BATTLE OF THE BREWERIES
1st semi-annual battle of the breweries
4 Breweries, 1 tavern, lots of people helped
We’ve been here only a few months, but a great few months they have been! We’d like to celebrate our initial success, give something back to the community, and to kickoff the holiday season with an amazing tap takeover that will be a blast for our customers old and new. Each brewery will bring 4 beers including some old favorites and something special for the evening. We’ll put them up on the stock market drink exchange where prices will go up or down based on how many each sells (or doesn’t) and whoever sells the most beer will get a $500 match from Atlas Tavern for the charity of their choice. The second place brewery will get $250, third $150, and fourth $100
First the breweries.
Rhinegeist (Cincinnati)- Rhinegeist is bringing their “A” game. Specially brewed for this evening is Pineapple Guava Crash Pale Ale. They are also bringing had to find NITRO Peach Dodo, the first kegs of the season of Dad Hoppy Holiday Ale in Columbus, and the easy drinking Cheetah Lager. Their charity Is Choices for victims of domestic violence. http://www.odvn.org/shelter-referral-listings/choices-for-victims-of-domestic-violence

And so we don’t feel left out;
Atlas Tavern for every All Ohio Signature Burger we sell that day, we’ll donate $5 to the Huckleberry House. The burger consists of an Ohio Beef brisket blend patty, Lucky Cat Bakery (Granville) hearty roll, Middlefield Original (Middlefield) smoked cheddar cheese, House recipe bourbon bacon jam featuring Sugardale bacon (Canton), and house fried pork cracklins and dill pickle chips out of Cleveland.
Huckleberry House works with Central Ohio’s youth and families who are dealing with some of the most difficult problems imaginable. Issues like abuse, violence, neglect, poverty, and homelessness. No matter how hopeless the situation may seem, we offer proven programs and committed people who know how to help young people and families take control of their lives. So they can move past the circumstances they’re in, and move toward the future they want. huckhouse.org
