A new brewery in one of Cincinnati's eastern-most neighborhoods will include an eclectic restaurant that aims to cater to all tastes, and it's expected to open by the end of this month.

 

Dead Low Brewing at 5959 Kellogg Ave. in the California neighborhood of Cincinnati plans to open its brewery, taproom, full-service restaurant and outdoor beer garden in the last week of September. Flip through the photos for a look inside.

 

Dead Low was founded by brother and sister Christine Hall and Paul Ganimand their friend Kyle Havens, the latter two of whom are founding members of the fraternal brewing cooperative Big Ash.

Speaking of Big Ash, their self-serving taproom opened Friday in the former Tumbleweeds / Los Portales Mexican restaurant in Skytop Pavilion. It's an interesting concept, but a hassle when they are busy. I'll allow for them to work the kinks out and visit again in the coming months.

Braxton sets opening date for new taproom and barrel-aging facility

 

Covington's Braxton Brewing Co. will open its third facility, one that embraces its native state's bourbon heritage, by the end of this month.

 

Braxton is hosting the grand opening of its Braxton Barrel House in the former Fort Mitchell Remke Market building at 2501 Dixie Highway on Sept. 27. The taproom and barrel-aging facility is part of a redevelopment by 360 Property Partners.

 

The Braxton Barrel House will have a 1,500- to 2,000-square-foot patio and a taproom, but the centerpiece will be a 20,000-square-foot rickhouse in the building's subterranean warehouse.

Old Firehouse Brewery out in Williamsburg has closed. This past weekend was their last.

I had heard that they was for sale and was having issues finding a buyer. It is a shame really, it was a great brewery and very family friendly, always let you bring your own food and had plenty of stuff for kids to do.

East Side's newest brewery comes with a pour-your-own option

 

bigashbrewery-1*750xx1440-810-0-75.jpg

 

The East Side's newest brewery, born from a fraternal brewing collective, is now open in Anderson Township, with a unique tap system that allows visitors to pour their own beer by the ounce.

 

Big Ash Brewing at 5230 Beechmont Ave. hosted its grand opening on Sept. 6. Flip through the photos for a look inside.

 

The brewery got its start as a fraternal brewing collective based out of Anderson Township back in 2011. The collective grew to more than 50 members, outgrowing founder Dave Embry's garage, so they decided to open a legit brewery.

Craft beers. You mean that stuff which smells like a shunk and tastes worse. Just what is the attraction to craft beers? Might as well go back to home brew laced with moonshine. That stuff had a kick too, but who wanted to drink it? I can't think of anything which can kill the gentrirication of OTR faster than craft beer.

German-style beer hall coming to Historic West Fourth Street

 

211wfourth*750xx2048-1150-0-342.jpg

 

A German-style beer hall is coming to downtown Cincinnati’s Historic West Fourth Street.

 

Listermann Brewing Co. has signed a lease for about 8,500 square feet of space on the first floor of the former Scientology building at 211 W. Fourth St. An affiliate of the Loring Group acquired the building at the beginning of May.

 

The beer hall was announced Friday as the Loring Group revealed the new Historic West Fourth identity for the district.

 

Andrew Naab, director of commercial development at Loring Group, said the new Listermann Brewing space is being done in partnership with Jackson Rouse, formerly head chef of Bauer Farm Kitchen. The beer hall is scheduled to open in fall 2020.

Fretboard partners with restaurant group to fill shuttered brewery space

 

screen-shot-2019-10-10-at-105852-am*750x

 

Fretboard Brewing Co. is partnering with the restaurant group behind Tahona Kitchen + Bar and S.W. Clyborne Provision & Spirits to open a brewpub inside of a Hamilton brewery that closed earlier this year.

 

Blue Ash-based Fretboard and Looking Glass Hospitality Group are opening the Fretboard Brewing & Public House inside of the former Quarter Barrel Brewery & Pub space at 103 Main St. in Hamilton. Quarter Barrel closed its two locations in Hamilton and Oxford in January.

 

The Fretboard Brewing & Public House will be a brewery and restaurant on three floors with a rooftop deck right on the banks of the Great Miami River. It's the first time Fretboard and Looking Glass are partnering together, but the groups have a long relationship.

Sam Adams' 'most extreme beer' will be on tap for first time ever in Cincinnati

 

Samuel Adams' rarest, most potent brew will be on tap for the first time ever, and only in the brewery's Cincinnati taproom.

