The good folks at Listermann/Triple Digit just passed the flyer for their Cincinnati Beer Week events. It looks like they’ll be up to no good (I kid, I kid) every day of the week, so make sure you get your butts to at least one of their events. I’m sure these will eventually be up on the Cincinnati Beer Week site (which now contains next to no information), but that day is apparently not yet here, so feast your eyes below.

Here’s one from the folks at Triple Digit Brewing Co. to keep an eye out for. You can see my review for the original Aftermath here. You don’t see aging in rum barrels as much as bourbon/whiskey (or even brandy), so this is quite intriguing. You can bet your bottom dollar you’ll be seeing a review from yours truly when this is released. As for details, this has been in rum barrels since July and it is on the time frame most barrel-aged beers are on: it will be ready when it’s ready. Regardless, I’ll get you more updates when there are some to report!

phenolics of a Belgian and the hop profile of a IPA.

Here’s a cool video (via Youtube) that’s been making the rounds on Facebook. It provides a behind-the-scenes look at Listermann and Triple Digit Brewing. It’s only four minutes, so give it a look. It’s cool to see a local brewery doing this; I’d like to see more of it from Cincinnati’s up and coming craft beer scene!
On a recent family get together I was talking with my brother-in-law’s brother-in-law about local beers in our respective areas. It got me thinking that I wish Cincinnati brewers would get together and make a Cincinnati 6-pack. Something like this http://cincyfavorites.com/, but with beer. Now I’m relatively sure that there may be laws preventing such a thing, but I could always go to a bottle shop and build one myself.
I had been meaning to snag a bottle of Triple Digit Brewing’s (brought to you from the folks from Listermann) since I read it was being distributed to local stores.
