Fifty West Preps Their First Cider

Fifty West is going to make a lot of you “non-beer drinkers” very happy with their latest news – They are introducing their first cider. I am always extremely curious to see what breweries do with the category – from the uber-sweet to the crazy flavors that stray as far as you can from ‘Apple’ […]

The 2019 Winter Bonanza – MadTree’s Sixth Anniversary

I would usually say about a brewery’s anniversary that it’s hard to believe that they’ve been around for this long – but in the case of MadTree, it’s different. I look at the number 6, and it feels like these folks have been around for much longer. I mean that in the nicest way possible, […]

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. […]

Three Points Gets Some Grub From CHX

Food and beer go together. We know that now, right? I’m not just talking about fun ways you can pair food and beer together at home or at your favorite restaurant, either. I’m talking about those evenings or weekends that you hit up your favorite taproom to just grab some beers. You want, you need […]

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 […]

MadTree’s New Branding

I have been throwing you guys as many hints as possible on social media – especially when their sweet new distro van was parked outside of 1.0 a week or two ago – but now the cat’s out of the bag and I can let loose on this one: MadTree is re-branding… or refocusing their […]

Volume 4, Episode 37 – Streetside, The Demogorgon and Masthead

This week’s episode of Cincy Brewcast was recorded live, on location at Streetside Brewing Company with Garrett Hickey. It was an exciting Monday as the brewery helped their friends at Cleveland’s Masthead Brewing celebrate their one year anniversary with a satellite party by tapping three of their beers. It’s been a little while since we’ve […]

New Glassware From Tank Mansfield/Kneel To No One

While this might not really be about one of our local breweries – it is most definitely about local beer. You probably know Anthony “Tank” Mansfield from either his time spent in a couple local taprooms or from the artwork that he’s done in a couple of them around town. (That sweet mural at Fibonacci? […]

Swine City’s Anniversary And Bottle Release

Butler County and more specifically Fairfield had been desperate for something to call their own for a long time (when it comes to the brewery world). We’re a part of town packed with craft beer fans (have you seen how crowded a Jungle Jim’s pint night can get?), yet for a while, we had to […]

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 […]

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

I thought this was going to end up being a solo show, drinking a beer or two and telling you about it after being snowed in for a weekend. It turned out that The Beercat came through and gave me a quick rundown of this years Jungle Jim’s Barrel Aged Beer Bash that I missed […]
