Taft’s And Gold Star Team Up For Cincinnati Chili Beer

I don’t know what plans you have for February 28th this year – but evidently it happens to be National Chili day. When you live in a city like Cincinnati, that is as fanatical about it’s chili as we are, you should probably find a way to celebrate the day, don’t you think? Luckily for […]

Municipal Heads To Wiedemann For A Hazy Collaboration

I’m a little behind schedule getting the info for this Wiedemann/Municipal collaboration – but cut me some slack, there’s a lot going on! I first got a glimpse at the relationship between Wiedemann’s head brewer Steve Shaw (then with Cellar Dweller), and Municipal Brew Works’ head brewer Sean Willingham on an episode of Cincy Brewcast. […]

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 […]

Volume 4, Episode 32 – Big Cis 2018

It’s probably the single event each year that gives me the “reset” that I need.  Coming at the end of the year, which is such a good time to reflect anyways – Big Cis is the chance for me to remember back to starting Cincy Brewcast.  The focus for the show, the focus for the […]

Cincinnati’s Beer Community Brews Up Resilience

I get all teary-eyed and warm inside when I get to write posts like this.  For something as terrible as the wildfires that are beating the living shit out of California to bring forth anything that resembles happiness is definitely saying something major.  These are the times that we are reminded what this industry community is […]

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 […]

Rhinegeist’s Feeling Good To Hit Pint Cans?

It got a few Rhinegeist fans (and Castle Island fans) pretty excited when the Cincinnati powerhouse teamed up to brew a beer with the young, Boston-based Castle Island.  The excitement only continued to build momentum when we heard that the collaboration was going to be a 8.5%, 50 IBU juice bomb of a NE IPA […]

Narrow Path And Historian Ron Pattinson Collaborate

If you’ve not yet heard about, or found yourself wasting a few hours on ‘Shut Up About Barclay Perkins Beer Blog’ you’re missing out, and I’ll forgive you if you waste a few minutes in the middle of my post to venture over there to fall into a rabbit hole or two.  The website is […]

MadTree Collaborates On Two New Cans – Phone A Friend and Lupulin Effect

MadTree isn’t bullshitting you when they use their catchphrase: “Beer builds community & Community builds beer.” They own it.  They infuse every pint of beer, every interaction, ever charity event with this ethos.  You can step into the MadTree taproom and feel this dedication… or if you aren’t the feelings type, you can look around […]

Urban Artifact’s New MWFT Makes The Symphony Even Better

I’m going to assume that you know what a Midwest Fruit Tart is at this point.  It’s one of the biggest pieces of the Urban Artifact puzzle that not only has made them a household name here in Cincinnati, but that has cemented their dedication to fresh fruits and spices.  It’s always exciting when they […]
