We’re Open for Business


The moment you’ve been waiting for is here!  We’re open, and here’s a peek at what’s in store for you when you visit The Battleground, a social justice taproom and Mexican kitchen in Kent, Ohio.

In case you haven’t heard, we officially opened to the public!  We’re serving up social justice beers and amazing tacos to Kent, Ohio! For our official hours and location, visit HERE.

You’ve never see tacos quite like this before.
If the word “taco” means ground beef and wilted lettuce, think again!  At The Battleground, our tacos are made from grilled premium skirt steaks, pork, and chicken.  We also have grilled mushroom options for vegans and vegetarians.  Taco Tuesday just took a big jump in quality and flavor!

In addition to tacos, you can enjoy pozole, elote, guacamole, and salsas–all with bold, real Mexican flavors!

We’re a Social Justice Taproom
Yes, we have amazing signature cocktails like our own Battleground Magarita and Mint Martini, but at the heart of our mission lies our social justice beers.  Crafted by Ohio brewery Modern Methods, our DYV (Drink Your Values) craft beers promise great flavor and community building.

To us, a better community means addressing climate change, replacing incarceration with addiction treatment and recovery programs, ensuring the LGBTQ community enjoys equal rights,…and more.  In short, we believe in supporting and building a community that strives for social, econmic, and racial justice for all.

We hope you’ll join us soon to enjoy some great beer, food, and community building soon.  We’re located on the South Side of Kent at 425 Cherry Street.  We have easy parking, and a great atmosphere.  Hope to see you soon!
