Join us in the Beer Cellar for the release of a special Pub Exclusive brew, Fighting Heart Irish Red Ale, named for Cleveland-born fighter Johnny Kilbane.

Fighting Heart Irish Red Ale will be tapped on Tuesday, September 25 at 6PM in the Beer Cellar of GLBC’s Ohio City Brewpub.

This free public event coincides with the 100th anniversary of Kilbane’s victory against Abe Atell, which made him the World’s Featherweight Champion, a title he held longer than any fighter in the history of boxing. GLBC will donate $1.00 from each pint sold to the Johnny Kilbane estate’s memorial fund. Light appetizers will be served while supplies last.

GLBC Pub Brewer Joel Warger chose the roasty, malty Irish Red style to honor Kilbane’s heritage. The beer will be available exclusively on tap at the GLBC Brewpub while supplies last.
