Every city has food and beverages they are know for; Columbus is to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Cincinnati to Sky Line Chili. Dayton is coming into their own in this right. Toxic Brew Co., in Downtown Dayton, has released three handmade sodas from the up and coming Mckibben Bros. Soda Co. “This is a project we have been working on for over a year, with experiments in the carbonation process and small private tasting of their “ink and hammer ginger ale” in the summer of 2014, we are very excited to finally have their sodas on tap permanently” Shane Juhl, Toxic owner, said.
Having added 10 more taps to their draft system, Toxic Brew Co. will be the first in Dayton to have the Bros. soda on tap and their initial offerings will include: Indians & Cowboys made with sarsaparilla root and bilberry, Mammaw Burton with cucumber, lavender and rose and finally The Hippie Hipster with elderberry, sage and grapefruit. “While we plan to always have their sodas available, the offerings will change. We have already seen a huge demand for their product just in the first few days it been on tap.” Shane continued.
This is not the first time Toxic has collaborated with start up food vendors in their tap room. Housemade Sriracha, another Dayton favorite, has made appearances in a number of their beers over the past few years. “Lee Anne (Housemade) has always been great to work with. We showcased her sriracha in our Porn or Pawn pepper ale. In addition to having the Mckibben’s not alcoholic soda on tap, we plan to included it in some of our brews as well. Next Tuesday(Jan 20th) we’ll have a special release craft beer on tap infused with their syrups.” Shane said.
