This weekend saw the 3rd King of Ohio competition happen at Thirsty Dog in Akron. The first year Hoof Hearted’s Musk of the Minotaur won King of the Ohio IPA, the second year Streetside’s Raspberry Beret won King of the Ohio Session Beer. For the third year, we searched for the King of the Ohio Stout. I teamed up with Rick Armon, from the Akron Beacon Journal and author of 50 Must-Try Craft Beers of Ohio, again but unfortunately, our third conspirator, Patrick Woodward of Pat’s Pints, was unable to partake this year.
Earlier this week we had the pleasure of stopping by FigLeaf Brewing Co., to talk about their big upcoming anniversary party. In between sampling tasty beers, we talked about their bridging the gap between Cincinnati and Dayton, how distribution is working out for them, their wealth of beer styles and so much more.
Don’t forget to bookmark their anniversary party, and we’ll see you there!
Plus you can check out all our shows at our Brew Minds page on YouTube.
I’ve wanted to spend a day at a brewery learning about mobile canning for some time now. But I was lazy and didn’t want to wake up and drive to a brewery to do this. Luckily, FigLeaf is only a few minutes from home and they had Iron Heart Canning (formerly Buckeye Canning) in today to can their Basmati Cream Ale. I reached out to the owners who foolishly allowed me to come help out for the day, here’s my experience.
TL;DR, I need a nap.
