Cincinnati, Ohio – Urban Artifact is bringing back their Trick or Treat mixed pack for Halloween this year, and this time it will be cans for the first time ever. The Cincinnati-based brewery, which is known for their use of real fruit in their exclusively sour beers, announced today the release of a new mixed 12-pack of cans with a series of mystery flavored beers inside. Each 12-pack is a mixture of six different beers split between beers that are “treats” and beers that are “tricks”.
In a press release, the brewery said they were making an exception to their long standing commitment to use real fruit and ingredients in their beer and utilizing artificial means to achieve the desired flavor profiles they intended for these beers. Brewery rep Josh Elliott explained, “We wanted to mimic specific flavor profiles not normally found in beer and give people visual cues as to what the trick or treat flavors are meant to be”.
Don’t expect mind blowing flavors and world class beers from this one-off seasonal pack release. Elliott explained that the beers are “totally obnoxious and best shared with friends, and in that way, are pretty representational of the best kind of Halloween experience”.
The Trick or Treat pack will released October 27th at noon in the Urban Artifact taproom and co-released at select retailers across Ohio. The retail partners will be Cappy’s in Loveland, Holloway Liquor in Holland, and locally at 101 Bottles in Kent. A 12 pack will retail for $29.99 plus tax.
