Cheers! Fiona The Hippo Is Getting Her Own Beer

Combining 2 of Cincinnati's favorite things: beer and this adorable hippo.

What if we told you that you could support Cincinnati’s favorite baby hippo Fiona just by drinking beer? Well, we just told you.

Listermann Brewing in Norwood has teamed up with the Cincinnati Zoo to create a New England style IPA called “Team Fiona” with 25% of the proceeds benefiting the zoo.

Over the past few weeks, members of Fiona’s care team have been helping with the brewing process to create this hazy, juicy IPA.

“It’s great when you can turn a casual tap room discussion into reality. I actually thought the idea of a Team Fiona beer was a joke at first, but after hearing about all the Fiona fans at Listermann’s, I knew we had something brewing,” said Vice President of Marketing and Communications, Chad Yelton.

This isn’t the first New England style IPA to come from Listermann, who’s gained quite a reputation for honing the style with their many popular can releases in recent months.

“Team Fiona” is set to be released at the Listermann taproom on June 10th at 10 a.m.

You’ll also be able to get a 4 pack the following week at four Kroger locations – Oakley, Hyde Park, Anderson and Harper’s Point as well as  both Jungle Jim’s locations and Cappie’s Wine and Spirits in Loveland.
