The Rail + Rare Ohio Beer + February = FeBREWary

No need to check the math on that equation, FeBREWary is back for a second year. The tried and true formula we came up for last year remains, just with a couple of tweaks.  More beer, more locations and more beer. Wait, did we say more beer twice? Oh well… more beer!

 

Mike Mariola and his battle-tested confidant, John Emerson, are heading south with a trailer to pick up some rare Ohio brew that will only be available at our locations for the month of February. This year, these delectable concoctions of barley and hops won’t just be available at all four Rail locations, but Ohio Beer Garden in North Olmsted and City Square Steakhouse in Wooster as well. That’s right — We put our heads together and thought it would be a good idea for every single one of our restaurants to partake in FeBREWary. Well, that and we got some pretty nasty texts from the bartenders at City Square about not being involved last year… just kidding!

 

So, what’s it all mean? It means that whatever part of Ohio you’re in at the moment means you’ll be closer to tasty, rare Ohio beer you’ve never had before. And that's awesome.
 

Not only are we pumped about Ohio Beer Garden, City Square and The Rail’s Strongsville location being added to the mix, but we’re super stoked about this year’s beer lineup. From Wolf’s Ridge Brewing’s Daybreak Cream Ale to Zaftig Brewing’s Wee Heavy Scotch Ale, FeBREWary’s draft lineup has been handpicked by the folks here at The Rail and is nothing short of pure deliciousness. Let’s take a look at the current selections:

 

FeBREWary Beers Available at The Rail locations:

Wolf’s Ridge Brewing Driftwood IPA — 4.6% ABV — 50 IBU — A session IPA with citrus, passion fruit and mango aromas and a toned down bitterness. This combination tones down the bitterness making for one easy drinking IPA. Plus, it’s a staff fave!

Wolf’s Ridge Brewing Daybreak Cream Ale — 5% ABV — 14 IBU — This Clear Sky Cream Ale is infused with local roaster One Line coffee and vanilla beans, making for a very robust flavor, yet a subtle, sweet creamy finish.
