Rhinegiest is hosting its second INKED event at its Over-the-Rhine brewery on Nov. 20 to celebrate the seasonal release of its Ink stout.

INKED will feature artists from favorite local tattoo shops White Whale, Black Fern and Lonesome Town Tattoo, who will be giving pre-selected flash art tattoos — live.

If you're on the fence, maybe a pint of Rhinegiest's seasonal imperial stout, Ink, will set you over the edge to get some real ink. 

Rhinegeist Ink was first released in 2014 to great success. "Blacker than night, Ink stains the soul. An indelible chasm of roasted malt, plunging through note of coffee, dark fruit, and milk chocolate. Gaze long into the darkness and the darkness will gaze back into you," writes Rhinegeist of the beer on its website. 

The first INKED event was held in 2019, but it couldn't be held in 2020 (for obvious pandemic reasons). But after a year and lots of vaccinations, Rhinegeist says they're ready to welcome patrons to "drink Ink, (and) get inked" again.

The beer will be available both on draft and in bottles and the brewery says those who get there early will get an INKED tote. Tattoos are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Artists will have special designs to select from.

Admission is free. Draft and bottled Ink variants will be available for purchase at the event, as will tattoos. 

Noon-8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20. Rhinegeist, 1910 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, rhinegeist.com.
