Local brewery throws 'end of the world' party

EVANSTON, OH (FOX19) - So, the world was supposed to end on December 21, 2012. The date of this apocalypse was derived from the end of the Mayan calendar.

While the world may not have met its 'doomsday', people across the Tri-State thought it was a good enough excuse to at least throw a party.

One of those parties was thrown by a local brewery.

"Our take on the end of the world is we want to be around great beer, and we made a beer just for the party," said Jason Brewer, with Listerman Brewery.

Brewer said they came up with 'Peanut Butter Porter' to bring in the apocalypse.

"We thought if today was going to be the end of the world, what beer would be want to drink, and it's Peanut Butter Porter," said Brewer.

Listerman Brewery also added the element of live music.

"You know, the end of the world didn't happen. The end of my world will be when I spend this last ticket tonight,"said partygoer, Ben Davis.

The crowd at Listerman's seemed less than concerned about the world ending. Dean Regas from the Cincinnati Observatory said there's no reason to stop planning for the future.

"Everybody wants to know what's going to happen on December 21st. Did the Mayans predict the end of the world, and we're here to reassure them that nope, they didn't predict it, and we're hoping to have a great event tomorrow night to celebrate."

Several myths have formed, like the Nibiru Cataclysm.

"One is that there's this other planet, this rogue planet that's going around the solar system and comes by us every once in awhile. Total bologna. There's no such thing out there because if there was, we'd be seeing it for months. "

What about asteroids completely destroying Earth?

"We've had a few close calls, meaning there's been some asteroids that have come within a couple hundred thousand miles of hitting the Earth, but no asteroids are on target to hit us."

By all accounts, the end of the world celebration at Listerman's was a success. They said another party will be thrown for the next time the world is supposed to end.
