Brew of Champs? Cavs-inspired beer coming soon

The Cleveland Cavaliers have tapped into a new partnership with local taphouse, smokehouse and brewery, The Brew Kettle, to craft, brew and distribute "All For One" Session IPA — a limited release Session India Pale Ale specially designed with Cavs Nation in mind.

The Brew Kettle is a favorite Northeast Ohio destination known as the state’s first "Brew-On-Premise" microbrewery located just southwest of Cleveland in Strongsville, OH. On Wednesday, March 25th, Cavs fans will have one more reason to pay a visit to the brewery when "All For One" Session IPA is released on draft and by bottle. In addition to The Brew Kettle, the beer will be available at Quicken Loans Arena and Northeast Ohio Heinen’s locations.

This special beer is a hop forward brew without the bite (4.75% ABV, 35 IBUs). It’s packed with big fruity, citrus flavor and brewed with the addition of the spicy character of rye malt.

Jack Kephart, Head Brewer at The Brew Kettle stated, "We wanted to brew a Session IPA that was truly ‘One For All.’ Our goal was to give ‘All For One’ the hop flavor and aroma of a typical IPA in a lower ABV, but with a lower perception of bitterness that the casual beer drinker would find approachable."

Fans can identify the bottle by its eye-catching Wine & Gold label that embraces the Cavaliers’ "All For One. One For All" spirit.

"We’re thrilled for the incredible opportunity to align the Cavaliers brand with The Brew Kettle’s 20 years of experience in the craft beer market," said Kerry Bubolz, president, Business Operations for the Cavaliers Operating Companies. "They’re an established family business in the Cleveland community who we’re happy to team up with to provide our fans with a personalized local Session IPA to enjoy!"
