Volume 4, Episode 38 – That One Time In Newport, With Figleaf

The story is epic, and the ending is exactly how you expect it to be when someone attempts to get to 38 breweries in one day. Now, there is a beer to commemorate the most epic Cincinnati beer tour of all time. I can’t even begin to thank FigLeaf enough for making this beer, called […]

Cincinnati Beer Release Roundup – February 2019

It’s a new month in Cincinnati – which means a new list of beer releases for you! I know that in today’s ever growing world of Cincinnati Craft Beer there are a lot of packaged releases for you to keep track of (and buy!). And since that can be a little hard to keep track […]

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. We got the final word today that things are being spruced up a little bit in the release department at Braxton’s “innovation facility”. I wanted to take a peek at the […]

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 […]

Rhinegeist Finds A Spot In Hi-Wire’s Newest Collaborative 12pack

Asheville has made a name for itself as a city that is packed full of great breweries, and if you’re asking me about my favorites, I’ll certainly put Hi-Wire up there near the top of the list. It’s fun, then, that this year the brewery is releasing their annual collaborative six pack with one of […]

Street Corner Karate and Barrel Thieves – A Brink Release You Need To Know About

Before we dig the details of these beers (or the beers that have been announced from this project so far), I have to share a little bit of the backstory – only because it’s so phenomenal. The idea for these beers started as an idea from The Party Source. They reached out to Brink to […]

Cincinnati Beer Release Roundup – January 2019

A new year doesn’t mean that things change too much… it’s still Cincinnati, and we’re still thirsty! This city has a ton of beer releases each month, and I try to keep track of all of the packaged beer that hits shelves for you. While this is definitely the best list of them all, I’m […]

West Side And Their Annual Barleywine Release

If you’re a geek… of the beer variety, there are few things that are more fun than getting together with a few of your fellow geeks and cracking open a few beers. It’s science. More friends + more beer = more fun. What absolutely blows this away in ‘funness’ is when you all get together […]

MadTree Meets Coffee With Local Blend Release

I think that while we might not all be able to agree with me that coffee and beer might go together even better than coffee and cream do – we can definitely all get on the same page that they are delicious when they meet each other in the right ways.  It’s one of the […]

04-31 – Dark Charge Day!

There are a lot of beer releases in Cincinnati.  It’s the great part of having as many breweries that we do – you get a lot of beer to go along with that.  It also means that when there are releases or events that are “different”, they stand out that much more than they would […]

Cincinnati Beer Release Roundup – December 2018

It’s another new month, which means another full list of beer releases that you most likely are having a hard time keeping up with!  No worries Cincinnati… the Gnome is here to help with that!  I keep a running list each month of every packaged release from one of our fantastic breweries around town.  I […]

Prepare Yourself For Braxton’s 2018 Dark Charge Release.

I am the leader of the movement to get Dark Charge Day officially made a national holiday for a couple of simple reasons.  First – I love this beer.  As an open lover of big, roasty, chocolatey stouts – this one is definitely one of the best in the city.  When you pair an incredible […]
