Mt. Carmel Brewing Co. from Cincinnati will hold a special release party at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Lizardville in Bedford Heights in suburban Cleveland. The brewery will offer its Third Shift Imperial Coffee Stout, which is part of its Snapshot Series.
"It's a unique offering -- blended with the cold-brewed roast of Cincinnati's La Terza Artisan (Coffee) Roasterie," assistant brewer Patrick Clark said in an email. "We've remained true to our brewery's balanced trademark -- contributing notes of coffee in both the nose and finish, but with the unmistakable roasted body of a true stout. It's a draft only offering cellaring with a 10 percent ABV exclusively brewed for our Cincinnati backyard, but now available Wednesday to our neighbors in the North."
Mt. Carmel brewers will be there to chat beer. They also will be serving up their Amber Ale and India Pale Ale.
