Amazing brewery with a fantastic atmosphere. My first experience was Oktoberfest this past year and it was incredibly fun, lots of entertainment including live music, corn hole, ping pong, fire dancers and jousting. It was honestly the best time I had that day. The space is huge and its really cool to see all of the historical elements in tact along with the brewing equipment. They brew a great variety of brews all of which are delicious and available to take in growlers.
I can't recommend this place enough.

After pulling up to an unassuming building I entered a building only knowing it was Rhinegeist from the small sign out front. After a few sets of stairs you enter a great open space full of tables to drink with friends, good music playing and ping pong and corn hole. The bar gets crowed at times but moves at a decent enough pace. This is a large space and on a saturday night was quite busy. The beer is great and they had a couple guest taps as well. Great place but pints could be a bit cheaper then $6 each.

Last weekend was my first trip to "The Geist" and it quickly eclipsed my list of favorite places to imbibe quality beers. The environment was unreal - great tunes, amazing people, plenty of space - and cornhole tournaments galore. Had it been for the environment alone it would have made it near the top of my list, but then there were the beers. While I was most excited for the IPA's, I started off with Cougar, a delicious Golden Ale, to keep my wits about me while I went through the list. Uncle was a delicious British Mild offering a light feeling beer which managed to have complex taste at the same time. Then there were the IPA's, hoppy and delicious. Truth knocked my socks off with the first hoppy yet citrusy taste. At 7.2% you have to be careful with how delicious it goes down. I was also fortunate enough to get a rare glimpse of the Saber Tooth Tiger Imperial IPA and this tiger is fierce. Packing an 8.5% whollup, it offers some serious hop followed with highlights of a variety of different citrus. I was so impressed I found myself there not only Friday, but Saturday and Sunday as well. Keep pouring fellas, you are brewing up some amazing stuff - can't wait to get back!

Went here back in September for my bachelor party. This place was amazing – seedy area though, but the second you get to that 3rd floor, the place opens up into an adult playground. The whole floor is opened up to a huge setting, with a big ass fan in the center. The beers were very tasty, with a good selection of Belgian pale ales at the time. They were giving out FREE bratwursts, and they had a horn band come in to play in front of the large fermentation vessels. On top of that, the Bengals won that day, so needless to say I had a great experience there. Will definitely go back. Anyone who's in Cinci needs to go and check this place out for sure.

This place is so cool. On the upper floor of a former bottling facility they have an INSANE amount of space. We watched college football while enjoying our tasters. They have about 6 beers available at any given time.

Once we picked our pints (4 of 4 had mosaic), we played bags one one of the 3 bags setups. There is also a ping pong table. The brewery is set up about 20 feet from where you sit, so tours are easy and you feel like part of the action.

No food on site, but they had BBQ from local favorite for a very reasonable price. Went great with my beer.

My inlaws live in cinci and I know we will become regulars when in town.

This is the most interesting brewery I have been to yet. The location is in the Over the Rhine section of Cincinnati which is a part of town that can be sketchy. It is a short walk from the Findlay Market which is a nice way to end your weekend shopping in the warmer seasons.

The gentlemen behind the company are true entrepreneurs and with the help of some investors hope to take some of the Midwest market from breweries like Lienenkugel's and Moerlein.

Their beers are delicous, the sampler is the way to go. However, if you were going to go for a pint I would suggest having a glass of their Truth IPA.

The atmosphere is very unique in that the brewery and tasting room are located in a large open area of the what used to be the original Moerlein Bottling Facility. The tasting room is equipped with a full bar and German style bench seating which creates a friendly environment.

No food on site but definitely worth the trip.

On a trip to Cincy I randomly came across this new brewery opening. Fortunately we were some of the first few people in the door. They have great space and I cannot wait to see what they do with it. They took over the Moerlein Brewing Company bottling building in Over the Rhine. They did a nice job of setting up the bar area with some cool art work and wooden benches. The bar is right next to the brew house which is cool to check out. They have a pretty big system for a new brewery. Overall the space is awesome.

The beers were good, I tried all 4 beers they had on opening day. It was nice to see the offered some sessionable beers in their initial offering. I enjoyed the Uncle (English Mild) and Truth (American IPA). They were right up my alley. The Cougar (Golden Ale) was ok, not really my style but true to form. I had a quick taste of their Spikelet and it was a more hoppy than wheat, hoppy wheat ale. It will be interesting to see what they have in store for the future of their line up.

Overall a nice place and good beer. I wish them the best of luck. Definitely check them out if you are in the area.
