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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Two Fun Cincinnati Award Winners At GABF

I’m sure if you have any sort of presence in Cincinnati’s beer social media scene, you probably saw the news already, two of our area’s favorite breweries brought home some medals from this year’s Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. I wanted to throw a post out there for those of you who might […]

Volume 4 – Episode 22 – Getting To Know You: The Common Beer Company

I LOVE seeing new breweries open up.  I’m sure that you’ve picked up on that by now – haven’t you?  Getting to know new people, and seeing how they put their spin on something that is so important to not just me, but to people all across Cincinnati is exciting.  Watching places grow over the […]

MadTree and Shorts Collaborate Mr Miyagi Style

We know that MadTree loves to collaborate with their friends in the craft beer community.  We’ve seen some really fun collaborative beers with Jackalope, and FatHeads hit packaging lately.  But if you’ve ever spent a couple pints at MadTree’s eclectic taproom drinking – you know that they don’t like to get too comfortable with their […]
