Beer Review: Yoda Potato Strikes Back from Listermann Brewing Company

Yoda Potato Strikes Back from Listermann Brewing Company




Today’s 4.20 UT-rated Yoda Potato Strikes Back Hazy IPA is named after a dog.

His picture is on the can, and I got to say, he’s pretty damn adorable.

Yoda Potato (the dog, not the beer) belongs to John Ewers, one of the brewers at Cincinnati’s Listermann Brewing.

The staff says he scampers around outside the brew pub soliciting head scratches from customers day after day.

The dog does that, not John the brewer.





If you happen to find yourself in Ohio, stop by and meet Yoda Potato, and then settle into the spacious wood and brick taproom for a couple pints of the beer that bears his name.

That is, if you can get it.

This juiced up hazy only comes out once a year, and this time they made just one 20 barrel batch!

The only stash that’s leaving Ohio is right here!

Take a sip, and find out why haze heads and dog lover’s all flock to Listermann each spring for this release.

And it’s not just for the ridiculously cute can.

And when you need a little juice in your life, this adorable hazy will have you covered.





The pour was golden yellow haze with agitated lacing, generous carbonation and a long lasting white creamy frothy head.




Big nose of pineapple, floral, hoppy lemon zest, orange and evergreen.




  • Pineapple
  • Tangerine
  • passionfruit
  • Citrus
  • Grapefruit Rind
  • Herbal
  • Pine




I’m a sucker for dogs and glad this little pug caught my eye!

I’m also a sucker for Hazy’s and it didn’t disappoint.

Big citrus flavors of pineapple and passionfruit with a mild bitter pithy grapefruit finish with hints of pine.
