5 breweries in Miami Valley to release eclipse-themed beer

To celebrate today’s total solar eclipse, five breweries in the Miami Valley are releasing eclipse-inspired beers.

“The next eclipse isn’t going to happen until 2099 in these parts, so this is a once-in-a-lifetime event, at least in these parts of the world,” said Municipal Brew Works co-owner Jim Goodman. “Let’s celebrate it and have fun with it.”

Here are a list of breweries and what they plan to offer:

Branch & Bone Artisan Ales

Location: 905 Wayne Ave., Dayton

Details: The brewery will open at noon on Monday, April 8 to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime experience with a pair of eclipse themed beers: Barrel Aged Adjunct Stout and Hazy IPA can release. There will be a food vendor on site. For more information, visit the brewery’s Facebook page (@branchandboneales).

Full Circle Brewgarden

Location: 324 Union Blvd., Englewood

Details: Full Circle Brewgarden is hosting a gardening in the dark event noon to 8 p.m. Monday, April 8. The brewery will release a Black IPA and Company 7 BBQ will be on-site.

Warped Wing Brewing Company
