OHIO CITY, OH (WOIO) - Great Lakes Brewing Company is making headlines with a ghastly ghoul -- Nosferatu.

The fictional vampire, who first reared its fangs in a 1922 silent thriller, was the inspiration behind the local beer that shares the same name.

Nosferatu Imperial Red Ale, a ruby red brew made with roasted malts and a bitter bite of hops, got USA TODAY's attention with its horrific label.

That's right, Nosferatu is up for the national newspaper's "Best Beer Label" Readers' Choice award.
