Urban Artifact Creates Private Label Beer for Rabbit Hash General Store

CINCINNATI, Ohio – Urban Artifact, Cincinnati-based craft brewer and “wild culture” expert, today announced a collaboration with Rabbit Hash General Store to bring a private label beer to the store for the first time.  You may have noticed that Urban Artifact is a little obsessed with artifacts- the name, the building, the artifact-inspired beer names. When news broke about the recent fire that devastated the Rabbit Hash General Store and the community that supports it, the Urban Artifact team knew that they wanted to find a way to collaborate with this living artifact.

The Rabbit Hash General Store, which is in the heart of historic Rabbit Hash, KY, has been in existence since 1831 and survived the flood of 1937 and the recent fire in 2016. Just like any exceptional artifact, the Rabbit Hash General Store has stood the test of time.

The Urban Artifact team wanted to create a little “buzz” (pun intended) around the store, thus “Rabbit Hash General Store Golden Ale” was born. Clocking in at 5.6 ABV, this golden ale is crisp and refreshing. “It’s an amazing beer, gold in color, packed with flavor. We loved the collaborative process with the folks in Rabbit Hash, and we’re confident we’ve produced something both sides of the river can be proud of,” states Scott Hand, co-owner of Urban Artifact.

You can discover this liquid artifact for yourselves at the Urban Artifact taproom or take a scenic ride out to Boone County, KY and experience this little slice of history that lies between the Ohio River and the Kentucky hills.  Six-packs of Rabbit Hash General Store Golden Ale will be available at the General Store on Friday, October 13th.
