A fine brewery with a solid rotating selection of in house ale ranging from American pale ales to Russian imperial stout, Belgian style quads, and superb barley wine. Also in the rotation are nice barrel aged offerings as well as limited release bottles. Good service, friendly and attentive. Knowledgeable staff on the suds, and pretty unique food with local ingredients. Only down side is the selections are rather limited but all pretty good from the various meals me and the little lady have enjoyed there. Interior of the one time Heritage House, where Marge Schott would often eat dinners, is rustic with lots of wood and decently comfortable seating. Bartenders keep a decent mood flowing besides the suds with a turntable spinning some great classic vinyl.

Decently priced growlers to go, good unique food, and good staff.

Not much more one can ask for from a brewery/eatery.

Stopped by on Tuesday 2/24/15. The place was absolutely packed (we'd find out why quickly). There was no room at the bar so we were seated in the restaurant side of the brewery. It's located in the Bavarian style village of Mariemont, a suburb of Cincinnati. The brewery continues the Bavarian look and feel just like the town. It's pretty cool.

After being seated we found out why the place was packed, it was penny flip pint night. Basically, pick the pint of beer you'd like and your server flips a penny and if you guess heads or tails correctly then your pint costs a penny. What an aweome promotion. After four pints I decided I couldn't keep this pace up and decided on a flight to finish trying all the interesting beers on the tap list.

With that, all the beers I tried were very good to flat out fantastic. Their DIPA, Punch You In The EyePA, was hands down the star of the night. So juicy and citrusy. They also had a couple barrel aged beers on tap that were very good. Service was fine. Our server stopped by enough to let you know he was watching but not too many times to be bothersome.

Overall, a fantastic brewery and restaurant that is pumping out great beer along with very tasty food. Looking forward to my next Cincy trip later this summer. I'll definitely hit up Fifty West for some more great beer.

While the atmosphere is nice, with hardwood, exposed rafters, and stone everywhere you look, the service is anything but attentive - and that's sitting at the bar itself. It seems as though they're pushing the food menu more than the beer list.

Had to re-review this place. They have really stepped up their game since they've opened. The vibe is awesome the place is dimly lit and has a cozy cottage feel to it. The quality is really what has impressed me. I've been back a few times lately for special Bourbon Barrel releases and they are top notch. The best I've had in the city hands down. The only competition in the category in the state that I can think of is Jackie-O's. Service seems pretty good the wait staff is friendly and the bar staff seem cool. The selection is better than average but the only knock I give them is I believe they only serve mostly if not all their beers. The food has been hit or miss for me but I have some friends that swear on certain items.

Definitely a must stop place for any craft drinkers that want the full craft experience in Cincinnati and even for those that may not be huge fans of your more rugged industrial style brewery or brewpub. This place has the nicest and coziest taproom in the city.
