New Butler County-made beer includes sprinkled donuts from 11 area shops

Rivertown Brewing Company and Butler County Donut Trail have collaborated on a new brewing celebration of National Donut Day, which is Friday.

SprinkAle, an Imperial White Ale, was brewed with sprinkled doughnuts from each of the 11 Donut Trail shops. The beer also features Ohio-grown wheat, malt, and hops.

Lindsey Roeper, co-owner of Monroe’s Rivertown Brewing Company, said she was excited to partner with the Donut Trail and the Butler County Visitors Bureau on the collaboration.

“We really love doing beers that have a lot of personality and what could have more personality than a beer that brings together so many local businesses and flavors,” Roeper said.

SprinkAle will be available on tap and in cans at more than 20 locations around the Butler County, Cincinnati and Dayton region. An official "tappening" to celebrate the release is slated for 4 to 9 p.m. Friday at Rivertown Brewery & Barrel House, 6550 Hamilton Lebanon Road, Monroe.

The first 150 party attendees will receive a complimentary pint glass to celebrate the occasion.

The Butler County Visitors Bureau launched the Donut Trail in January 2016. Since then, more than 17,400 people from all 50 states and 21 countries have completed the Donut Trail, according to Tracy Kocher, spokeswoman for the Butler County Visitors Bureau.

That has translated into the Donut Trailing bringing in over $2.5 million in economic impact into Butler County, Kocher said.

"We're proud to partner with the Rivertown Brewing Company to bring a new experience to Butler County," said Mark Hecquet, president and CEO of Butler County Visitors Bureau. "This collaboration introduces the Donut Trail to new audiences regionally and nationally."
