Those businesses tend to not make it in the long run. See Blank Slate. Do your thing and fly your freak flag but you have to offer something for the wider beer geek public rather than having everything taste like it came out of the same tank.

Guys at Streetside warned us we probably wouldn’t like it. They were right.

I agree for Cincinnati. For now. The specialty thing can work in some cities. We have at least two breweries here that are exclusively sours, one that does mostly farmhouse, and now three that are doing only the crisp German beers (much to my delight - we need more of that). But we have something like 70 breweries within city limits and people come here to drink, so it can work. It's probably still a bit early in Cincinnati. That's why places that are more well-rounded - like MadTree, Rheingeist, Streetside, etc. - are big hits.

against the grain is awesome! i lived in louisville for a year and a half and fell in love with the place. they've done some tasty collabs w/ 3 floyds, hoof & upland (the overcompensation dipa being one of my favorites).

plus the bbq is top notch. i order the brisket with a side of cheesy grits every visit and damn is it delicious.

glad to hear it. brink is slowly turning heads around the city.


i was able to grab hoof hearted's sunday release (400 tickets sold out in 1 second), the flagship being the quadruple dry hopped konkey dong tripa w/ the matching teku:

Fwiw, Wiseacre and Memphis Made beat Ghost River in Memphis hands down IMO (although I am a fan of their Grindhouse cream ale).
A new one opens tomorrow - Crosstown Brewers.
