Wine snobs and beer geeks unite! Madison’s Debonne Vineyards is the largest estate winery in Ohio with 175 acres of vines, but it’s also home to Double Wing Brewing Co. Formerly known as Cellar Rats Brewery, the 15-barrel brewhouse scrapped its recipes and changed its name last year to revamp its collection of brews. Co-owner Joel Sandrey also snatched the lapsed copyright for the name and branding of P.O.C., a classic Cleveland brew made by the Pilsener Brewing Co. in 1917. Once nicknamed the “Piss of Cleveland,” this revamped P.O.C. ($5 for 16 ounces) is now a bright, Euro-style pilsner worthy of local pride served up in this rustic, cabin-style tasting room where an entire wing is dedicated to beer drinkers. Our Pick: The yearly harvest of the brewery’s house-grown hops is celebrated with a fresh hop brew. After last year’s IPA, Double Wing went with a Fresh Hop Amber red ale ($6 for 16 ounces), a low-bitterness grog that will likely be gone by December.
