Craft Pickle Brew

Craft Pickle Brew

Cincinnati, Ohio – This summer, fans of Cincinnati’s iconic deli, Izzy’s, will have the opportunity to enjoy Izzy’s famous pickles in a whole new way – as a beer, as Izzy’s partners with craft brewery, Urban Artifact to launch Pickle.

Based on a German-style wheat beer with a sour finish, Urban Artifact’s Pickle is a traditional German Gose (pronounced “Goes-uh”) brewed with 1,000lbs of cucumbers, 2lbs of fresh dill, 9lbs of sea salt, and 1.25lbs of coriander per 30 BBL batch. The end result is a taste experience similar to that of biting into a fresh dill pickle.

 “Our brewing philosophy is to use only the best ingredients in our beers such as whole fruits, spices and vegetables; no flavorings or extracts,” said Scotty Hunter, Chief of Strategic Development for Urban Artifact. “Izzy’s has the same mentality with everything they create and they’ve been a great partner to work with. Plus, there is no better example of this philosophy than an Izzy’s pickle!”

 To unveil Pickle to the public, Urban Artifact will host a tapping and can release party on July 14, 2017 from 4-8pm.  Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy Pickle in both cans and on draft, with six-packs available for purchase. Adding to the festivities, guests will enjoy complimentary “Izzy-tizers” from Izzy’s and will have the chance to walk away with fun Pickle swag.  

 “In addition to Reubens and potato pancakes, one of the things we are most known for at Izzy’s are our pickles,” said John Geisen, President of Izzy’s. “It’s been a thrill to work with Urban Artifact to bring the taste of our famous pickles to life as a craft beer.”

 In addition to being available through the Urban Artifact taproom, after the launch, Pickle will be distributed in limited quantities at various retailers across the Tri-State as well as at select Izzy’s locations.

 Urban Artifact is located in Cincinnati’s Northside neighborhood at 1660 Blue Rock Street, Cincinnati, OH 45223.  For more information, visit www.artifactbeer.com or call (513) 620-4729.

  • “First time having Izzy burger. Incredible! ”

    Rob D ★★★★★

  • “Mmm Reubens! I come here for a quick lunch and they are super friendly and prompt. I like to get the reuben salad. It is quite large and a very cool take on the traditional sandwich. It is jam packed with "good" lettuce, sauerkraut, grated swiss cheese, corned beef, chopped pickles, and topped with their homemade thousand island dressing. The cool finishing touch is rye bread croutons which seem to be homemade. They also have good sweet tea! ”

  • “Love Izzy's Reuben's and Potato Cakes. This is the closest to my house. I live in Goshen but it's worth the drive. Had to make a special trip there for St. Paddy's Day. Great customer service. And great food. They have the best Potato Cakes in town.”

    Adrienne J. ★★★★★

  • “Top of the list if you are visiting or live in Cincy. The reubens and potato pancakes are awesome! The turkey wraps are fantastic too. I’m hungry just talking about it…”

    Byron S. ★★★★★

  • “Has the best reuben of my life (thus far)!!  Nothing fancy about this joint - very laid back and casual.  Staff was friendly and I could tell that they have a lot of regulars that come in for lunch.  I ordered a reuben and fell in LOVE!  Not greasy, not soggy, lots of awesome corned beef and sauerkraut, and the bread was super fresh. Izzys is on our list of places to eat when we are in Cincy.   Top 3 for sure! ”

    Melissa D. ★★★★

  • “The best! Yummy. Love potato pancakes and pickles as much as the sandwiches. ★★★★★★★★★★ 10★s. ”

    Wana R. ★★★★★

  • “We love this place. So glad it came to Ft. Wright. My 2-yr. old loves the pickles and almost makes a meal on them alone. The reubens are great but you owe it to yourself to experiment. The Spicy Delight is awesome and worth a try. ”
