Homestead Beer Co. is adding 12-ounce bottles to its lineup. The Heath brewery launched a year and a half ago with draft and 22-ounce bottles. But now its 1805 IPA and Tenpenny Amber are hitting the central and southeast Ohio market in the 12-ounce size and six-packs.
"We’re thrilled to be able to reach more beer lovers than we do now especially those that tend to enjoy craft beer at home," co-owners Adam Rhodes and Kevin Atkinson said in an email. "We have plans to add additional styles to our portfolio of 12-ounce six-packs, and we’ll continue introduce specialty beers in 22-ounce bottles as well."
The bottles will be available primarily in six-packs with a suggested retail price of $8.99, they said. The beers have been released to Matesich Distributing and Southeast Beverage Co. and are showing up at retailers in Licking, Fairfield, Knox, Athens and many other counties to the east and south of Columbus.
On Wednesday (Sept. 3), 1805 IPA will roll into Franklin County. Tenpenny Amber will hit the Franklin County market in mid-September. They will be available at Crafted Drafts, Weiland’s Market, Corner Stone Craft Beer & Wine, Grain + Grape, Barrel & Bottle, The Andersons, Savor Growl and Savor Pint, Palmers Beverage, Sunbury Wine & Brew Emporium, Northwest Wine & Spirits, Hausfrau Haven, Aficionado’s, Celebrate Local and others.
