The Millersburg Brewing Co. in downtown Millersburg will hold its official grand opening at 11 a.m. July 18. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be at 11:30. (The brewery has been open since May.)
The brewery and tasting room also will release a new beer called Lady Justice Lager. The name is a tip of the hat to the statue that stands on the second story balcony of the Holmes County Courthouse, which is across the street from the brewery. The statue was place there Oct. 24, 1885.
The brewery described the beer as a "light golden lager that is smooth on the palate with a slight spicy, fruity hop note and clean sweet malt taste. With a very low hop bitterness, the pilsner malt flavors set the pace for this easy drinking German-style Munich helles lager."
Millersburg Brewing will hold drawings for prizes and there will be special discounts on merchandise and beer. There will be free finger foods, provided by Bags Sports Pub, and live music from 5 to 8 p.m.
