FeBREWary is going strong at The Rail, Ohio Beer Garden and The City Square Steakhouse. If you’ve stopped in, we’re sure you heard about our featured draft selections, but what you might not have heard about is the story behind our featured FeBREWeries…
This month, it’s safe to say we’ve made a new friend in Warped Wing Brewing Co., a Dayton craft brewery. With a full-scale production brewery in the heart of downtown Dayton (and a self-proclaimed tow motor expert in Co-Founder Nick Bowman), WWBC shares our sense of local pride and is committed to brewing well-crafted beers Daytonians and Ohioans can embrace.
Named after the Wright Bros’ Wing Warping technology, a famous Dayton invention which made controlled flight possible, Warped Wing is inspired by Dayton’s history of innovation and invention and committed to carrying that spirit forward in today’s craft beer scene. Warped Wing has an Industrial-style Tasting Room and distributes their beers to local restaurants, bars and retailers in the Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus markets, so if you’re a Clevelander who hasn’t had a chance to try their stuff, this month is your chance!
What makes these brews even better than their unique taste is the rich backstory behind each one of them. On tap at The Rail is Warped Wing’s Gamma Bomb IPA. While its taste is bursting with character, so is its inspiration – This IPA plays off Dayton’s fictional character Bruce Banner, otherwise known as “The Hulk!” We’re also serving up their Trotwood Lager. Its retro-style can is designed after a rescued 1957 Trotwood trailer which Warped Wing turned into an event vehicle. This brew is so popular, it recently became a core year-round offering.
At Ohio Beer Garden and City Square, you’ll find Warped Wing Brewing’s Jolly Tar rye beer, which was recently re-released, incorporating the use of oatmeal and raisins to make a sweeter rye. So far, the revamped Jolly Tar has gotten rave reviews, and we’re excited to hear what you think about it too.
FeBREWary is flying by, but there’s still time to stop in to The Rail in Fairlawn, Canton, North Olmsted or Strongsville, Ohio Beer Garden in North Olmsted, and The City Square Steakhouse in Wooster to try these Warped Wing wonders, as well as featured drafts from Wolf’s Ridge and Zaftig!
