Maumee Bay Brewing Co. in Toledo has created two special brews to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. The brewery made English-style and American-style ales from that period.
"We think they're pretty darn close," Oliver House general manager Neal Kovacik told the Toledo Blade. "We tried to stay true to the beer of the period through the brewing process and not filtering, using the same ingredients we could get today. Our brewers have done a lot of research, and we think they're pretty representative of what they drank then."
The brewery made the beers after being contacted by the Fort Meigs Historical Site in nearby Perrysburg.
