Rhinegeist’s Rarity Series is the name for the Over The Rhine Brewery’s line of 22oz bombers.  They kicked the series off with a bang when they put the first beer, Ink Imperial Stout out back in late 2014, and it’s been a wild ride since then!  They’ve released some barrel aged goodies, some collaborations and a whole lot of different styles to keep any beer fan guessing what’s next!
