Been here twice this year before Reds games. First time we sat outside with a gorgeous view of the river. Had the Cuban with garlic fries which was very good. My beer was the Se7en Hefeweizen which went down easily on a warm day with just a little citrus hint. Only complaint was slow service due to being short-staffed, so I didn’t get a chance to get a taste sample (which I like to do if I’m trying a draft that I’ve never had). Second time we ate the bar and the bartender was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the food and beer. I had the mettwurst (1st time I ever tried it) which was outstanding along with the Golden Helles. I would probably consider this a go-to place for me when I go to downtown Cincinnati, especially before/after a Reds game.

Stopped in on an early saturday afternoon. Street parking, which means we had to park a few blocks away. The place has beautiful architecture, modern decor. We went straight up stairs and sat at the bar. Looks like they had about 30 taps upstairs and another 30 downstairs. The service was very good. The bartenders all seemed knowledgeable about beer and the brewery’s history. Pricing was pretty good, as well.

This place looked really nice inside and out, while the food was just as so. While having occasional rare taps, the variety itself is pretty impressive.

I really enjoyed my visit here. This brewpub is located downtown right next to the Reds ballpark. It is quite large, but also quite crowded when I was there. They have around 6-7 house taps and guest taps and bottles. I tried the IPA and pale ale, which I thought were really phenomenal. On their bottle list, they had Alesmith My Bloody Valentine (which has been a want of mine for quite some time...although now it is bottled, so easier to find I guess, but nonetheless, I was super excited to be able to order it). The guest offerings are nothing crazy, but include plenty of solid local beers and imports. The food menu is quite expansive and the food was really tasty. I got the smothered chicken and it was excellent and unfortunately too filling because I really wanted to try dessert too :-) I had no problems with the service during my visit. Definitely worth a stop while in Cincinnati and I would like to come by again.

I was really disappointed during my first, and likely only visit here. I came with some friends on a non-game day and the service was horrible. The bartender ignored us for a good 20 minutes before finally getting to us and it wasn’t even that busy. I would hate to try to get a beer there before a Reds or Bengals game. They had a great selection of beer but the prices were pretty steep.

I came here as part of a wedding rehearsal so I had a bit of a different experience. Food was top-notch and would definitely eat hear again. More of an upscale vibe than I was expecting with dark wood and fine finishings. I was a bit disappointed with the beer selection. All of their brews but no special house beers of limited offerings. The guest beers were nice but again, nothing out of the ordinary and pretty expensive I thought. A great place to take a date but I’m not sure how much time I’d spend here if I lived in Cincy.

Went here for the first time with a friend. Was pretty impressed. The place is beautiful on the outside, and even more beautiful on the inside. It’s a two-level place, we sat down at the spacious double-sided bar on the upstairs level. The bartenders were nice, courteous, and gave good service. Decent amount of respectable crafts, and new stuff to interest beer nerds - Great Lakes Rye of the Tiger was on tap when I visited. The menu was totally out of date, but at least they rotate their stuff often. Moerlein sometimes gets a bad rap here in Cinci for contracting their brews out, but some of the offerings available are actually brewed on-site, and were pretty respectable (I tried the Se7en Hefe). They also had bottles of Hudy 14-K available, I was happy to finally find that. Prices weren’t awful, especially considering the location. A lot better than I expected it to be.

A good brewpub next to GABP right on the river. Pricey, but that’s to be expected downtown. Food is good and so was the service so how busy it gets. Beer selection isn’t bad, but I’d like to see a little more brewery-only beers on draft.
