The Dayton Brewery Alliance is releasing a special beer called #daytonstrong IPA to continue its support for people affected by devastating tornadoes that passed through the Miami Valley on Memorial Day weekend.

All proceeds will go to the Dayton Foundation for tornado relief efforts.

Several Dayton-area breweries are making versions of #daytonstrong IPA to serve in their taprooms and to sell to other member breweries of the Dayton Brewery Alliance, the group announced Friday. (Aug. 9) Warped Wing Brewing Co. also is canning more than 1,000 cases for distribution.

“2019 has been a heartfelt and difficult year for the people of Dayton," Warped Wing co-founder Nick Bowman said in a prepared statement. "That said, it’s amazing how people in our community come together to help friends and neighbors in need. It speaks to the level of character, care and giving that makes our city so great."

The brewery released an image of the can, which contains the following words: "Through darkness comes light. Through fear comes compassion. Through tragedy comes triumph. #daytonstrong IPA."

“The can embodies a minimalistic, purposefully under designed look as not to over-shadow what we are trying to do," Bowman said. "This is about all the people in need. Our neighbors, many, who have lost everything."

The beer will be on tap at Yellow Cab Beer! on Aug. 16. It will be released at all Dayton-area breweries Aug. 17. And Warped Wing will begin distributing cans only to bars, restaurants and retail outlets Aug. 19.

Warped Wing noted that several companies donated raw materials or services for the beer: TRIPACK, LD Carlson, Century Label, Country Malt Group, John Pattison, and Brewer’s Supply Group.

The #daytonstrong IPA follows the Dayton Strong Beer Bash held last month at Carillon Historical Park, home to Carillon Brewing Co. Organizers told the Dayton Daily News this week that the event raised $56,066.
