Some of our local breweries are making more than just beer. From vodka soda to hard seltzer, these canned spirits are being crafted for beer-weary palates:

MARCH 2022


Rhinegeist Brewery recently introduced a new line of full-flavored hard craft beverages. These drinks are neither beer nor seltzer, but a clear malt base combined with a range of bold, fruity flavors. Try Zango Crush, a mango and blood orange mix, or Rhinegeist’s first hard lemonade, Lemmy Nade. 1910 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, (513) 381-1367, rhinegeist.com/rgbevs

FigLeaf Breeze
With a few sips of FigLeaf Brewing Co.’s Breeze, your day is guaranteed to get better. These canned craft wine cocktails are available in blackberry, raspberry rose, and peach Bellini (pureed peaches, prosecco, and sparkling wine). 3387 Cincinnati-Dayton Rd., Middletown, (513) 300-0275, figleafbrewing.com

MadTree Brewing Co.’s Sway vodka sodas are premium cocktails crafted with the natural essences of some of your favorite fruits. Try the light and airy flavors of strawberry and guava or the crisp and clean taste of grapefruit and ginger. Either way, the drink is a refreshing change of pace. 3301 Madison Rd., Oakley, (513) 836-8733, madtreebrewing.com

Sparkling Spirit
A full-service grain-to-glass distillery, Karrikin Spirits produces beer, spirits, and non-alcoholic sodas, and beer. But when you’re going for something lighter, try the sparkling spirit. They come in several different flavors, including Punch (rum), Hoptonic (gin), Keylime (blue agave), blueberry (vodka), and apple (rum). 3717 Jonlen Dr., Fairfax, (513) 561-5000, karrikinspirits.com

Fruit Tart Seltzer
Urban Artifact takes its “real fruit only” policy for its ales and applies it to its line of fruit tart seltzers. Snag a variety pack in different flavors, including cranberry and grape and orange Creamsicle. And be sure to check the release calendar on the brewery’s website for other fun seasonal flavors throughout the year. 1662 Blue Rock St., Northside, (513) 620-4729, artifactbeer.com
