Stone Laboratory In The News

Stone Laboratory at Put-in-Bay is the oldest freshwater biological field station in the United States (1929).

Stone Labs is both a campus for Ohio State University and site for Ohio Sea Grant studies. It has been central to much Great Lakes research. Stone Lab is scenic with a natural arch, “Eye of the Needle,” and Perry’s Lookout from the Battle of Lake Erie. That research assumed more than regular importance when Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) rocketed into international news recently. HAB toxins were shutting off drinking water to 400,000 residents in the Toledo area back in 2014. read more

Local Brewery on Put-in-Bay? Yes!

The Put-in-Bay Brewery & Distillery, located on South Bass Island in Lake Erie, underwent a massive remodeling over last winter. The changes were so dramatic that many returning guests admitted that they were confused.

Co-owner and brewer Carl Krueger shared that the brewpub, which opened in 1996 and is in a former firehouse, was in line for a much-needed update, especially to keep up with other bars on the island that have done significant face-lifts over the last several years.

The 8.5-barrel Price-Schonstrom brewing system was moved upstairs and out of sight, while the bar was extended, new booths and furniture were added, a tin ceiling was installed. Stones now form an attractive wall behind the bar. Krueger estimated that they invested anywhere from $400,000 to $500,000 in the remodeling. read more
