Yellow Springs Brewery gives us a sneak preview of official 2018 Springsfest brew


Doesn’t every festival deserve its own special brew?

Each and every Springsfest, Yellow Springs Brewery brews up a special batch just for the occasion and then it’s gone right as word starts to get out. Fortunately, the brewery has teased us with some details about this year’s batch that is currently in its fermentation phase.

The Springsfest brew is slightly different every year, but typically falls along the lighter pale ale spectrum. This year, brewers said the beer is going to be similar to last year’s batch — only a little more hop-forward with an extra smooth and refreshing finish.

“Usually the guidleine is pretty much a lighter pale ale that is an easy drinker for festival weather,” said Heather Gnau, Yellow Springs Brewery’s digital marketing and design coordinator. 

Personally, Gnau said she is a seasonal drinker, which makes her especially excited for the Springsfest brew to be ready.

Springsfest beer will be on tap during the music festival, as well as at the Yellow Springs Brewery taproom. The beer is only available until the original batch is gone— typically a month after the festival.