 

Boston Beer Co. (NYSE: SAM) is releasing the latest incarnation of its annual Utopias series on Oct. 15, and in a special celebration of the brewery's one-year anniversary of its taproom in founder Jim Koch's hometown, it will be on draft for the first time ever in the Samuel Adams Cincinnati Taproom on Nov. 15.

 

So what are Sam Adams Utopias? Koch has long argued that beer is just as complex and varied as wine, and this was well before the current craft beer craze – he started Boston Beer in 1984. He set out to prove that beer can be unlike anything people have ever tasted before with the birth of the Utopias series in 2002.

CINCINNATI'S BEER: Rhinegeist prepares to hand the keys over to its employees

https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2019/10/18/rhinegeist-is-handing-the-keys-over-to-its.html?iana=hpmvp_cinci_news_headline

 

Rhinegeist was only two years old at the time but already one of Cincinnati’s largest craft breweries, and it was being dogged by acquisition rumors. Mooney recalls asking Bonder about the industry.

 

I asked Bob, ‘Do you think you’ll ever do that? And he said, ‘No, we’ll be employee-owned,’” Mooney said.

 

It wasn’t something the brewery advertised widely at the time, but it was a promise Bonder kept: The Over-the-Rhine-based brewery – today Cincinnati’s largest locally owned craft brewery (by beer brewed) and the second-largest in the state of Ohio, behind Great Lakes Brewing Co. – told its employees in June that it is handing over the keys through an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) that will kick off in the middle of 2020.

 

The move will cement Rhinegeist’s presence as a major local craft brewery in an industry that grew up in the shadow of corporate-owned giants.

Columbus' BrewDog sets opening date for massive Pendleton taproom and restaurant

 

The United Kingdom's largest craft brewery, with its American headquarters in Columbus, has set an opening date for its long-awaited Pendleton taproom and restaurant.

 

Scotland-based BrewDog plans to open its second-largest U.S. bar in 8,500 square feet at 316 Reading Road in Pendleton on the week of Nov. 11.

 

The massive restaurant and bar was first announced in October of 2018. Since then, the brewery has been pretty quiet in public as to its plans.

Three years after legal dispute MadTree brings back old favorite

 

Three years after a dispute with a California winery, Cincinnati's MadTree Brewing Co. is bringing back one of its original flagship beers.

 

Oakley-based MadTree is re-launching its brown ale, originally called "Gnarly Brown," as Knotty Brown, available Monday in its taproom and in the coming weeks at retailers. The brewery hasn't canned the beer in more than three years and has only had it available occasionally on draft in its taproom.

 

MadTree had been brewing the brown ale since its inception in 2013. It was when the brewery tried to trademark the name "Gnarly Brown" that a Manteca, Calif.-based winery, Delicato Family Vineyards, filed a notice of opposition.

Scotland-based brewery BrewDog, the United Kingdom's largest craft brewer, is opening its second-largest U.S. taproom in Cincinnati's Pendleton neighborhood at the end of this week.

 

BrewDog, whose U.S. headquarters is in Canal Winchester, Ohio, is opening its Pendleton brewpub at 316 Reading Road to the public on Nov. 15. Flip through the photos for a look inside.

 

The BrewDog space is massive – 8,500 square feet with an additional 1,000-square-foot rooftop deck. The brewpub is open, but divided into different areas: the main bar sits in front of the kitchen, which serves a menu of elevated "junk food," as BrewDog's head of retail Jonathan Quick told me.

Braxton Brewing is betting big on hard seltzer

 

One of Cincinnati's largest craft breweries was early onto the scene in capturing the nascent, and now exploding, hard seltzer craze, and now Braxton Brewing is betting big on that beverage's future for its business.

That branding is more reminiscent of vitamin water or some high-electrolyte drink. I don't see how they compete in the market space with the likes of Kitty Paws.

never heard of it before. The biggest issue I see with Seventh Son's approach is that it looks like a craft beer. It doesn't look like a hard seltzer. I think that would be preferred for some people who want to drink local, but I think a lot of the hard seltzer drinkers aren't as concerned about that and won't think it's a seltzer from the packaging. I also think the market share for hard seltzers is going to spike next summer and then quickly dwindle. But we'll see.

 

The next big thing seems to be "light IPAs" which will probably see a spike next summer and take away some of the market share from these seltzers. Braxton definitely seems to want to compete on the national stage. We'll see what happens, though.

