FigLeaf brewery in Middletown confirms it is going statewide

FigLeaf Brewing Co. wants to share its beers with all of Ohio.

FigLeaf, in Middletown, has signed an agreement with Cincinnati-based craft beer distributor Cavalier Distributing to distribute several of its brews throughout the Buckeye state. The brews would be offered in draft form — the brewery has not started bottling or canning for retail distribution yet.

“Because of our 20-barrel brew house and its production capacity, it was always our intent to utilize a distributor when the time was right,” co-founder and head brewer Jeff Fortney said in the release. “And now is the right time.”
