Dented Keg Brewing Company, 700 Adams Shoppes, Mars

The Dented Keg (snap, snap) brewed up a stout (snap, snap) that’s an homage to their locale outside of Mars (snap, snap). It’s creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and 7 percent ABV. While you’re in Butler County, be sure to check out these breweries worth haunting.

Necromancer Brewing Co., North Hills location coming soon

The soon-to-open Necromancer Brewing Co. is collaborating with Sharpsburg’s Dancing Gnome to resurrect an old beer style that’ll give you goosebumps. Square Dancing is a Kentucky Common Ale from Louisville produced from the Civil War until Prohibition. It has a soft, toasted, bready mouthfeel and a clean profile. It will be released in November as a seasonal staple on Necromancer’s menu. Subscribe to Necromancer’s mailing list or Dancing Gnome’s mailing list for updates.
