It's a long-suffering Cleveland sports fan's go-to phrase: Just wait until next year.

Now, that well-worn mantra is a beer.

The†Heinen's†grocery store chain has teamed up with Market Garden Brewery to produce Wait til Next Saison, a beer created to console Cleveland Browns fans who most likely are suffering through the second 0-16 season in NFL history. (Yes, yes, they still have one game left but does anyone really believe they will take down the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend?)

The draft-only beer -- it's 6.4 percent alcohol by volume and features French saison yeast, and Saaz and Lemondrop hops -- will be released Jan. 5 at all Heinen's locations, except for the Middleburg Heights store. Maybe Browns coach Hue Jackson will down one after jumping in Lake Erie. (Yes, he promised to do that if the Browns repeated their 1-15 record from last year.)

ďWe created this beer as a way to commemorate another lost season for the team that loves to frustrate us, and celebrate the resiliency and loyalty of Cleveland football fans,Ē Heinen's beer and wine buyer Ed Thompkins said in a news release.

Heinen's described the Belgian-style beer as having "spicy and pleasingly bitter flavors, resembling feelings all too familiar to Cleveland football fans."

Market Garden co-founder Mike Foran said: "Like the Browns, this beer gives you exactly what you expect: Hazy yellow, peppery yeast notes, and a dry finish."

As for why Heinen's and Market Garden chose the saison style? "It sounds a lot like season," Foran deadpanned.

Five Heinen's locations will host special "The Bitter End" beer celebrations at 6 p.m. Jan. 5 and 2 p.m. Jan. 6. Tickets are $15. Click on the links below for more details:
