On Thursday, February 8th Warped Wing Brewing Co. will be releasing both draft and 6-pack 12oz cans of Superba Hoppy Pils in their Dayton, Ohio taproom. Superba has an ABV of 5.4% and 35 IBUs. The craft beer is just one in an ongoing seasonal Lager-style series being launched by the brewery this year.
The beer’s name was chosen to honor historic Dayton brewery Olt Brothers Brewing Company, who incorporated in Dayton in 1907 and who produced a beer called Superba. During prohibition, the company temporarily manufactured soft drinks, made Polar Distilled Water, and distributed dairy products. After prohibition ended, the brewery opened again, selling Olt’s Beer, Olt’s Ale and Olt’s Superba Beer before ceasing production in 1942.
“There is some remarkable beer history in Dayton,” said Nick Bowman, VP of Sales & Marketing and Managing Partner at Warped Wing. “We wanted to embrace that heritage, by resurrecting a Dayton beer name from the past while putting a contemporary spin on the beer recipe.”
Copy on the Superba can reads: 1933. The end of dark times begin. Prohibition is tamed, and soft drinks become hard drinks once again. Beer brands are reborn.

To celebrate the release, Warped Wing will be hosting a party on Thursday, February 8th at 5PM in the brewery taproom. Some of the Olt family members with be on hand to share stories about their family’s brewery. The beer will be released to retail partners Tuesday, February 13th.
Warped Wing Brewing Co. is a craft brewery inspired by Dayton’s rich history of innovation and invention. We are committed to carrying that spirit forward in today’s craft beer scene by brewing new proprietary beer styles and our own “warped” interpretations.

We brew and distribute our beers to local restaurants, bars, grocery and retailers in the Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus markets. In addition to distributing our beers, we have an Industrial style Tasting Room where guests can sample our various beer offerings while appreciating views of the downtown skyline or the cathedral of stainless steel. If you are on-the-go, we will sell growlers, package beer and kegs to share with friends off-site. We also offer food service via our friends at Spent Grain Grill.
