Urban Artifact’s Epicurean Thanksgiving Release 2018 – and Bon Vivant Northside

I love,  love, LOVE these releases from Urban Artifact.  Their barrel aged series of spontaneously fermented beers has been insane, already, and when you couple that up with the creativity that gets thrown in the mix with these – I’m in heaven. UA is putting together not just a really big, and fun bottle releases, […]

Bircus Taproom/Bigtop Finally Sets Opening Date

There is a large number of people that when you first tell them about the Ludlow, Kentucky based circus/brewery hybrid known as ‘Bircus’ want to tell you about how it’s a gimmick.  I won’t argue that, and I don’t think that the head clown on duty, also known as Paul Miller (he’s actually a former […]

04-28 – Don’t Be A Jerk – Queen City Certified

I’ve got a lot to say about this topic, and will very soon in a deeper post after I wrap my head around some stuff.  There’s a lot of things that I have to figure out how to approach.  Craft Beer is an incredible community, and one that has the potential to do some really […]

Mt. Carmel’s Carriage House Opens This Week

Mt. Carmel defines what it means to be an OG in Cincinnati’s craft beer community.  Not only have they been brewing since well before most of the people that fill the average taproom were able to legally drink, but they also do it differently than anyone else does. The taproom atmosphere at Mt. Carmel is […]

Grainworks Keeps Spreading It’s Wings – 2019 Is Going To Be Big

The first year of business has been a great one for Grainworks.  As a new brewery, you get to open your doors, introduce people to your brand and your beer, and you get to showcase why you should become their go-to spot (or at least one in the rotation of go-to spots).  You get to […]

Fifty West Releases Part Two Of Their “A Long Strange Journey” Series.

The latest Hazy IPA to hit cans at the Fifty West production facility is set to do so as the second installment of their “A Long Strange Journey” series.  The beer is called ‘Lemon’ – and if you managed to snag a pint of this sucker when it was on tap around town, you’ll know […]

Why You Should Be Excited About Sam Adams

It’s the giant beast that has lurked on Central Parkway for years, barely getting a mention in craft beer geek circles not because they didn’t make good beer, but because they were big.  It’s easy to turn a blind eye to the brewery that has always been there, in every beer cooler and on every […]

Volume 4, Episode 27 – Sonder’s Grand Opening

In true Cincy Brewcast fashion, every once in a while, we’ve gotta hit up one of the area’s busiest events and record a show.  A little noisy?  Maybe.  A lot of exciting?  Definitely.  I wanted to capture a little bit of the excitement that is surrounding the opening of Sonder Brewing in Mason, not just […]

Cincinnati Beer Release Roundup – November, 2018

I hope you know this drill by now.  Cincinnati is bursting at the seams with beer releases, and as a fellow beer geek I understand the desire to know about what’s dropping each week.  I also understand how difficult it is to keep track of it all.  That’s why I’m here, folks… to ease some […]

Fretboards Next Packaging And Just A Little One Year Anniversary

If you didn’t snag some cans of the last releases from Fretboard, don’t wait around, there are still a few cans of ‘Nati Dread and Mellowship floating around town (and they’re pretty spectacular beers… fitting very different moods).  But, if you’re already on to the next thing, you’ll want to know about this one.  Fretboard […]

Christkindl Returns!

It’s been a strange ride for some of our breweries around town… those that opened before the “boom” of the MadTree and Rhinegeist generation that has redefined what this city looks like.  One of the parts of this strange ride is those beers that were staples in some of our fridges, that over the years […]
