Heads up, there’s another award-winning brewery coming to a retailer near you. Fat Head’s won five medals at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival, four of which were gold, and now you’ll get the chance to try their top-notch beer. Co-owner Glenn Benigni started in 1992 with a saloon in Pittsburgh, a haven for craft beer. Deciding he wanted to produce world-class craft beer, he teamed up with Brewmaster Matt Cole, and in 2009, moved the operation to Olmsted, OH to start a full-scale brewery with instantaneous success. Since then, they’ve opened new breweries in Middleburg Heights, OH and Portland, OR, expanding their production to allow thousands more to enjoy their brews.

The three main brews on draft are

Head Hunter IPA – This dry-hopped West Coast style IPA manages to combine all the major hoppy flavors: pine, citrus and floral, with a fruity pineapple note. 7.5% ABV

Bumble Berry – Brewed with fresh honey and blueberries, this ale’s backbone is cracker-y malt base. A bit of honey sweetness and the freshness of berries creates a unique flavor. 5.3% ABV

Sunshine Daydream – A session IPA with a refreshingly big fruity flavor. Citrus hoppiness is at the forefront, with a malty backbone to even everything out. 4.9% ABV

In addition, there are five limited release brands available: Shakedown Imperial Stout, Goggle Fogger Hefe Weizen, Battle Axe Baltic Porter, Head Trip Tripel and Trail Head Pale Ale. These will be available for a limited time during the introductory release, so try them while you can.

Today at 6pm, Liberty Taproom kicks off a week of events to introduce the brewery to the area featuring the Fat Head’s crew. Each event will offer a few of the limited brews mentioned above on tap, with brands varying by location.
