Two Cincinnati institutions are teaming up for a new beer.
Listermann Brewing Company and King Records will launch a new beer to honor blues and bluegrass music at 10 a.m. on Saturday at Listermann’s, located at 1621 Dana Ave., just blocks from the former site of King Records on Brewster Avenue.
"This tribute beer is part of a summer beer series that the brewery has developed in partnership with King Studios and the design and print shop We Have Become Vikings to celebrate the upcoming 75th anniversary of King Records in Evanston," the brewery said in a statement.
This month’s beer honors two hitmakers, Freddie King and the Stanley Brothers.
"In 1961, Freddie King’s 'Hide Away' reached number five on the R&B chart and then crossed over to the Pop chart, reaching number 29. 'Train 45' was the flip side of the Stanley Brothers’ very first single for King, released 60 years ago in fall 1958," the statement said.
