It’s not enough to celebrate on one day when your anniversary happens to fall on Cincy Beer Week, you’ve got to kick things up a notch or two. Pleasant Ridge’s Nine Giant is doing just that this week to celebrate their first anniversary of opening their doors… and they’ve got some great stuff to share with us!
The week kicks off on Tuesday (They’re closed on Monday’s) and runs from the 20th until the 25th. They’ll have new beers, new food, previous beers, fan favorite foods, raffles for cool stuff, new merchandise… it’s gonna be a heck of a week!
For their big anniversary celebration, Nine Giant is rolling out these goodies throughout the week:
- Rum Barrel Aged “Heavy Metal Drummer” – Russian Imperial Stout, 12.4% ABV
- Rye Barrel Aged “Heavy Metal Drummer” – Russian Imperial Stout, 12/4% ABV
- Rum Barrel Aged “Headmaster Ritual” – Barleywine, 12.3% ABV
- Rye Barrel Aged “Headmaster Ritual” – Barleywine, 12.3% ABV
- Nectarine “Brainwasher” Farmhouse Ale
- Double Dry Hopped “Silence Kit” Hazy IPA
- Double Dry Hopped “Gold Sounds” Hazy IPA
- Blueberry “Easy Tiger” Kolsch
They’re doing each of these on different days, with a beer coming out every single day. You might want to clear your calendar!
If you know Nine Giant, you know they’ve got a love for one-off beers offered up on cask – so it only makes sense that they’d have a couple of those this week too, and they aren’t going to disappoint!
- Instant Crush Saison, with Watermelon and Turmeric
- Rum Barrel Aged Heavy Metal Drummer Russian Imperial Stout with Chocolate, Cherries, and Chiles.
