Where you from, you sexy beer?

Locally available options to sex up your beer game

By Hayley Fudge

Photo: According to Toxic Brewing Company, patrons on the balcony at a neighboring establishment used to play a game to guess if passersby were going to the Annex (porn store) or 5th Street Pawn (now the brewery). This inspired the Porn or Pawn beer name.

If you’re looking to add a shot of sexual innuendo to drink alongside your craft beer, check out these selections with perfectly perverse names that are either brewed here in Dayton or are available for purchase at select area bottle shops.

Dayton Beer Company

Dayton Beer Company brings the party with its Birthday Suit Pale Ale. Wear what you drink? Drink what you wear? Either way, this traditional 5.7% ABV pale ale is strong enough to put you in the mood yet mild enough to keep you performing.

 Toxic Brewing Company

Toxic was Dayton’s first brewery to open in more than 50 years—and it’s pretty hardcore. It does, after all, brew a Porn or Pawn Pale Ale. The standard version of Porn clocks in at 5.5% ABV. Or, you can heat your Porn up even more with the pepper version, which takes the pale ale to another level of both alcohol percentage (6.2%) and spice with the addition of fire-roasted poblanos and habaneros.

Pinups and Pints

No sex-related beer story would be complete without mention of the world’s only combined strip club and brewery. This Medway establishment is serving up its 6.5% ABV Thigh High IPA alongside, well, thighs and other body parts. Visitors can enjoy a pint with the dancing pinups on Monday through Saturday nights.

Rivertown Brewing Company

Get your freak on by tracking down a bottle of Funk Vessel. This funky, tart special release wild ale from Cincinnati’s Rivertown and Michigan’s New Holland Brewing Company is sure to rustle your jimmies. The 6.5% ABV brew has so much going on, it has potential to blur the lines.

Lagunitas Brewing Company

There’s nothing like the thought of getting a Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ (Ale) to get your heart pumping. This Petaluma, California-brewed beauty is smooth, silky and hoppy at 7.5% ABV. It will leave you wanting more, yet feeling satisfied at the same time.

Revolution Brewing Company

Brewed not too far away in Chicago, you’ll find here in Dayton a beer called Bottom Up Wit that will turn your world upside down and make your mind go places. This 5.0% ABV Belgian white ale spices things up with its coriander and orange peel notes.

New Belgium Brewing

Sometimes you just need to slow things down and enjoy the ride, and one beer that can help you change up your pace is the Slow Ride Session IPA from Ft. Collins, Colorado. At only 4.5% ABV, you’ll be around for the long haul while enjoying its eight different hop varieties and flavors of melon, peach, lime and grapefruit.

Oskar Blues Brewery

What better to go along with a night of drinking than a big Old Chub? This thick, 8% ABV Scottish ale from Longmont, Colorado is available year-round and is a great option for those who aren’t sure if they like it dark. The super-sized cans of Old Chub Nitro will provide an even deeper oral experience.

Intercourse Brewing Company

Some breweries, such as the one named Intercourse located in the heart of Amish Country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, have a hard on for sexually driven beer names. The dark and mild Blue Ball Porter clocks in at 5.2% ABV and brings some sweetness to the mix with a hint of blueberry flavor. A smooth ride is also guaranteed when you drink the 4.6% ABV Bareville Pilsner, which the brewery says brings a “clean finish.”

SweetWater Brewing Company

A fairly new addition to the Dayton beer scene, SweetWater Brewing out of Atlanta, Gorgia thinks its Happy Ending Imperial Stout will put a smile on your face. The stiff, dark beer clocks in at 9% ABV and is an ideal choice to end the night. If one round is not enough to satisfy you, there is also Second Helping, a limited-release India pale ale with juniper berries. Also on SweetWater’s rotation is Motor Boat, a 5.6% ABV extra special bitter that’s sure to get your mouth moving.

Flying Dog Brewery

This Maryland-based brewery is bursting with doggie style. Among its regular offerings is the Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout. Brewed with local Rappahannock River oysters, this mild 5.5% ABV is the perfect aphrodisiacal compliment to your day or night. The big, spicy Horn Dog barley wine is available seasonally and is no limp option at 10.2% ABV.
