General public sales will begin on Thursday, September 29. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Toledo Zoo to protect and save wildlife. Sales will be limited to two four-packs per person. Sturgeon IPA will also be available on draft at local restaurants and bars and the cans to be sold by select retailers. The veteran Toledo-based brewery is proud to work with the Toledo Zoo for both the Sturgeon Hazy IPA release along with its year-round release, Red Panda Irish Red Cream Ale.

“Both the Red Panda and the Sturgeon IPA have been well received by the public and the sale of these beers raise money for the zoo’s conservation programs,” said co-founder Scot Yarnell.
