Women in Business 2024: Ali Drozdowicz of Quenched & Tempered


1210 Jackson St. 



Quenched & Tempered Brewing Co. has been brewing and distributing all over NW Ohio since 2019. In August 2022, they opened their first public taproom, which is a relaxed brewpub with a comfortable craftsman vibe, featuring 24 taps with original brews as well as gluten free and non-alcoholic beverage options. Quenched & Tempered also has a kitchen with creative food options every day and a private event space upstairs available for parties, classes and meetings. They recently opened an outdoor beer garden space, which will continue to grow. Owner Ali Drozdowicz talked about her routine, advice for women and building Quenched & Tempered.

Morning: Get up before my family, drink tea, read and have quiet time. Get some work done. Make breakfast for my kids, get them started on school (we homeschool) and head to the taproom to get things started.

Work: Spend about 30 minutes checking everything and setting up the atmosphere. Prepare for whatever event we have that night. Interact with customers, occasionally bartend, oversee the space.

Evening: Get home late, snuggle my kids (if they’re not asleep). Read with my husband.

“My life has gotten where it is because of unexpected opportunities. I would encourage young women to explore unexpected opportunities and see what they have to hold.”
