NEW BEER: Michigan brewery enters Dayton-area market

Dayton-area beer enthusiasts have some new options to slake their thirst.

Perrin Brewing Company from Comstock, Mich., is making its Dayton-area debut this week with three core beers and some seasonal and special brews, after partnering with Bonbright Distributing to distribute its product in the Dayton-area market.

Founded in 2012, Perrin Brewing Company says in a release that it is “committed to crafting high quality and consistent beer among each of the products with a focus on a classic look backed with a leading-edge taste. … Perrin intends to find a brew fit for everyone.”

Perrin brewed more than 23,500 barrels in 2016, a 60 percent increase over 2015.

The brewery will immediately offer year-round core brands, including Black Ale, Gold Ale, and 98 Problems IPA, along with seasonal brews such as its Grapefruit IPA, and specialty bottles such as “No Rules,” a Vietnamese Imperial Porter scheduled for release this fall.

No Rules is described as a 15 percent alcohol porter and is brewed with coconut, cinnamon and turbinado sugar, aged in bourbon barrels. The beer collected several online accolades since debuting in 2015, and Draft Magazine ranked No Rules their No. 1 beer for winter sipping, Perrin officials said.

“The cinnamon is an old trick from growing up as a beekeeper,” John Stewart, Director of Brewing Operations at Perrin, said in a release. “Mead makers use cinnamon to mask alcohol warmth, as it helped smooth out this brew. No Rules really shines as a dessert pairing. The turbinado sugar, a raw unfinished sugar, brings out notes of maple and molasses.”
