A higher end craft beer bar in the trendy OTR bar district of Cincinnati. Always around 12 quality crafts on tap. Of all the bars in town, this one seems to consistently get more rare and harder to find handles, the selection is usually pretty interesting. The primary downside might be the OTR-prices, however. Taps can be pretty expensive sometimes. The bar isnít too big, the atmosphere is really cool, the whole place is really beautiful and comfortable. Long bar, and tables with comfortable seats. Windows open wide when the weather is nice, allows for a nice breeze to come in. Typically good music playing, and a lot of good company. Staff is always very hospitable, and the guys that run this place know their beer. Great place, one of my most-frequented.

Iím not from Cincinnati and so the prices seemed a little steep considering the surrounding neighborhood. Lame music. No flights. Found happy hour and a deal on a seasonal. Small place. Not as much plaid as I expected in the clientele but the fauxhawk guy is nailing it. ...You can always find me coz Iím always alone... New world order!

Great beer bar in OTR. They have a good tap selection, and get some good bottles in as well. Good happy hour with friendly and attentive staff. A great spot in downtown Cincinnati.

Small bar on a very visible corner in OTR of Cincinnati. Fourteen taps, all killer, no fillers. Large beer menu to boot.

(Visited 07/2011): The Lackman is located on Vine and 13th street on the north side of downtown. Street parking looks to be the only option in the immediate vicinity. The bar is located in the Lackman building which is named for a brewery located in Cincinnati in the early 1900s. The interior is cleanly laid out with the bar wrapping around on the left side. Red padded bar stools and an arched mirror adorn the bar itself. The rest of the space is devoted to The Lackman has 14 beers on tap, including local options like Rivertown and Christian Moerlein. Other craft brewers like Stone, Bells and Rogue are available too. As for bottles there are over 50. Aside from the domestic macros, they serve regional beers like Kentucky Brewing, BBC and Christian Moerlein. Many common domestic microbreweries are represented too. As for imports they have a few such as Petrus, Chimay and the like. Lastly they have a section of the beer menu devoted to "Big Beers" like Stone VE, The Bruery Mischief, and DFH Sahí Tea. Service on an early afternoon was good. The bartenders were friendly and attentive while we were there. Not beer or service related per se but they make a damn good "Presbyterian" drink here too. We did not have any food on our visit. Overall this is a great spot to check out in the downtown Cincy area.

The Lackman is one of Cincinnatiís newest and best beer bars. The ambiance is modern and classy with very comfortable bar seating. 14 rotating taps focus on American crafts and Belgians. They seem to regularly get rare beers and serve in the appropriate glassware. Plenty of bottles are also available. Service has always been friendly, prompt, and knowledgable. They do not serve food but thereís plenty of great options nearby. Always a worthwhile stop.

On the corner of 13th and Vine with parking on street and pay lots. Nicely remodeled small building with tile floor, wood bar and slide open front windows. Good selection of taps and bottles and I had two new beers for me. Freindly staff with good knoewledge of beers. Some talk of opening a brewpub nearby sometime in near future. Happy hour prices of $3.50 a pint. Good downtown location.

Lackman is in the most happening neighborhood in Cincinnati, OTR. This is downtown Cincinnatiís premier craft bar. Nice selection, though perhaps a little too pretentious at times. Beer doesnít have to be limited to be good! Lackman has occasional tap takeover events that are well attended, feature a great selection and sometimes even attract a brewmaster.

The Lackman just opened in Cincinnatiís Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, taking the logo of the old Lackman Brewery as its own. The interior is simple, hip, and unpretentious. It isnít huge, but wasnít overly crowded when we tried it out a couple weeks after the grand opening. There are 14 taps, with DFH, Goose Island, Victory, Dark Horse, Stone, Bear Republic, and more. There werenít a ton of bottles; they opened with 30, had about 50 by the time I visited, and said more will be showing up. However, there were some cool ones, like Dark Horse Trip Ale, 2 versions of Saison du BUFF, and a good variety of other stuff. I hope this place does well and continues the beer and overall revitalization going on in OTR, Cincyís old brewing district. Iíll be back to help them out for sure.
