–Monday, May 12, 6pm – Bell’s Quinnannan Falls Tapping – Only 4 kegs allocated to the state of Ohio – Quinannan Falls possesses the crisp, dry bitterness you’d expect from a German pilsner, but the use of highly aromatic hops from the Pacific Northwest in both the kettle & dry-hop evokes the fragrant pine forests that inspired this beer.
–Tuesday, May 13, 6pm – Thirsty Dog Ankle Biter Tapping – The first time this beer is being tapped outside of Akron – Ankle Biter is the brewery’s first session IPA. It is dry-hopped with Mosaic hops .
–Wednesday May 14, 6pm – Jackie O’s Oil of Aphrodite Tapping– One of Jackie O’s rarest, highly rated and sought after brews – Oil of Aphrodite is an American double stout brewed with locally harvested black walnuts from Integration Acres and Belgian candied syrup. English, German, American, and Belgian malts are accompanied by pacific northwest hops, creating a sweet and rich spring board for deep nuttiness. Lay this beer down for a while and share with friends and loved ones.
