The Peerless Mill site was established in 1828. The existing mill building was the sawmill and the adjacent parking lot was the site of the gristmill. Both of the mills were powered with the waters from the Miami & Erie Canal. The sawmill was converted into a restaurant in 1929. The Peerless Gristmill ceased operations in 1938 and the old structure was razed. As of 1988, the Peerless Sawmill is now known as the Peerless Mill Inn. A visit to the restaurant allows you to appreciate the historic structure. The old mill building has a flagstone floor. The interior of the building exhibits the structure's huge hand-hewn beams. The restaurant also has 4 beautiful, large, stone fireplaces. The building is no longer used as a mill but the structure has been maintained and is open to the public to visit. It is a great place to incorporate on a trip for lunch or dinner. ("Peerless Mill Inn.") As of July 2012, the Peerless Mill Gristmill / Inn is closed. The display waterwheel is gone and the multiple buildings are vacant. Today, 2018, the old mill is occupied as an exciting brewery.

The historic setting and friendly staff make it a comfortable place to enjoy a beer. I had their IPA and Session IPA. I liked them both but I would give nod to the Session IPA. I also had a sample of their saison. I will be back for a full glass some other time. At 7%ABV it would have been too much on top of the two IPAs. It is well worth a trip.

Quick stop for a cold drink after walking the cruise in. Always a favorite place for a beer and for the folks that don't drink alcohol try the butter beer or cream soda!

Best beer in Dayton. Blows warped wing out of the water. Atmosphere is way cool. Hopefully they can get the kitchen working again for food some day. Fortunately Rons pizza is right around the corner.
