Police need help finding Warren County man, 83, who suffers from dementia

Beer and doughnuts: New event in Hamilton, Middletown


What could be cooler than exploring some of Hamilton and Middletown’s unique historic buildings? How about adding doughnuts and beer to the fun?

Slated for March 31 in Middletown and April 1 in Hamilton, Donuts & Drafts features treats from the nationally acclaimed Butler County Donut Trail paired with beers from Butler County breweries.

But to find the goods, participants will have to travel to secret spaces inside some of Hamilton and Middletown’s historic buildings.

That will mean exploring attics, basements, tunnels, hidden dance halls and more throughout Butler County’s two largest cities. Those reaching each secret destination will receive a draft beer and a doughnut.

Both nights, participants will check in at a designated place, where they will receive their passport for the self-guided tour. Then they will follow their passport to the Donut & Draft spots throughout both cities’ downtowns.

The exact doughnuts, drafts, and locations remain a surprise until check-in, but here’s who is participating: DogBerry, FigLeaf, Rivertown, Quarter Barrel, Municipal Brew Works, Central Pastry, Jupiter Coffee & Donuts, Kelly’s Bakery, Martin’s Donuts, Milton’s Donuts, Mimi’s Donuts & Bakery, Oxford Doughnut Shoppe, Ross Bakery, Stan the Donut Man, and The Donut Spot.

A limited amount of tickets are available here .
