Old City Soda Promotes Going Local and Natural

Former Cleveland bartender Michael ‘Mike’ Gulley isn’t tending bar anymore.¬† This self-proclaimed owner/soda maker is about to launch Northeast Ohio’s first micro soda company, Old City Soda.

The concept for his business was based on the popularity of a Ginger Beer he created while working at The Fairmount Martini and Wine Bar in Cleveland Heights.

Today, with a product line that includes a classic, old-fashioned tonic, Ginger Beer, Grapefruit Soda, Hibiscus Rose Petal, Strawberry Ginger Beer, Blueberry and Strawberry and Lime sodas, Gulley is poised to make a major statement at local restaurants and bars.

“I’ve been doing a lot of networking and have already lined up a number of clients,” he concedes.¬† With a distribution license pending, Gulley is planning to follow up his restaurant efforts with entry into the retail market by year-end. He hopes to eventually expand into the Pittsburgh and Columbus markets.
