  1. BlackTart—Collaboration Brew (Canned by MadTree)—Cincinnati, OH

BlackTart Stout is a collaborative effort among fifteen Cincinnati, Ohio breweries as part of the celebration during Cincinnati Beer Week. An amalgamation of breweries. A dichotomous combination of flavors. Tart and refreshing yet full bodies and malty. It’s not black magic, it’s BlackTart. Brewed with cinnamon, lactose, and blackberries.

ABV- 8%

IBU-18

  1. Milk Stout Nitro—Left Hand Brewing Co.—Longmont, CA

Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. The pillowy head coats your upper lip and its creaminess entices your pallet. Initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up, with slight hop & roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bliss of milk chocolate fullness.

ABV – 6%

IBU – 25

  1. A Little Crazy—Revolution Brewing Co.—Chicago, IL

A citrusy and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale hopped with Cascade, Citra, and whole Crystal hops for massive aromas and flavors! Fermented with Belgian Wit yeast for an extra dose of

complexity, this seasonal brew is very drinkable and extremely aromatic.

ABV – 6.8%

IBU – 35

  1. Sunshine Daydream—Fat Head’s Brewery –Middleburg, OH

The newest beer from one of our favorite Ohio breweries is a hoppy, refreshing session drinker. This bright golden colored brew offers aromas of tropical fruit and pine, along with a juicy citrusy blast on your palate. Finishes with a lingering dry bitterness.

ABV—4.9%

IBU—60

See you tonight!

While Cincinnati Beer Week isn’t until the week of February 13-22, the collaboration brew Black Tart is out and being consumed around the city as we speak!

Canned by MadTree, but collaborated on by 15 breweries in the Cincinnati area, Black Tart is an American stout brewed with cinnamon, lactose and blackberries. It’s got a lot of interesting flavors going on and weighs in at 8.0% ABV and 18 IBUs.

We have a feeling this brew is gonna go quickly so be sure to stop in and grab a four-pack today! Later this week we’ll also be getting special Cincinnati Beer Week glasses that we will be selling in the store, so keep an eye on our social media accounts!

Food for thought: How upcoming elections could affect craft beer biz

 

“…A substantial increase in Ohio’s sales tax, or an increase in the state’s commercial activity tax on businesses’ sales, would hurt craft breweries’ growth, owners say. So here’s how the November state elections will affect your favorite brewery and other small businesses like it.”
