Paczki Beer Returns to Eastern Market Brewing Co.
Paczki is back at the Eastern Market Brewing Co. This year’s paczki-inspired beers come with two new flavors. According to the Eastern Market Brewing Co., this year, beer lovers can expect cherry and lemon flavors. Each is packed with real fruit and vanilla cream, just like a paczki.
Like last year, you can find both flavors in 4-packs of 16oz cans priced at $18. There is a limit of one case per flavor, with additional restrictions based on demand. Historically, the beer has sold out within 24 hours.
In the coming week, Pączki Beer will be introduced in a limited number of stores, featuring a mixed 4-pack containing two cans each of lemon and cherry flavors. This marks the brewery’s second year offering mixed 4-packs. Additionally, both flavors will be on tap at selected establishments in the Greater Detroit area.
Pick-up at the brewery’s taproom in Eastern Market during regular business hours from February 7 through Fat Tuesday, February 13. In addition to the beer release, Eastern Market Brewing Co. is hosting a Paczki Party on Saturday, February 10, in partnership with their Riopelle St. neighbors, Detroit City Distillery. Both flavors of Pączki Beer will be on draft, plus live music from the Kielbasa Kings Polka Band, a pączki-eating contest courtesy of Dooped Donuts, and pierogis made locally.
“Back in 2021, we stumbled on something special. We made a small, one-off batch of Pączki Beer and it sold out immediately. Then in 2022, we doubled our production, and again, sold out,” said Dayne Bartscht, Founder of Eastern Market Brewing Co. “Last year, we doubled production one more time, and moved to a pre-order process limiting how much each customer could buy. Sold out. We had no idea how much Detroiters loved Pączki but we sure do now. It’s wonderful.”
