Place is set up kind of like a lodge. Very cozy. 12 taps covering most all of your basic styles. All very solid, but nothing particularly mind blowing. The coffee stout was the best that we had, and to be honest, it was a truly exceptional example of the style. The owners seem to be young guys, but they are friendly and clearly giving this an honest effort. A free shuffleboard table is always a nice touch too. Servers were very pleasant and knew their product. Free pretzels and beer cheese from a local bakery chain are a super nice touch, and there is a food truck outside. A welcome addition to our growing beer scene in Cincinnati.
Have visited a few times since my original review, and it gets a little worse each time I go. The beer is always a little watery for the style. The service is usually nice, but as they seem to transition into a tapas bar, the stuff that made this place cool at first is continuing to go away. For the neighborhood, it's still good, and if this were five years ago, it would be a total destination in town. But the craft scene is changing a lot in Cincinnati, and this place isn't at the top of the pack.
