Looking for the perfect beer for your Memorial Day weekend celebrations?

Mighty Warped Wing Brewing Company swept multiple categories in the Best of Dayton 2018 awards, in an impressive display of online voter support.

Not only did the downtown Dayton brewery of five years place first in both “Best Local Brewery” and “Best Locally Made Beer” categories, Warped Wing piled on by capturing the most online votes for “Best Craft Beer Selection.” The brewery offers only its own beers at its tap room, but that beer menu was popular enough to earn Warped Wing a nomination and the most votes in the category in which Barrel House, which offers beers from around the world, placed second and Dayton Beer Company, which offers its own beers plus beers from other Ohio-based breweries on its tap list.
