CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Teaming up with the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, West Side Brewing is introducing Braille Ale.

A portion of the sales of the limited-edition raspberry Gose will benefit CABVI.

The beer, which is the only one in Ohio with a can featuring raised braille, will be available in six-packs and growlers at West Side Brewing during taproom hours and at select local stores.

CABVI has provided counseling, rehabilitation and employment services to Greater Cincinnati for the visually impaired since 1911.

Most of the people CABVI serves are slowly losing their sight due to age-related conditions.

Services provided by CABVI include access technology and social enterprising, a program helping to employ those who are visually-impaired.

West Side Brewing won a Best in Show award at the Craft Beer Marketing Awards for the beer can design of Braille Ale in the 8 to 15-ounce category.
