    Braxton's Evan Rouse Talks Graeter's And Growth

    Braxton's Evan Rouse Talks Graeter's And Growth

    It seems that we say this every time we sit down with someone from Braxton Brewing Company, but it’s been a whirlwind of growth for them lately. The past year has shown an insane flurry of action around their VIVE seltzer products and it’s easy to get lost down the rabbit hole of what that’s all about. Today’s episode? It brings us back to something that is very much at the heart of what makes Braxton who they are in Cincinnati.







    The Graeter’s partnership.







    These are two companies that have a lot in common – just at very different parts of their life. Like an extended family they’ve come together again this year for a series of products to showcase not just who they have been (in the case of Graeters… for 150 years) but who these companies are at their core today – and who they hope to be in the coming years. There’s a lot to this, and we dove into it all to see what it’s all about.







    If you are curious about the beer itself. (or one of the beers that we’ll see from this collaboration in 2020) you can read tasting notes here – or read about the release here – but in my book – you can do no better than hearing Evan talk about the collaboration (and then heading out to buy some when it hit’s a shelf close to you)

    Higher Gravity - Who, What, Where, Why? This Place Rocks.

    Higher Gravity - Who, What, Where, Why? This Place Rocks.

    I love bottle shops. I especially love a bottle shop that bucks the trend and helps create a new category of what that means the way that places like Higher Gravity has – and much like I say way to often anymore (that might mean something about how much fun stuff is happening in Cincinnati) this is far too long in the making. I’m thrilled to have this week’s episode take place at Northside’s Higher Gravity where we talked about who they are, and where the came from – along with some great insight into why they’re opening a second location in Blue Ash soon. It’s a peek behind the curtain, and a great insight into the type of people they are.







    I can’t give enough thanks to Jason and Nick for taking a few moments out of their busy schedule to make this one happen, and even to Mike Stokes who thought he was going to just grab a quick beer on the way home an ended up getting roped into a second half of the episode.







    I might have just met them… but I like these guys – a lot.

    Off Track Brewing Company, From The Dunlap Cafe

    Off Track Brewing Company, From The Dunlap Cafe

    They might be small, but Off Track has a few things going for them that I’m absolutely in love with. Number one? Their beer is delicious. Number two? The freaking Dunlap Cafe serves as their “unofficial” taproom since they are a production only brewery right now. We talk all things Off Track to get to know the folks behind the brewery, as well as how they got started. We even take a peek into the future to see where they plan on this all going someday.







    This episode asks the questions that you’ve all been asking about Off Track, and hopefully gives you a peek behind the curtain to see why you should make your way down to the Dunlap to snag one (or two) of their beers and show them some love!

    Firehouse Grill and Brewery, Im Excited!

    Firehouse Grill and Brewery, Im Excited!

    We caught up this week with the folks from the upcoming Firehouse Grill and Brewery in Blue Ash to get a picture of who they are and what they’re all about. Firehouse Grill has been a staple of Cincinnati’s craft beer scene for years now, and the next step to open up their own brewery is a natural one. We talk about their beers, and how they plan to integrate the kitchen into their beer program even deeper now that they’ll be brewing their own. It’s an exciting evolution for them, and a fun one for all of us drinkers to take part in!

    Humble Monk Brewing Company, Belgian Inspired, Cincinnati Beer.

    Humble Monk Brewing Company, Belgian Inspired, Cincinnati Beer.

    I have been trying to get this one planned and scheduled for a long time now, and was thrilled to finally get the chance to sit down and explore Humble Monk Brewing with you this week! Humble Monk is located in Northside and while they lean heavily on Belgian style beer, you’ll quickly figure out that it’s not all they are about.







    We talked about how they got started, what they’re all about and even took a little peek into the future for them to see how they envision themselves growing into an ever evolving beer scene here in Cincinnati.

    Emancipator, Little Kings, And Christian Moerlein's New Ownership Team

    Emancipator, Little Kings, And Christian Moerlein's New Ownership Team

    It’s an exciting time down at Christian Moerlein, and I’m not just talking about it almost being Bockfest time again… no, they’ve got plenty of other stuff going on, besides that. I sat down with Greg Hardman and the new ownership team to talk about everything that’s been happening. The team discusses what it takes to bring Moerlein into the future of craft beer, and what that means for brands that we love around here (like Little Kings!). It’s a great conversation and is made even better by the Emancipator Doppelbock that was flowing.

The Gnome is Awesome!

I really enjoy listening to the Gnome while driving or home alone. He makes me feel like I am there with him chatting along with the people he is interviewing.

Despite his candor and (bad) jokes, he always manages to put together a cohesive show to introduce me to the local breweries and news on what is coming next.

Awesome !

A great introduction to all of the breweries popping up all over the greater Cincinnati area. Seriously makes me want to visit them all. This podcast gives you an overview of Cincinnati beer and gives you an understanding of craft beer as an industry.
