Flagship Beer

We know some days can look dreary in Dayton, so we crafted a beer that brings a little sunlight to Dayton no matter the weather outside. Using only the delightful Citra Hop, this pale ale has some bitterness but loads of tasty hop flavors. A citrus explosion hits you in the nose, followed by flavors of bright orange, grapefruit and mango.
Our 2020 GABF Award winning beer, this bronze medalist is a Belgian Style Witbier. This beer provides loads of flavor, with a mix of sweet grain flavor and zesty, citrusy taste. Subtly spiced with coriander, balanced with bitter orange peel, and Tachoma hops added for some additional bitterness, this beer is refreshingly crisp. The name comes from the Dutch for “Cloud” and this light and airy beer truly makes you feel like you’re relaxing beneath them.
Lock 27 Brewing’s signature India Pale Ale, Mouth Breather, combines 5 hop varieties to create a tropical hop aroma and a smooth bitterness. Named after the canal boat involved in a legendary Miami Erie Canal scandal, this IPA is scandalously delicious.

Core Beer

Lock Tender is a beer for everyone. It’s refreshingly light, with a crisp aroma and a classic beer flavor to quench your thirst. A perfect beer for time spent with friends & family. So, sit back and let this crisp Golden Ale help you navigate good times like the lock tenders of old.
Charlosta is an American Brown Ale brewed with a generous portion of honey malt making it extremely approachable and sessionable. Named after a canal boat that used to cruise the Miami Erie canal, take a ride with the toasty malt flavors and dry sweetness of this delectable honey brown ale.​

Seasonal Beer

Lock 27 Brewing is turning back the clocks on this Irish Red! A classic blend of toasted grains with a smooth, sweet finish brings us back the good old days of craft beer. Crack a can to Kiefaber Street and let the Dayton nostalgia kick in!
Inspired by Texas Blues artist like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Texas 12 Bar is the perfect American lager for your summer! Crafted to be the perfect BBQ and Blues beverage, Texas 12 Bar is light in nature yet full of hearty Americana flavor.
Massively hopped New England style IPA. We smell a ton of citrus fruits on the nose and taste tangerine, papaya & fat ripe grapefruit. Paired with a soft mouthfeel and a rounded bitterness, Testcanone is a juicy delight.
Who’s feeling tropical? Luminous Haze is a fun in the sun hazy IPA that has sent us straight to South Beach with notes of strawberry, melon, and pineapple! Turn any summer occasion into a party with a 6 pack.
The leaves are changing. The air is crisp. It’s time for Loktoberfest. A celebration of a beer, brewed in the traditional Oktoberfest fashion, with all German ingredients and a 45 day lager. You’ll find sweet, toasted malt flavors and a clean, crisp finish. Prost!
Our House DIPA, Stumbling Nag, a beer bursting with tropical fruit aromatics and flavors. Pineapple & grapefruit on the nose followed by a smooth bitterness and a creamy mouthfeel. The name is inspired by our 6th president, John Quincy Adams, while he was navigating the locks on the Ohio and Erie Canal. Let’s just say he had a rough journey, comparing his boat trip to a “Stumbling Nag.”
Dirty Bean water in the morning, Dirty Bean Stout at night! We’ve partnered with our friends at Reza’s Roasterie to make a coffee stout that takes you straight back to a 90’s Seattle coffee bar. Using Reza’s “Adulting Fuel” beans, it’s righteous combo of coffee and craft beer. Put on your fuzz and stay out of your harsh realm.
