“It’s crazy to think that four years ago Dayton didn’t have a single operating brewery,” Brian Johnson, Organizer said. “Even more amazing is the quality of all of breweries that have popped up since then. Whether you like hoppy, dark, experimental or a more traditional style, it’s being brewed here and it’s being brewed well.”
Each ticket for BEER! is good for a 13 – 6oz pours and serves as your vote in the coveted “Dayton’s Best Brewery, People Choice Awards.” Defending champs Hairless Hare Brewery beat out 2014 years champ, Fifth Street Brewpub, by just 7 votes. The beers the winning Vandalia brewery served up were Hoppicrisy Session IPA 5.2 ABV, IBU 64 and Strawberry Saison ABV 7.7, IBU 19. Can’t wait to see what they come up with this year. Springboro’s Crooked Handle will be a new addition to this years competitors. Read more about last years event here.
“It’s fun to see what people are up to,” Johnson said. “There are a number of brewpub favorites showcased, but there have also been a few surprises just for this event.”
BEER! is about more than just great local suds though, with live music, food trucks and an official after party at Yellow Cab. Participating breweries for BEER! include all 13 Dayton local breweries. All breweries are subject to change.
