The Hills Have… Cans!
Several southeast Ohio breweries are gearing up for can releases this coming week. Roll through the hills of Appalachia and stock up on craft beer to enjoy at the Thanksgiving table:
DankHouse Brewing is releasing five beers in cans next week, including the dessert treat-inspired Little Dabbie oatmeal cream pie stout and Stay Puffed Pumpkin P’High sour ale made with pumpkin and marshmallow. Fans of DankHouse hazy IPAs can pick up fresh cans of Superfantastic, Hop Pocket and Dank Skywalka. Cans are expected to be ready for carry out by Thursday, Nov. 17, but give DankHouse a follow on social media for confirmation.
That’s Shanty… With a “T”
Buckeye Lake Brewery‘s seasonal taproom favorite Winter Shanty is making its debut in cans this year. This traditional Ohio-style Christmas ale (yeah, we’re just going to make that a thing now) pours a delightful amber color and is appropriately spiced with cinnamon and ginger. Stop in at the brewery taproom in Buckeye Lake to enjoy a pint – optional cinnamon and sugar rimmed glass available – and grab a six pack to take home. Details at facebook.com/buckeyelakebrewery
Just Razzin’ Ya
If you’re an old school Ohio craft beer fan, you’ve surely knocked back a few Razz Wheats from Jackie O’s. The fruited wheat beer dates back to the original Athens brewpub days, before Jackie O’s grew their production capacity and distribution footprint to become one of Ohio’s most beloved beer makers (side note: check out this oral history of Jackie O’s from owner Art Oestrike at ohiose.com.)
Razz Wheat disappeared from the brewery’s core lineup for a little while, but fear not: this classic beer is back in freshly updated cans designed by Bryn Perrott. You can pick up a six pack from Jackie O’s locations in Athens now, or look for it starting this week on store shelves throughout Ohio. More details at instagram.com/jackieosbrewery
One of Ohio’s smallest craft breweries – and one of the newest members of the Ohio Craft Brewers Association – Nobleman Brewing does things a little differently than modern brewery hoppers may be used to. Located on the top of a hill north of Caldwell in Noble County, the brewery makes its beer 30 gallons at a time and doesn’t have a public taproom. How do you try their beer, you ask? You call or text owner/brewer Mark Feldner and schedule an appointment to purchase cans for carry out. Right now, Nobleman is taking orders for variety packs of their four wheat beers: American Wheat, Mango Wheat, Blood Orange Wheat and German Hefeweizen.
