Listermann Brewing Co. is releasing three female-brewed farmhouse ales in bottles -- each with a special label designed by three female artists -- in honor of International Women's Day.

The bottles will be sold in four-packs for $11.99 from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday (March 8) at the Cincinnati taproom. Draft also will be available.

Ten percent of bottle sales and $1 of every pint sold will benefit Women Helping Women, a local organization that provides evidence-based prevention and expert crisis intervention and support services for survivors of dating violence, sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking in Hamilton and Butler counties.

Listermann, which also held a special beer release last year for International Women's Day, invited women from Cincinnati to brew the beers in January.

"It was a great turnout with a collective mix of women from different backgrounds that came out to help us brew," Kristen Ballinger, marketing manager at Listermann, said in a prepared statement. "Through this whole experience I have had the opportunity to gain a sense of community and connect more with women in Cincinnati."

The local artists who created the labels are: Jaclin Hastings (Riveting Rosie), Katie Jaeger (Call to Farms) and Kaycie Coy (Tastes Like Persistence). The three artists worked with the brewery’s graphic design company, Lemon Grenade.



Hastings, who received her bachelor of fine arts degree from Savannah College of Art and Design, is a tattoo artist at White Whale Tattoo in Walnut Hills. She also designed last year’s Riveting Rosie label.

“This year's Riveting Rosie label is a new, fun spin on the label from last year," she said in a prepared statement. "Still a nod to Rosie the Riveter, while lightheartedly and blatantly displaying a main ingredient of the beer."

Riveting Rosie was brewed with rose hips and hibiscus.



Jaeger is a professional artist working and living in the Cincinnati area. Her design is inspired by a 1930s war poster urging women to join the Women's Land Army during World War II, the brewery said.



Coy is a North Carolina native who moved to the Greater Cincinnati area in 2015. She is an amateur artist.

“The design's intent is to follow Listermann's original theme of recognizing strong women," she said in a prepared statement. "One of the most powerful things women can do is deviate from the norms our culture expects of us. I wanted to design a label that would provide a historical and metaphorical message. The 'bra burning' Miss America protest of 1968, which didn't result in fire due to Atlantic City Boardwalk rules, was a strategy coined from draft card burning protests to promote women's liberation. By breaking free of expectations and restrictions based on gender, we can pursue happiness and live our lives like the symbolism behind Lady Liberty."

Tastes Like Persistence was made with cardamom, cocoa nibs and black pepper.

The bottle release event will include live screen printing, a free photo booth and raffle filled with donations from local businesses to raise money for Women Helping Women. The live screen printing will include the designs of the different labels for shirts and tote bags.
