I occasionally get asked how many craft breweries Cincinnati has. I keep a list and figured that enough people have asked me that I should share my list of local craft breweries. Before we begin, a few comments on counting. If you don’t care about my reasoning for my counting than feel free to scroll past this.
Every year the Brewers Association updates their chart of the historical U.S. brewery count. This year I decided to create a chart for the historical Cincinnati brewery count.
I love this chart, it shows you the heights we used to stand upon, the crush of prohibition, the lows of the 70s, and the resurgent climb we are currently making. You should go check it out on their page because it’s interactive and they have other related charts.
