Mittenfest 2021

This Week in Beer: January 18-24, 2021

A quick reminder: To be included on our This Week in Beer listing, the event must be beer-focused. For example, a yoga session that just happens to be held in the brewery is not beer-focused. But a yoga session bundled with a pint of beer at a brewery is beer-focused. Many locations are still doing trivia, live music, and the like so check out their websites for more information on those types of events. While in the past, we only listed events here that are unique for this coming week in beer, we will be listing weekly or monthly events until further notice.

Monday, January 18th from 3:00-10:00 pm – All Day Happy Hour and Pizza Special at Darkness Brewing: $4 and $5 (normally $5 and $6) on all Darkness draft beers; starting at 5:00 pm, $10 for any 12″ specialty pizza from Newport Pizza Company delivered for free right to your seat.

Wednesday, January 20th from 5:00-8:00 pm – Beer and Donut Pairing at Taft’s Brewporium: Tickets are $12 for a flight of four different beers paired with four donuts from Peace, Love + Little Donuts. Ticketholders also get a wristband for $1 off pints for the day of the event. Each ticket is good for a one-hour time slot to comply with social distancing. Pairings are S’mores Donut + Cherrywood Amber Ale, Powdered Sugar Donut + Maverick Chocolate Porter, Blueberry Pancake Donut + Nellie’s Lemon Frosty Ale, and Coffee & Cream Donut + Beautiful Harmony English Mild Ale. Tickets are $12. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to the event’s EventBrite page.

Wednesday, January 20th from 6:30-8:00 pm – Humble Hounds at Humble Monk Brewing: A weekly canine week-up with Cincinnati Animal Care to find permanent homes for rescues introduced each Wednesday. Bring your own pup or find out how you can foster a rescue. Pet items like treats and toys can be donated in the taproom collection box. $1 of every draft pint consumed at Humble Monk on Humble Hounds night is donated to Cincinnati Animal Care.

Thursday, January 21st from 5:00-10:00 pm – Beer-It-Forward Thursday at Dead Low Brewing: Pre-purchase a pint or growler for a future guest who is active military or a veteran or who is a first responder, healthcare worker, teacher, or service industry worker.

MadTree – Meet the Brewery Pint Night

From Facebook:

We are kicking off the weekend early with a tap takeover from our friends at MadTree Brewing. Starting at 6PM we’ll be tapping:

Dreamsicle
Blood Orange Psychopathy
Sowing Season

Starting around 7PM, representatives from MadTree will be around to give a short talk and answer any questions you might have. Stop down to say hello and grab a pint.

It’s September now, which means we have a new charity on deck. We will be working with Happen, Inc. throughout this month, donating 10% of ALL draft sales. They are a local Northside organization that does a lot of really great work in the community. So stop on by to grab a pint and support a good cause. If you want to learn more check out their site: http://www.happeninc.com/about

Pilgrim Can Release supporting La Soupe

From Facebook:

Sip some Pilgrim, support La Soupe, and sample the new Pilgrim Cranberry Mountain cookie from Busken Bakery!

Pilgrim is finally available in cans to share the cranberry and vanilla goodness with friends and family this Fall. A portion of the proceeds of all sales of Pilgrim cans, shirts, and posters will be donated to La Soupe.

You can also try the new cookie from Busken that was inspired by Pilgrim’s ‘Thanksgiving in a glass’ flavor. The hearty Pilgrim Cranberry Mountain cookie contains chopped walnuts, cranberries, and bittersweet chocolate chips with a subtle vanilla finish.

Headed by Chef Suzy DeYoung, La Soupe is bridging the gap between food waste and hunger. They rescue “ugly” and over-ordered perishable food to create delicious and highly-nutritious meals for food-insecure families. A small percentage of soup is sold to paying customers and sales of the meals fuel our donations to Cincinnati’s food-deprived individuals. La Soupe is a non-profit organization that relies on soup sales and individual donations to operate.

Dreamsicle Can Release Party

From Facebook:

Who knew an April Fool’s joke would create such a stir! After years of asking, begging, launching petitions, and some people getting downright angry — cans of Dreamsicle are finally here!

Stock up for Labor Day weekend with cans of this dreamy orange and vanilla kölsch. Limit one case per person. $10.50 per six-pack, tax included.
