So this was a rather pleasant choice for a pre-interview dinner ina program I love in Cincinnati. Smack in the downtown area(fountain sq, 200ft from the hilton netherland where i was staying) which was also the epicentre of the city's christmas feel.

The place is massive, with a sort of modernised pub feel you get in some brewoubs across america. A nice feel with the production machinery among the tables, but in itself sort of sterile. It's also hard to define whether it's laid back or upscale at times. But overall it's pleasant.

Service may be quick or slow, depending on the volume of patrons. But slow isnt too slow and their rapport is kind overall. Fairly knowledgeable about their beers and menu and attentive to me.

They sport a generous selection of their house brews (5 or 6) with an akso broad (3 or 4) choice of seasonals (notably at the time, a barleywine and a winter wheat). I tried the IPA and the winter wheat which were very pleasant and fit for their style.

Food is amazing, and probably their best trait. I tried the laredo burger and the bbq pulled pork sandwich which were sublime and generous.

Overall, while not the best brewpub in the land, rock bottom was a pleasant intro to cincinnati for me, and worth coming back to. And if you get the chance, when done with your meal step right outside to grater's for a beautiful icce cream dessert.

This is not for beer geeks looking for rare or over the top selections but for groups just looking for fun. There were seven beers available, all of which were text book for the style but otherwise unremarkable. The food selection is definitely restaurant quality but all four in our group stated the meal was just okay. The aesthetic was excellent and though our waitress wasn't versed in the finer points of ales, she was extremely helpful, punctual and pleasant. I enjoyed my time at Rock Bottom and would definitely hit it up again.