All Day IPA from Founders is one of my favorites. Also, Slightly Mighty by Dogfish is superb. I'm looking forward to more local light IPAs.

Maybe. I think the similarity in name to White Claw goes a long way toward making it clear what Kitty Paw is. Anyway,. I was being somewhat tongue-in-cheek about Kitty Paw as being the brand to beat. I just think the Vive branding doesn't seem consistent with the product or target audience.

Interesting, I didn't know these were spiking in popularity. They were getting big before the haze craze (NEIPA) was getting big, but the appetite for ~4.5-5% IPAs seemed to be replaced by enthusiasm for ~6% NEIPAs (still weaker than the 7+% west coast IPAs that ushered in the craft beer wave). Maybe session NEIPAs will be the new hotness.

There's actually a distinction between a "Session IPA" and a "Light IPA" or "Low Calorie IPA".

https://www.thrillist.com/news/nation/bells-light-hearted-ale-low-calorie-beer-two-hearted-ipa

^Here's just one example. The Session IPA tries to maintain the taste of an IPA with a lower alcohol content, but still has around 150 calories per 12 oz. The "Light IPA" or "Low Calorie IPA" also has fewer calories. The standard Bell's Two Hearted IPA has 212 calories. The 2020 release of the Light Hearted IPA will have 110 calories.

 

Regular IPA: 200+ Calories

Session IPA: ~150 Calories

Low-Cal IPA: ~100 Calories

I'd say the hard seltzer thing has more in common with the wine cooler, Zima and Smirnoff Ice demographics of the past than beer drinkers... but beer has been hot for 600 years while those other ones are associated with coming of age in 1992, 1997 and 2002 respectively.

I really liked Rhinegeist's Zen Session IPA but they no longer can it. The website says it is "draft-only" but I haven't seen it anywhere in years.

 

Not a big fan of the hazy IPAs that have been taking over recently.

Cincinnati brewery answers hard seltzer question with new brew

cph1682-edit*750xx8255-4643-0-33.jpg

A Cincinnati craft brewery is launching a new low-calorie brew with added electrolytes to meet the rapidly growing demand for better-for-you beverages brought on by the explosion of hard seltzers.

 

Fifty West Brewing Co., at 7668 Wooster Pike in Mariemont, is releasing Quencher, a 100-calorie watermelon and lime ale with reduced gluten and added electrolytes. Quencher will land at local Kroger stores on Jan. 6. It's the brewery's answer to the hard seltzer craze.

 

"The industry as a whole is turning to better-for-you beverages," Fifty West vice president of strategy Max Fram told me. "People aren't cutting alcohol out of their life, but they are more conscious of what they're putting in their bodies. That culminated in the seltzer boom."

Fifty West Brewing expands as bike trail extends

 

Fifty West Brewing Co. is expanding its campus in Columbia Township as the Little Miami Scenic Trail is being extended.

 

Fifty West is adding a burger and beer garden to its property at 7668 Wooster Pike. At the same time, Great Parks of Hamilton County and Columbia Township plan to complete phase one of their initiative to extend the Little Miami Scenic Trail into Mariemont. The shared-use trail will extend from Newtown Road to Walton Creek and include direct access to Fifty West’s new restaurant and beer garden.

 

Bobby Slattery, founder of Fifty West, said the brewery has been working on the extension of the trail for 10 years. As the trail is now moving forward, Fifty West will be making an investment of more than $1 million to upgrade its campus.

 

“We will make a significant investment into making our back door become every bit as inviting as our front door,” Slattery told me.

Cincinnati craft brewery to open rooftop deck

 

A Cincinnati craft brewery is set to host a ribbon cutting and grand opening of its newly enclosed rooftop deck this month.

 

Milford's Little Miami Brewing Co., which opened its doors on the banks of the Little Miami River at 208 Mill St. at the tail end of 2017, is hosting a ribbon cutting and official opening of its brand new rooftop deck on March 28.

 

The 1,200-square-foot rooftop bar and deck replaced a temporary tent that covered an outdoor patio. It adds 75 seats to the 90-seat taproom, with an additional 66 seats on the enclosed lower level.

Many of the country's new microbreweries will go out of business permanently thanks to this multi-month shut-down.  I'm not going to speculate as to which ones will die but nearly all of them have borrowed large sums of money to expand on top of their original construction debt.   They're not going to reopen quickly under new ownership because there won't be a lot of cash sitting around for people to buy up defunct microbreweries.
