Millersburg Brewing Co. will celebrate its sixth birthday with six anniversary beers.
The celebration runs from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. May 4 at the Millersburg brewery in the heart of Ohio's Amish country. The party will include not only special draft beer releases but also live music, food specials and the first six-packs of Beclouded, a New England-style IPA.
"It's amazing," award-winning brewer Marty Lindon said. "I just can't believe it's been six years. It's just slowly grown and slowly grown. Hard to believe."
Millersburg, which is distributed statewide on draft and in cans, produced 175 barrels in its first year. Last year, it brewed just over 2,000.
Here's the anniversary beer rundown, with a new one being released each hour from noon to 5 p.m.:
Noon: Dank Democracy: A hazy IPA. The brewery said the beer's name is a play off Donald Trump Jr.'s tweet that "democracy dies in dankness."
1 p.m.: Outa Town Lemon Tart: A kettle sour fermented with three gallons of lemon juice per barrel. It was brewed in collaboration with Paradigm Shift Craft Brewery in Massillon.
2 p.m.: Andrew's Ice: A pale ale brewed in collaboration with Lockport Brewery in Bolivar. Lockport co-founder and brewer Andrew Marburger worked at Millersburg in 2014. A dark Munich malt — instead of a light Munich malt — was used for a kolsch. The beer became Andrew's Ice and it was a taproom favorite.
3 p.m.: Seven Hills Porter: A porter cold infused with coffee.
4 p.m.: French Ridge IPA infused with grapefruit juice.
5 p.m.: This beer is still up in the air, but Lindon said it will be a "fruit-infused something."
The brewery said O'Possum Run Pale Ale also will make its last appearance until it is rebranded on draft and will be available in a limited amount of six-packs at the anniversary party.
