The Brew Kettle's White Rajah is one of the most popular IPAs in Ohio. The Black Rajah isn't doing too bad, either.



The Strongsville brewery decided to release Black Rajah, a black IPA, in bottles about a month ago, with the plan to offer it about four times a year. But it's selling so well, the brewery has decided to offer Black Rajah in bottles year-round, brewer Jack Kephart said this week.



"It seems to be a pretty big hit," he said. "We're the only black IPA made in Ohio [sold in bottles] as of now. That's kind of a niche that nobody's filled yet."



The beer, made with Citra hops, is 6.8 percent alcohol by volume. It's available in 12-ounce six-packs.
