It’s a long time in the making, the Cincinnati Brewing Heritage Trail. If you’re “out of the loop” and aren’t really sure what I’m talking about, I encourage you to read a little more about the trail before we dig in to this. I’ll wait. Ok, so now that we’re on the same page as
If you’re even a little bit curious about local hops, you might want to listen up for this one. Every year the Ohio Hop Growers Guild throws an open house event to provide craft beer lovers a chance to learn a little bit more about the rapidly growing hop growing industry here in the state.
I do a lot for our local beer community… lest any of you think that running a beer blog, and a local beer podcast is all about fun invites to soft openings, and drinking a ton of great beers, there is a lot of work involved. There is a lot of time that goes into
I am terrible this year… new baby… lots of big things going on with the brewcast – I can name off a few more excuses if that helps make it any better, but I wasn’t able to get a show booked for American Craft Beer Week (which we are right in the middle of, now).
There are some names in Cincinnati Beer that have taken on celebrity status at this point. Nearing the top of that list is Randy Schiltz. After helping to start Rivertown Brewing, he’s moved on to his own place down in Newport Kentucky, where he has taken a different approach to what a craft brewery can
I spent the other morning down at Darkness, hanging out, drinking beer, talking beer, and just generally having a really great day with Andy Reynolds from Alexandria and Eric Bosler and Ron Sanders from Darkness Brewing.

But… what’s a drinker to
Adding a little happines to the misery that is known as Black Friday shopping, Listermann has announced a couple of bottles that will be up for sale in their Norwood taproom. It seems only logical to me that you might need to take a break from the craziness that my wife’s favorite “holiday” always brings, and
One of my favorite parts about the fall is the seasonal beer – I talked about it a bit with Oktoberfest beers, and then with the “true fall seasonal” wet hop beers. There’s one more fall seasonal beer that we need to talk about – Pumpkin Beers! Threre are quite a few of these beers
I wasn’t sure how I was going to tackle this when I woke up this morning. Beer is supposed to be fun. Beer is about sitting with friends, cracking bottles open, sharing stories, sharing drinks – Sharing Laughs. That’s exactly what happened when you spent time with Mike Cisneros. I met Mike a couple years
If you’re a reader of this site, you might know a thing or two about being Gnarly… It’s about drinking local, not because you have to – but because finally… FINALLY we can drink locally again. There are places where local beer has been missing for decades that are staring to think and act a
I’m so happy to see the sheer number of medals from Cincinnati breweries from the 2016 Alltech Commonwealth Cup.
