It’s Good To Be King – Especially When You’re Celebrating Your 60th Anniversary!

I love Little Kings, and not in an ironic “my Grandpa drank this” way, either.  I love Little Kings because they are delicious, little green bottles of happiness.  The beer has been around now for 60 years, and Christian Moerlein is planning a bunch of events not just help us Little King geeks celebrate our […]

Braxton’s Breeder’s Cup Partnership

There’s one thing that you need to understand about Braxton Brewing company to understand why this partnership is so great for Braxton.  While we may (rightfully so) claim them as one of our own breweries here in Cincinnati, and while they are certainly dedicated to the Queen City.  Braxton is a Kentucky Brewery.  Braxton loves […]

Product Review: Nod Products, Caft Carriers

From time to time I get in contact with companies that are making products that for one reason or another I feel you as a reader and craft beer drinker like myself might have a use for.  I was recently in contact with the folks from Nod Products about their craft beer carriers – which […]

Fifty West’s Adventure Challenge

While most afternoons I’d much rather choose a comfortable seat at the bar over running through the woods – I have to admit that this not only fits into the “Fifty West Personality”, but also sounds like something extremely unique that you’re not going to find at a lot of breweries in the country – […]

A Rhinegeist Coffee Milk Stout Sneak Peek?

It’s time for another label approval from the big guys down in OTR.  As they gear up for their big Rare Beer Festival this month, they are also taking a little bit of time to keep cranking out releases (or at least label approvals).  Since there is a segment of Cincinnati’s beer community that loves […]

Rivertown’s Craftoberfest

If you’re a listener to Cincy Brewcast (You should be… it’s a pretty fun show) and you are caught up, you’ll remember that a few weeks back when I sat down with Rivertown Brewing Company they mentioned their upcoming Craftoberfest. As the time gets a little closer, I wanted to give you a peek at […]

Cincinnati Beer Release Roundup – October, 2018

It’s officially fall – there isn’t any escaping that now, which means that yes, while I am going to miss the warmth of Summer sunshine, we are going to be diving headfirst into my favorite drinking season, now.  Octoberfests are filling my fridge, and will soon start making way for some delicous pumpkin beers alongside […]

Volume 4 – Episode 23 – Back In Studio With Craft Beer Joe and Raging Hop

There will always be something special (and fun) about getting back “in studio”.  It reminds me of how we started this show, just sitting around a table drinking a few beers and talking about what’s happening in our craft beer community.  Without a couple of friends to drink with, though – it just wouldn’t work, […]

The Haunted Brewery Tour

Just in time for the season, Cincinnati’s own Brewery District has teamed up with Cincinnati Landmark Productions, Cincinnati Escape Room and Christian Moerlein to put on a production that combines history with mystery and an interactive puzzle that you’ll need to solve. Talk about a brilliant idea… this one is really something pretty special.  I […]

Fretboard’s First Packaging Release

I can only assume that you’ve seen this news already – afterall, social media has had a nice little buzz about it since it was first announced, and I also added it to the Big September 2018 Beer Release post that I know you’ve been keeping your eyes on… but just in case, I wanted […]

The Great Cincinnati Pumpkin Beer Roundup – 2018

It doesn’t seem like there is an in-between here.  Pumpkin beers: You love them, or you hate them with the passion of a million suns.  I love them – so if you’re one of those pumpkin-haters, you’re going to have to deal with a little bit of over the top enthusiasm for a minute. The […]
