Rick Armon was in Cincinnati this weekend to promote his new book 50 Must-Try Craft Beers of Ohio and I grabbed him for a few minutes to do a live video about the book.
We stopped by Fretboard Brewing in Blue Ash to talk to the owners about the brewery, their location in Blue Ash and their upcoming grand opening “Jam Session” celebration!
Earlier this week we had the pleasure of stopping by FigLeaf Brewing Co., to talk about their big upcoming anniversary party. In between sampling tasty beers, we talked about their bridging the gap between Cincinnati and Dayton, how distribution is working out for them, their wealth of beer styles and so much more.
Don’t forget to bookmark their anniversary party, and we’ll see you there!
Plus you can check out all our shows at our Brew Minds page on YouTube.
It had to happen some time. Fresh on the heels of the release of fan-favorite Dreamsicle, MadTree Brewing announces they are canning “Pilgrim.”
Fans have been clamoring for Pilgrim Pale Ale to be canned since its initial release at the 1.0 facility. With the expansion at 2.0 in Oakley, MadTree now has the capacity to can the beer.
The brewery is also partnering with La Soupe and Busken bakery as part of the event.
Here are all the details on the release, straight from MadTree:
Jesse and I sat down with Fifty West owner Bobby Slattery to get the details on this weekend’s Punch Out: Round 2 event. We also get treated to early info on cans and bottles coming from Fifty West later this year!
If you are unaware of March First Brewing, don’t be hard on yourself. They’ve been intentionally flying under the radar for a few weeks, slowly seeping out to bars and restaurants around town. But this is only the very beginning of perhaps the most ambitious Cincinnati brewery yet.
Three years ago I talked to Steve Shaw at Cellar Dweller to learn more about this new Cincinnati brewery. I’d had a few of their beers, and they were mediocre, one was fantastic but sadly a one off. At the time, I couldn’t find much information about them so I headed to Valley Vineyards and went to the source.
Every month, I look through my archives and decided what to post for #ThrowbackThursday. It shcoked me to discover it’s really been three years since I first met Steve Shaw. Thinking about that, and a recent Facebook discussion, I decided I had to go out and catch up with all the changes that have happened at Cellar Dweller.
I got a special invitation to join MadTree in a session ale tasting and hear a special announcement. What follows part 1 of 2, with part 2 coming at a soon but as of yet undetermined time.
Blank Slate Brewing Company joined the Cincinnati brewing scene in Spring of 2012, and I sat down with him in the fall of that year. Realizing it’s been three years since then, we sat down for another interview recently. Scott and I talked for a long time, this is a long post please bear with it, it’s worth it. Also, hang tight for later this week or next when I’ll post part 2. Today, though, it’s all about Blank Slate Brewing Company!
