Yellow Springs Brewery will host a special release of its Springer Golden Ale with Raspberries seasonal brew at 3 p.m. today, Friday June 9 — but you won't have to show up at the brewery to get a chance to try it.

The brewery decided to put this year’s batch of raspberry-infused ale into cans, so the seasonal beer will enter retail distribution in both draft and cans next week, the brewery’s founders said.

The red raspberries were added late in the Springer Golden Ale’s brewing process to give the seasonal beer “a semi-dry finish that is not overly sweet, making it a perfect thirst-quenching summer beer,” YSB’s founders said in a release. This is the third year that the brewery has made a summer seasonal raspberry version of Springer, which in previous years has been available only in draft.

“The demand for this beer has always been high,” YSB Brewmaster Jeffrey McElfresh said in a release. “We are excited to put this beer in cans for the first time, as it will allow for a wider audience to enjoy one of our favorite summertime releases.”

In addition to the can release, the brewery today will celebrate its recently opened beer garden by tapping a cask of the raspberry Springer infused with mint, while also offering a Springer raspberry shandy option. Pizza food truck Bella Sorella will be serving its Neopolitan-style pizzas, and will offer a raspberry pizza for the occasion.

Yellow Springs Brewery already cans four other beers: its “regular” Springer Golden Ale, Zoetic American Pale Ale, Captain Stardust Saison and Wobbly Wheel Imperial IPA.

Yellow Springs Brewery opened in April 2013. Since that opening, it has added 1,600 square feet and new production equipment to its brewhouse and tasting room to help accommodate retail sales of canned beers and has purchased the former Village Lanes bowling alley at 1475 Xenia Ave. in Yellow Springs for use as a distribution center.
