Yellow Springs Brewery expands its canned-beer offerings

Yellow Springs Brewery will release its Wobbly Wheel Imperial IPA in 12-ounce cans in the retail market starting next week. It's the third YSB brew to be canned for the retail market, following Zoetic American Pale Ale and Captain Stardust Saison.

The Imperial IPA contains 9 percent alcohol by volume and will be available for a limited time — although it will be brewed several other times in 2017, brewery officials said in a release.

The brewery will celebrate the release at 3 p.m. this Friday, Feb. 24, in its taproom at 305 N. Walnut St. in Yellow Springs. The brewery has decided to pay tribute to the IPA style during the can-release as well.

“We are planning to have some special guest beers on tap that we believe are not only great representations of the style, but come from right here in Ohio,” Chris Hutson, events coordinator for Yellow Springs Brewery, said in a release.

Wobbly Wheel, first brewed in 2013, will be available in four-packs. Starting the following week, the beer will be distributed to restaurants, bars and retailers. The four-packs will retail for $10.99.

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

YSB beers are now available in kegs and cans across the Miami Valley from Wapakoneta to northern Cincinnati, and in the Columbus area.
