Beer Me: Warped Wing Brewing Co.

One gorgeous Saturday a few weeks back, John and I had the pleasure of visiting a newer local Dayton brewery, Warped Wing Brewing Co. It’s downtown in a converted warehouse which actually reminded us of a mini-Rhinegheist. Free parking across the street was taken advantage of. There weren’t many people there that afternoon. We stopped in after a matinee performance of the musical Memphis.
The space is large and open with one long bar and many tables as well as a few arcade games. A large garage door was opened due to the nice weather. The view out isn’t spectacular but it was awesome to have the fresh breeze blowing through.
We shared a tasting flight because it’s the best way to sample multiple offerings on a budget. Because there was a fifth interesting brew we wanted to try, a pint of that was ordered as well.

Ermal’s Belgian Cream Ale, Flyin’ Rye IPA, Incorruptible IPA, 10 Ton Oatmeal Stout
Of course, the IPA’s did not tickle my fancy. Although, the Incorruptible was Belgian style so slightly less bitter. The Cream Ale was smooth drinking and their lightest option. The 10 Ton Oatmeal Stout was a winner and I knew it would be. Dark and smooth, just like I like it.

The pint is Pirogue Black Tripel. It’s their oatmeal stout brewed with cold pressed coffee. Holy mackerel! This was delicious. I could have had that all night (though we moved on after these samplings). The combination of stout and coffee was amazing. John dubbed it better than the life-changing coffee stout we found in St. John’s last year. Can you believe that?! Even though I gave up coffee (4 months strong!) this doesn’t count because it was brewed with beer.
They have growlers to go if that’s your thing. The prices were comparable to other local craft spots. $6 for the pint and I think $8 for the flight but I’m not positive about that and forgot to take notes. Bad blogger.

Why You Should Go: I feel like they had something for everyone even though there were only a few varieties on tap. If you’re a coffee stout fan, you need to be here just for that. If you’re looking for a relaxed atmosphere (at least it was this afternoon), you’ve found that here too. Friendly and attentive staff. I didn’t see food but I’m betting someone would deliver there. Give it a visit!
