Cincinnnati Beer Release Roundup – May 2018

It continues!  Cincinnati craft beer is full of releases that can be hard to keep track of, and I get that.  Don’t worry, though.  I’m here to help.  I’ll wade through the calendars and social media posts that can sometimes get a little overwhelming to break out all of the packaged beer releases each month, so you don’t miss any of the things you want to stock your beer fridge with!

As always… if you notice I’m missing anything, just let me know – I’m not perfect, and sometimes I miss things!  Also, I changed things around a little bit this month and organized the releases by their release date, I think that might make things a little easier on you!
