It’s officially time to start getting excited about October’s Cleveland Beer Week!
Why? The answer is simple – today, we got our first look at the Buckeye Brewing Company’s Cleveland Beer Week “special brew” for 2011. Buckeye has produced a special beer for each of the first two CBW’s, so it’s no surprise they are back for year three. Yep, we’re getting close to that magical October week that is like your Beer Birthday and Beer Christmas rolled into one. It’s just around the corner, closer than it seems. The week when Cleveland becomes THE premier craft beer destination in the world…
Cleveland Beer Week!
Here’s what the label looks like:
This ‘Hoppy Altbier’ is a bit of a departure from past styles given the Germanic spin, but the hoppiness follows nicely in the footsteps of the special beers that brewmaster Garin Wright produced for the inaugural and second annual Cleveland Beer Weeks:
- 2010 – India-Style Black Ale
- 2009 – Indian Brown
More news about a release date will be coming soon. If the last few years are any indication, expect to see this beer on the shelves in the next month. It should be available at Heinen’s Supermarkets, on tap at many Cleveland Beer Week events and all over town, wherever better beer is sold.
