I like this place a lot. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, they have 80 taps, hundreds of bottles, and most of their beer is very good. They also have íinfusersí (french presses) that you can use to customize your beer. Itís pretty fun. They have tasty food, too.

Easy to find location on UC campus with street and garage parking. New clean location with large long bar in center with 80 taps in the middle with 4 coolers with 2 on each side of taps. Good selection, and I had 2 new beers for me with one being the house signature beer from Epic. No food but allow carry in from local vendors. Freindly staff and owner (Mike) with good knowledge and timely service. Loyalty Club Card and promotions. Someplace I will go regularly when in the area.

Decent selection, quite a few local beers, Founderís tap take over when I went with the Imperial stout and Mango Magnifico for $2 off per glass. Not bad for being on a college campus.

Located right across the street from campus on Calhoun Street. This bar has the best tap selection that Iíve seen in Cincinnati. Few local micros on tap and other taps. Decent selection of bottles, had Rockforte, Westmalle, St Bernardus, bombers etc. They are soon to have food. Well worth a stop.

A beer by right bar UC that opened up recently, the place has a nice (albeit snug) atmosphere with solid service. Lots of beers on draft, but outside of the nice local selection, theyíre pretty predictable. No food, and the value is alright. Decent for pregaming, but not a tickerís bar (unless youíre a newbie).

Long bar, with a long row of taps behind. Comfortable stools. Opposite of the bar is a giant chalkboard with the list of beers and ABVs, pretty nice. Happy hour prices were reasonable, I think I paid $4.25 for my snifter of DIPA. A lot of students working here it seems, but the bartender I talked to was very knowledgeable and clearly enthusiastic about the craft beer scene. A couple tables, I didnít really look around. Besides the exclusive Epic beer, not too many rarities or one-offs, but a solid selection. If Iím in the area and trying to get a casual beer with friends, this is a place Iíd gravitate towards.

New bar in the U Square development right off the UC campus. Shotgun-style bar, so itís narrow. A few high tables in front, and more in the back. Low-lit, dark wood; reminded me of the International Tap House or World of Beer chains, a little bit. There are 80 taps with a ton of local and regional and national crafts, as well as a few macros and some Belgians. The fridges had some interesting stuff, but I didnít check out bottle prices. Good seasonal selections and they seem to be turning over taps quickly. The service was fine, typical bar service. Itís next to a college so youíre not going to get world class knowledge, but youíre also not going to get high prices. No food, but you can bring in your own from anywhere in the area. So many options. Great place to watch a game. Iíll be back plenty.
