Stop #411 on my world brewery tour.

It's about time. I live less than 10 minutes from Fifty West and it's taken me the better part of a year to visit.

Really well done job with rehabbing an old house that never could find its business groove. Low ceilings and mood lighting create a cozy atmosphere. Lots of beers on tap and if you get there..I think it's before six, you can get a flight of beers for $5.

I did two of those and went with a full pour of the cask citra dry hop punch you in the eyIPA which was a very nice beer. Can't help but mention the Phish-inspired beer names. Also had a Slave to the Traffic Light Amber.

All the beers from top two bottom were very well done and there was enough experimentation with (seasonal) ingredients to keep me wanting to make periodic visits.

The two ladies behind the bar were friendly and did a well above average job in describing the beers to those with questions.

I'll be back!

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.
