COLUMBUS -- At its Columbus brewery, Anheuser-Busch plans to make a special beer just for Ohio, but the question is: Which one?
Buckeye State beer lovers will get to log on to a Web site and choose from among three nominees; a malty lager, an American-style amber and a beer called Old Eyepopper that blends caramel and chocolate malts.
Columbus-area bars will host tastings this month, and the voting will conclude at the end of April. The winning beer will be announced in June and will be offered on tap at bars and restaurants around Ohio a few weeks later.
Anheuser-Busch is running a similar promotion in New Hampshire and is considering offering craft beers in all 12 states where it has breweries.
