Braxton Labs Plans New Format For Releases In 2019

If you thought that the branding for the recent release of Braxton’s Cherry Turnover Berliner at Labs looked a little different, you were right.

Volume 4 – Episode 36 – Solo, But Not So Solo, Snowed In, But Not So Snowed In?

Fifty Wests Heads Coast To Coast With Their New Beer Dinner Series

I don’t talk about every event that happens in Cincy Beer – there are too many of them – heck, there are too many great events to just talk about those, even. Because of this, you should know that when I do bring an event up it’s something that I really, really think you need […]

The Real Reasons You Should (And Shouldn’t) Worry About Your Breweries During This Shutdown.

There seems to be a lot of articles lately that are telling you that your favorite breweries aren’t going to be able to get beer on the shelves for much longer. I don’t think that’s what the news has been trying to tell you – but it’s certainly how it looks, and it’s definitely how […]

Braxton’s Ambitious Plans To Stay The Same – While Adding A $5Million Expansion Including A Rooftop

DogBerry Celebrates Four Years – And A Bottle Release

If you have asked me for a brewery recommendation in the recent past, I can almost guarantee that I have told you that you need to hit up DogBerry in West Chester. It’s not just that I think they’re making some really great stuff lately (which I do), I think it’s insane to talk to […]

Taft’s Looking At A Rebrand For Their Packaging?

These label releases have been “out in the wild” for a little while now, but I haven’t seen anyone mention something that I thought was worth noting a little bit. It’s a design rebrand. It’s interesting for the beer nerd, and the design geek inside of me to watch as brands grow and spend a […]
