WHEELING, W.Va., June 5, 2013 -- Wheeling's only craft beer is now available at select area establishments. Basement Brewery, the brewchild of Wheeling home distillers Chad Hill, Jimmy Schulte and Dave Cornett is now in business and serving up suds.

"We're hoping that local beer lovers will enjoy our efforts and support our new craft beer which you can now get on draft at several local pubs," said Hill, who is a resident of historic North Wheeling.  

Basement Brewery varieties are available on tap at Generations Restaurant and Pub, 336 National Rd. and the Market Vines, 2251 Market St. It will soon be available at Metropolitan Grill, 1201 Chapline St.

Beer lovers will also be able to purchase the beer by the bottle soon, to enjoy at home. Bottles will be available at Casa di Vino, 2261 Market St., where there is retail inventory, in the near future.

Currently, Basement Brewery has released to the public two varieties of beer, a light beer and a double IPA. Others, including a porter, are coming soon.

"These are two of our most successful brews. We've tested the market and beer lovers have enjoyed tasting them at craft brewing events. We are pleased to offer them to Wheeling, historically a strong beer marketplace. We look forward to hearing from more local beer fans and await their comment," said Hill.

Basement Brewery also will make an appearance at the Centre Market Wing Festival, 11 a.m. – 11 p.m., Saturday, June 8.

It will also be served at the upcoming 4th Annual Good Zoo Brew, from 7 – 10 p.m., Saturday, June 29. A fundraiser for Good Zoo, this event also offers a wide variety of beer, snacks and is sponsored by Ohio Valley Connect.
