Two Batavia Taverns Collaborate on New Brew
Written by Dan Fischer on October 30, 2019
O’Lacy’s Irish Pub & Eli Fish Brewing Company have worked together & created a custom-made beer, hoping to show the public & business community that its not always about competing, but when you work together, both businesses can benefit!
On Tuesday, November 5th , 5pm-9pm, O’Lacy’s Irish Pub will be hosting a “Kick-Off” Party for the New Hazelnut Porter that has been custom made for O’Lacy’s Irish Pub by Eli Fish Brewing Company. The collaboration was inspired as Kent Ewell (Owner, O’Lacy’s), Chris Hoffman (Bartender at O’Lacy’s) and Matt Gray (Owner, Eli Fish) were discussing the large amount of draft beer that O’Lacy’s sells. “We should make you your own custom brew”, Gray said. “You pick the type (lager, ale etc.) and flavor if you wish and we can make it”.
After reviewing what was currently on tap at O’Lacy’s, Ewell chose a Hazelnut Porter which is named appropriately, “Old Sod Hazelnut Porter.” After sampling the test batch, Ewell said, “I think this is very unique and something people will enjoy.”
The Kick-Off party is Tuesday, November 5th from 5pm-9pm. Pints will be on special for $3.50. Come on out and try the New “Old Sod Hazelnut Porter” which pairs perfectly with O’Lacy’s Rueben & famous homemade chips & dip.
