I have been impatiently dreaming of this day for over a year. I have been eagerly waiting for it for 2 months. I have been loving this day for the past 20 minutes. The following review of MadTree Galaxy High is highly biased. I love this beer. I love that it’s canned. I love that I’m drinking Galaxy High from a can at home.
Canned: Artwork of the Modern American Beer Can is a new craft beer book on the shelves showing off the gorgeous cans of the craft beer industry.
Rhinegeist has made impressive beer in OTR for a few months now and has gone through a variety of beers and styles but Truth was one of their launch beers and has remained part of the core lineup. When they announced they were canning this beer was clearly going to be one of the first to be distributed. Now you can find 6-packs of 12 oz. cans of Turth and Cougar across the greater Cincinnati area. Stores are selling out within a day or two after getting it so follow your favorite store like @Lovelandcappys to know as soon as it comes in. Here’s the brief blurb that Rhinegeist has for this beer:
Intensely hopped, dry IPA with Centennial, Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe hops. We hop this at a rate of 3lbs/bbl to rev up peach, mango, and passionfruit notes.
MadTree Brewing has been around town for a few months now but only this week did they start canning their beer. As of the time this post is going up they only have PsycHOPathy canned but Gnarly Brown and Happy Amber will be filling the aluminium sometime in the next week or two. Shortly after that, around mid-April, you’ll start seeing the cans pop-up around town! If you’re like me and impatient though then head on down to the brewery for a pint on draft and a 6-pack ($10) to take home!
If you follow other Cinci beer blogs, you’ve no doubt already heard lots this week about MadTree. They’ve been on a bit of a beer blog spree which is great news for them and our fellow beer bloggers! That said I’m not going to focus too much on the brewery, if you want that info, please check out our friend Brew Prof’s post: MadTree cans roll off the line and make history. He did a fantastic job on that, and there is only one thing he’s missing a beer review! [Ed. note: three years after writing this, Brew Prof is now MadTree’s
HR manager Director – People and Social Strategy.]
