slow in being peopled and improved; the land from Greenbush up to the northern boundary line comprising fully one-half of its acreage, is very flat and level, and was for years very swampy.  The lands of Green have been ditched and drained, and now compare favorably in productive quality to any of Brown County. The old pioneer foreigners will leave a goodly heritage for their sons and daughters to enjoy.

All honor is due to those horny handed Sons of Toil, who left their native land and crossed the ocean, cast their lot in the swamp lands of Green Township, and by hard labor and unceasing toil, have made it what it now is."
