Route 33 Rhythm and Brews Club History
The last of a dying breed, Route 33 Rhythm and Brews
is a World War II-era rural highway roadhouse that is situated on the outskirts
of Wapakoneta, OH near the corner of "old 33" and Kettlersville Rd. The building
has undergone several amalgamations over the last half-century but since
1997, under the passionate guidance of proprietors Ron and Terry Lininger, it
has served as the premier small entertainment club in Northwest Ohio. The club's
reputation as providing the "best in national touring entertainment in an
intimate setting" is more than just a catchy slogan. Performers at the club have
credentials that include performances on the Grand Ole Opry, Late Night with
Conan O'Brien, The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn,
Comedy Central "Premium Blend," and HBO. Rhythm and Brews is the ideal space for
any type of performance. The club
capacity at less than 200 for music and comedy shows features ample floor space and
three-tiered booth seating to ensure visibility.
Rhythm & Brews also features a full-service kitchen and food delivery business, which is open Tuesday-Saturday 4 p.m. to close. The pizza at Rhythm & Brews has gained nationwide fame and performers, such as Walter Trout, have it highlighted (literally!) in their tour notes.
