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 […]

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 […]

Volume 4 – Episode 19 – Bringing Back Rivertown

Not that they’ve ever gone away, but it’s been far too long since we’ve had Rivertown Brewing Company on Cincy Brewcast, and it’s time to remedy that situation!  It’s fitting that at the same time they are not only on a absolute tear with not just new beers, but bringing back crowd pleasing favorites as […]

Volume 4 – Episode 18 – Figleaf, For Their Fans

It’s an fascinating growth story, that of FigLeaf.  A brewery that is trying to bridge the gap between Dayton and Cincinnati, fill a vacant hole in their location of Middletown, Ohio and start bringing beer people back to Butler County all the while navigating the waters of an increasingly busy craft beer market locally.  Growth […]

Rivertown Goes Deeper Into Their Nitro Series With Pineapple Whip

I was pretty excited when I heard the news that Rivertown was going to let loose on cans of Nitro Roebling.  No one here in Cincinnati has attempted to move their nitro beers into packaging before Rivertown, and I’m a firm believer that with the right recipes, it’s hard to beat the texture of a […]

More Rivertown Lineup Revamp, And A New Can?

We’ve known that the rest of the core lineup for Rivertown was going to get a good refresher to match their other new changes, but it’s still fun to finally see them!  Tommy Sheehan from TommyInk has been working hard with the new look to Rivertown’s lineup, and the final two core beers to get […]

Vol 03 – Episode 11 – Live at Rivertown With Jason Roeper

Rivertown has been around for a long time (in beer years) and they’ve somehow managed to keep changing, and evolving with the local scene, while still staying true to who they are.  The biggest change so far in their life has taken place with the openin of their new, massive production brewery in Monroe. Sounds […]

Rivertown’s New Look For Roebling

I love the design side of beer.  It doesn’t effect the taste, and it certainly doesn’t effect the taproom experience – at first glance it might even seem like it’s a tiny portion of the whole thing, and thusly might be insignificant.  I am a firm believer though that this is pretty far from the […]

Are We Looking At A Rivertown Branding Refresh?

It’s been a big year for the veteran Rivertown Brewing Company.  They finally opened their doors to a facility that in my eyes finally starts to complete the vision of what Rivertown was supposed to look like from the beginning, back in 2009. If you haven’t been up to Monroe to see the new facility, […]
