Every time beer geeks in Cincinnati get together and talk about Sam Adams, there’s bound to be a couple of things that you’ll hear. #1 – Someone is going to talk about how underrated this brewery is, and how surprised they were the last time they picked up something from them. #2 – Someone is
This was a test of some new streaming stuff that I’m working on, and we fired up Instagram live from our dining room after a long weekend out of town, with a sick baby (and a sick gnome) to drink a couple beers and talk about what’s been happening in the latest Cincy Beer releases.
Unlike most of my other ‘Beer Rundowns’ that I publish, this one doesn’t focus on a particular style. No… instead of focusing on Oktoberfest beer, or Pumpkin beers, these are all beers themed after baseball.

I know, I know… some “more sophisticated” drinkers like to snub their noses at these drinking holidays that we drunkards in America have embraced. Look… I’m a drinker at heart, and I love a good excuse to go out and celebrate anything with a beer or two. St. Patrick’s day is no exception to this.
I was pretty excited when I heard the news that Rivertown was going to let loose on cans of Nitro Roebling. No one here in Cincinnati has attempted to move their nitro beers into packaging before Rivertown, and I’m a firm believer that with the right recipes, it’s hard to beat the texture of a
I think we all knew that Rhinegeist has been growing very big, very fast. I also think that we all knew they were really big here in Cincinnati, but the level that they had grown to in the United States has now taken on mind blown status. According to the latest numbers from the Brewer’s
They’ve been chugging along in Blue Ash, working to change minds and fill thirsty bellies for more than a year now and it begs the question: Why has it taken the Brewcast that long to get out to Blue Ash to do a show with the Queen City Brewery of Cincinnati? I don’t actually have
